MEADFA was established in 2001 with the aim of ensuring the continued growth of the duty free business in the Middle East. MEDFA also aims to ensure that high standards continue to be maintained in the region's airport retail operations.
An upbeat MEADFA Conference saw an increase in attendees over the previous edition with nearly 500 delegates gathering at the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel venue in Dubai early this year. There was strong representation from suppliers, while the number of retailers and landlords present also rose. Geographically, the Middle East as host region enjoyed a 4% uplift in delegates and came close to outnumbering the European contingent, until now the largest.
The 2018 Middle East & Africa Duty Free Association (MEADFA) Conference will take place in Beirut, Lebanon.<< Back
