La Frontera Hoy 2019 – Porto Alegre, Brazil

Nathalie travelled to Porto Alegre, Brazil to attend the La Frontera Hoy, an event by ASUTIL and CEFSU during 4th – 6th November on the subject of Border Duty Free Shops. Following legal changes in Brazil, new border duty free opportunities have opened up with the possibility of opening duty free stores in 30 cities on bordering countries – importantly, Brazil has a border with all South American countries except Chile.

The agenda for La Frontera Hoy included expert panelists in regional economy, current legislation and logistics, plus retail operators sharing their experience. Nathalie attended to learn more about the region, potential opportunities and to attend to business, whilst making the most of the networking time to meet with clients, industry colleagues and friends, both old and new.
