INTERNATIONAL. Welcome to this relaunch edition of the FAB eZine, a title we have brought back after a protracted, pandemic-driven absence to underline our commitment to travel-related food & beverage.

In this issue we present an extensive rundown on the 2023 Airport FAB + Hospitality Conference & Awards, held in Bangkok, Thailand on 12-13 September.

We were delighted to announce in Bangkok that the 2024 Airport FAB Hospitality + Conference & Awards will be hosted by Ontario International Airport in Southern California on 25-26 June. Please put the dates in your diary now for what promises to be an enthralling return to North America for this premier event.

Also in this extensive issue of the FAB eZine we feature an insight into Lagardère Travel Retail’s ‘pleasure spending’ philosophy and discover how our partner tRetail Labs’ bespoke data can help your brand predict the future. And we meet Areas Iberia CEO Sergio Rodriguez, who outlines why quality is the paramount influence in all his decisions.

In our new regular feature ‘Yes, Chef!’ we meet SSP America’s inspiring Executive Chef & VP Culinary Robert Maluso, who reveals his pride, passion and professionalism – and his favourite airport snack.

Please enjoy this relaunch edition of the FAB eZine. Thank you for your readership and support.

The world’s only event dedicated solely to the airport food & beverage and hospitality sectors will make a welcome return to the US next June. Please contact Head of Events Jeannie Wong at for details.
