As well as the main competition there will be a new award, Master ISPY, for crew who have previously attended the event and are now ready to take on an inflight retail coaching role.

TRT CEO Christine Martin stated: “It is important for us to give the crew a chance to progress and develop their skills in order to have an even greater influence on sales for their airline. With regard to offering our sponsors unrivalled value for money, we guarantee that there will be no more than four companies exhibiting from each product category and that every sponsor will see every airline delegation over the two-day tradeshow.

“We protect the investment of those who invest is us by not allowing suppliers to attend in any capacity other than that of a sponsor. We have especially high expectations for the new interactive management conference, which we are sure is going to be a huge success,” she added.
