Frontier Award 2022

Frontier Awards 2022 Finalists Revealed!

The nominees for this year’s Frontier Awards have been announced ahead of the ceremony which will take place live in Cannes

The finalists for the 2022 Frontier Awards have been announced.

The Frontier Awards will be presented live at a gala event in Cannes on 5 October. More than 150 entries from around the world were submitted for this year’s event, which will once again celebrate the best of innovation and excellence in the travel retail industry.

Our expert panel of independent judges came together virtually last week to discuss the finalists and the winners.

DFNI-Frontier Editor Kapila Ireland said: “Every year the Frontier Awards are an opportunity to recognise the very best the travel retail industry has to offer and this year has been no exception. Our judging panel was very impressed by the quality of entries and it is a testament to the excellent work done in the industry in the past year that choosing the winners proved incredibly difficult in some cases.

“Being shortlisted for a Frontier Award is an achievement in itself and I look forward to seeing you all on the night in Cannes.”
