I shared examples of airports like Gatwick, where travelers can scan QR codes at a Tesco-powered display and get groceries delivered to their home when they returned. I also emphasized the need for airport retailers to stock exclusive products to the region. For example, airports in Africa can stock Milart Designer Bead jewelry, rather than just run-of-the-mill stuff. And finally, my advice was not to get bedazzled by by the slew of initiatives they may see in the retail world, and to maintain focus.
