Today, 27 March 2023, Italian Signature Wines Academy is pleased to announce its joining the Italian Travel Retail Association (ATRI).
For years, ISWA and ATRI have shared one common goal: to create a meeting point between made-in-Italy products and international travellers.
ATRI is a trade association that unites many Italian Travel Retail companies. It is a voluntary, non-profit association of production, trade, and service companies operating in airports, railways, motorways, aircraft, ships, and merchant ports.
Stefano Gardini – President of ATRI, said: “I am delighted to welcome ISWA and its network of international brands into our association because together we represent the union of two international vocations and lay the foundations to bring together the supply and demand of excellent Italian products in the international transport infrastructure. Twenty-five per cent of the world turnover in travel retail pertains to the wine and spirit segment: ISWA’s membership of our association will strengthen the ability of all members to develop this segment even further.”
Marilisa Allegrini – President of ISWA, added, “I am confident in the synergies that will be created thanks to our membership of ATRI and contact with other members, based on the sharing of objectives such as the vocation for hospitality combined with the promotion of territorial products recognised worldwide. Retail and hospitality are, in fact, two strengths that unite our work. This moment of strong recovery in travel seemed the right one for us to join ATRI.”
With ISWA joining as a new member, the number of companies and associations that are part of the ATRI network and share an interest in development and innovation in travel retail rises to 56.
