Next year's TFWA World Exhibition trade fair has been brought forward by a month.

Travel retail trade body Tax Free World Association (TFWA) announced today (16 November) that the 2011 exhibition, held every year in Cannes, France, has been moved to the 18 to 23 September, to accommodate the G20 meeting scheduled to be held in the city in early-November. This year's exhibition took place between 17 and 22 October.

“TFWA is committed to a successful TFWA World Exhibition 2011 and will endeavour to minimise the disruption that this change of dates may cause to visitors, exhibitors, contractors and other stakeholders,” the trade body said.
