The DFNI-Frontier Asia Pacific Awards took place tonight (14 May) at the MBS Convention & Expo Centre in Singapore.

The awards, which recognised the leading players in travel retail’s most lucrative region, took place alongside this week’s TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition & Conference and a string number of conference delegates turned out for the awards.

An expert panel of judges – featuring Bulgari’s Canny Kwok, Starboard Cruise Services’ Derek Wong, Lagardère Travel Retail’s Eudes Fabre, Ever Rich’s Michelle Chiang, Changi Airport Group’s Lim Peck Hoon and Wellington’s Sarah Lynch – assessed all entries and the best entries were recognised at tonight’s awards ceremony.

Tonight’s ceremony follows similar regional events for the American and EMEA regions. While entries are now open for the global Frontier Awards, taking place in Cannes in October.
