CiR And Airline Retail Conference Announce Strategic Partnership

Counter Intelligence Retail (CiR) and The Airline Retail Conference (ARC) have today announced a new strategic research partnership.

The partnership will see CiR and ARC bring new research and regular insight & intelligence to the airline retail sector. CiR Managing Director, Garry Stasiulevicuis, will be sharing key findings from their recent In-Flight Duty & Tax Free Retail study at the forthcoming ARC Europe conference to be held June 2nd and 3rd at Olympia Conference Centre, London, UK.

This year’s ARC Europe conference will address all airline retail opportunities through an exciting 3 stream agenda. Stream one, titled The In Flight Ancillary Revenue Universe, stream two, Pre And Post Flight Retailing and the third stream, The Digital Traveller, will look at topics such as multi-device usage, wearable technology and how sharing data can boost retail sales.

Stasiulevicuis commented; ‘We’re thrilled at the opportunity to partner with ARC and we’re excited about sharing our latest travel retail knowledge and expertise with airline retail’s key stakeholders. The future vision of ARC and the prospect of research being a key component of its activity is an exciting dynamic and one that CiR is proud to be part of’.

Karim Halwagi, Managing Director of the ARC events portfolio commented: "We are delighted to have agreed this strategic research partnership with Counter Intelligence Retail as it highlights the clear synergies between our organisations, whilst allowing us to remain at the cutting edge of this important and lucrative travel retail sector."

"Garry and his team at CiR bring a wealth of experience and insight on the industry and together we will be able to deliver an even higher level of content at ARC Europe 2015 and beyond."
