Following consultation with its members, APTRA has decided to extend membership of the association to companies which can offer services of value to member companies and to the industry as a whole. This initiative to facilitate a new category of associate member follows expressions of interest in membership from various companies offering services which are associated with, or relevant to, the duty free and travel retail business in the Asia Pacific region.

These may include food and beverage operators, research consultancies, investment companies and other consultancies involved in the duty free and travel retail business.

The benefits to the Associate Members are as follows:

  • A response to demand following expressions of interest from companies not qualified for membership
  • Access to certain APTRA services (database, website, seminars)
  • Seminar sponsorship and networking possibilities
  • Participation in seminars
  • Research sponsorship possibilities
  • Participation in future committees on industry related issues

The cost of associate membership has been fixed at an annual fee of 5500 USD.
