SPAIN/INTERNATIONAL. Leading travel services group Areas has been named a platinum partner for the 2022 Airport Food & Beverage Conference & Awards, to be held virtually September 12-13 (before making a full in-person return in mid-2023).

The F&B to retail specialist sponsors the “People” pillar, one of the four pillars around which the program is based: People, Planet, Partnership and Progress. Other sponsors will be announced in the coming days.

Montse Adan, Chief Corporate Officer of Areas, said: “Our commitment to people is a key pillar of our ESG strategy. We are therefore pleased to once again partner with the annual FAB conference, this time supporting the People Section.

“Social responsibility at Areas means a commitment to inclusive economic growth. We take care of our employees and constantly strive to ensure Areas is a great place to work, while having a positive impact on our environment and the wider community.

“Learning, development, diversity, inclusion, health and well-being initiatives are at the heart of our People & Culture strategy.”

Areas is the world’s third-largest player in the travel F&B market, serving around 350 million travelers a year across 1,900 restaurants and stores in ten countries.

FAB 2022 will be anchored by an extensive Knowledge Hub programme, offering a strong line-up of thought leaders from across the Channel.

As with the Virtual Travel Retail Expo 2021, it will be complemented by the people-focused FAB Superstars Awards.

The awards, introduced in 2021, will once again shine a light on the thousands of heroes and heroines indoors and behind the scenes who have helped keep the food and beverage community within our industry throughout the challenges of Last year.

In addition, this year’s awards include an important new category, the FAB ESG Awards, which have been introduced to celebrate, recognize and reward people and initiatives that have made a positive impact in the areas of environmental, social and governance (ESG).
