We represent all members of the association to strengthen, nurture & protect our industry


Supporting members through meaningful research, knowledge share, networking opportunities and advocating our industry when facing regulatory challenges


Established in 2005, APTRA (The Asia Pacific Travel Retail Association) is a not-for-profit organization serving the interests of multiple stakeholders in the Duty Free & Travel Retail Industry across Asia Pacific, spanning airports, brands, retailers, food & beverage operators, airlines and Travel Retail industry associates.

APTRA enhances regional communication, enriches knowledge and assists members with regulatory negotiations. It also represents members and advocates against legislative changes

that may adversely affect the industry, ensuring members are brought together and represented as one impartial voice.

APTRA also supports members by sharing relevant information, data and research on different aspects of Travel Retail.

Membership is open to all Travel Retail industry stakeholders. Bringing this unique blend of Travel Retail partners together, APTRA encourages participation amongst members to recognize synergies and common needs around knowledge, networking and advocacy.



Knowledge is power and our strategy is to ensure our members have access to commercially relevant data and knowledge to support business success. APTRA commissions valuable research on a macro, regional and consumer market level, offering deeper insights into Travel Retail across Asia Pacific.


APAC is a region with a fast-paced changing regulatory landscape across a large, dynamic geography that can present challenges to business as regulatory changes can spring out of nowhere. APTRA supports members by facilitating engagement between industry stakeholders, regulatory bodies and government departments.


Travel Retail is a dynamic marketplace that thrives on networking. We offer valuable networking opportunities such as 'APTRA Exchange', specialist category 'APTRA Insights seminars' and 'Airport Forum meetings'. Our comprehensive directory of key decision makers is a valuable tool available exclusively to our members.
