Montreal, 20 July 2012 – ACI World is pleased to announce that the world’s leading airport commercial revenues conference, The Trinity Forum 2013, will be held in Abu Dhabi from 29 to 31 January 2013 and hosted by Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC).
The Trinity Forum, jointly organized by ACI and The Moodie Report, is the preeminent industry destination to meet and advance discussions and mutual understanding of developments in the airport retail industry.

ADAC Chief Commercial Officer Mohammed Al Bulooki said: “Abu Dhabi Airports Company is proud to host the ACI Airport Business and Trinity Forum 2013 in January at Abu Dhabi. The Trinity Forum has established itself as the leading Industry platform to discuss and debate the latest developments in the dynamic airport retail industry with senior representatives from the world’s largest duty free retailers, leading international brands and the most progressive airports attending from around the world. Exchanging knowledge and identifying new trends certainly adds value in developing the customer experience and maximising revenue growth for all parties involved in the Trinity. This is a key focus for Abu Dhabi International Airport which strives to create unique world class shopping experiences for its diverse audiences. Abu Dhabi Airports Company looks forward to welcoming delegates from across the world to Abu Dhabi.”

According to Angela Gittens, Director General, ACI World, “ACI World is enthusiastic about the selection of Abu Dhabi as the host for our 2013 Trinity Forum. The Middle East is a vibrant, growing aviation market and Trinity conference attendees will undoubtedly learn new techniques and strategies to maximize non-aeronautical revenue at airports around the globe. We are proud of our partnership with The Moodie Report and look forward to another outstanding event in 2013.”

Martin Moodie, Chairman and Founder of The Moodie Report, stated: “We’re thrilled that The Trinity Forum, an event and concept close to our heart, is to be hosted by such a progressive airport company. As can be seen by the remarkable and ongoing transformation of the commercial offer at Abu Dhabi International Airport, ADAC believes in a high-quality, consumer-led retail proposition. It is among the most pro-active of all airports worldwide in working with fellow industry stakeholders to improve the commercial proposition, integrate it with the operational side of business, and grow revenues for all. The ultimate winner, as we have seen time and again when the Trinity concept flourishes, is the travelling consumer.”

New this year, The Moodie Report has called an RFP (Request for Proposals) to identify new ideas for subjects and issues to be debated at The Trinity Forum 2013. Please send your thoughts to by the end of July.

The programme will be published in September. According to Martin Moodie, “We really want to ensure that The Trinity Forum maintains its reputation for tackling the subjects that really matter.”

Three free Forum registrations will be offered for the most innovative or potentially business-advancing ideas.
