Approach

We’re committed to finding solutions that create and expand the opportunities for each of our Client Partners by empowering them with information, knowledge and the tools necessary to participate successfully in Travel Retail.

We work closely with each partner to develop specific geo-targeted strategies which achieve sustained growth and performance within airports by focusing on:

  • Image/Presence – consumers engage with those brands that connect with them through all senses.
  • ROI – secure the appropriate retail density to maximize performance.
  • Customer Experience – become customer centric and adapt to the consumer profile at each airport.

TRP develops strategies to achieve long-term presence in the industry; provides a clear understanding of key barriers; and identifies tactical solutions to address each barrier.
