Retail inMotion has received the In-Flight Retailer of the Year award at the Frontier Awards 2019, hailed as the Oscars of the travel retail industry. The winners of this year’s Frontier Awards were revealed on October 2 at the Tax Free World Association Exhibition (TFWA) in Cannes, France.
The Frontier Awards have been celebrating excellence, achievement, and creativity within the travel retail sector for almost four decades. 2019 has been a very competitive year for the industry’s oldest and most acclaimed awards.
“We are honored to receive this prestigious award,” commented Stefan Patermann, CEO at Retail inMotion “This underlines the hard work of our excellent team, which serves our customers around the globe with leading innovations and quality. I would like to thank everyone on the team for making this award possible,” he added.
Andrea Fiore, Head of Global Sales at Retail inMotion, said: “After winning “Catering Innovation of the Year” at WTCE Hamburg earlier this year, this award truly cements us as the best in both Buy-On-Board and Boutique / Duty Free sectors.”
Retail inMotion’s most recent achievements in the Boutique / Duty Free sector include the launch of our partnership with Etihad, the continuing innovations with Eurowings, SunExpress and Edelweiss, the formidable growth at Aer Lingus and the contract award of the industry’s largest fully outsourced retail program, Cathay Pacific. Retail inMotion’s openness and transparency were described as important brand values that the company continues to bring to the industry and that were instrumental in helping us come out on top in the In-Flight Retailer of the Year category, rising above the competition.
This award marks the second consecutive year when Retail inMotion gets a nod at the Frontier Awards. Last year, Retail inMotion’s Category Manager Nicole Tavernier received the prestigious “Talent of Tomorrow” Award.
