The Moodie Davitt Virtual Travel Retail Expo features a star-studded series of events across the five days, including a Symposium, category workshops and a new consumer research initiative. Early bird rates for exhibitor bookings expire on 1 June.

Welcome to a trade show like no other in industry history

The Moodie Davitt Report has partnered with Singapore and London-based FILTR, a travel retail specialist agency, providing design and communications services for a wide range of industry players. As official Virtual Stand & Experience Partner, FILTR has created an EXPO team to support all exhibitors in maximising the potential of the event.


FILTR’s large in-house creative department, consisting of 3D/interior, graphic and digital designers, will help bring each exhibitor’s vision for their digital stand to life. Within the Exhibitor Package, FILTR will be on hand to lead exhibitors through all aspects of preparing their stands.

The easily navigable Virtual Travel Retail Expo includes the Knowledge Hub, Exhibition Hub and Experience Hub. Buyers will be able to navigate the Exhibition Hub without leaving their desks. Note the newly created Association Lounge.

The Expo also features an outstanding programme in the Knowledge Hub, featuring some of the biggest names in the business. The programme will be spread across the full five days, and will include keynote presentations, live and pre-recorded interviews, workshops, motivational addresses and much more.


Fast-growing Seva Group is a landmark partner of the event

The Experience Hub will host several virtual lounges for networking and engagement with visitors beyond the Exhibition Hub.

Available to all exhibitors, the Engagement Lounge features four platforms to launch, promote and educate about products through virtual masterclasses, tastings and demonstrations. Either live or pre-recorded, these 30-minute segments will be streamed to a global audience, including the option to invite a number of KOLs and category influencers, plus B2B and B2C press.

China Duty Free Group and The SEVA Group are Diamond Partners for the event. An outstanding array of Platinum, Gold and Silver Partners will be named over coming days with inquiries pouring in before the 1 June ‘Early bird’ rates expire.

The Moodie Davitt Virtual Travel Retail Expo 2020 Press Centre is hosted and managed by FILTR. This is a complimentary service for all exhibitors and their representatives, as well as registered press on a pre-approved basis. The Moodie Davitt Report is working closely with selected B2B and B2C titles as preferred media partners; together with a specialist agency to bring selected KOLs to the event.

“This is among the proudest days in our company’s 18-year history,” said The Moodie Davitt Report Founder & Chairman Martin Moodie. “In the space of just two months we have gone from a conceptual notion to a cutting-edge yet easily navigable Virtual Expo that offers accessibility, cost efficiency, measurable ROI for exhibitors, outstanding lead generation and relationship building. It is a premium event for a premium audience.

“The FILTR and Moodie Davitt teams have moved mountains to make this all happen in such a short time. Now we can focus on working with our exhibitor partners to curate a high-quality Expo experience and to maximise awareness of the event among the retailer and airport community worldwide. Today, for once, Virtual became reality.”
