AOE was named "Technology Innovator of the Year" at TFWA Conference 2017 in Cannes. The technology provider was awarded by the Frontiere Magazine for its development of the OM³ Suite, which connects airport retail, E-Commerce and airport services in one innovative solution. OM³ contributes an essential part to airport digitalization and increase of non-aviation revenue streams.


The Technology Innovator of the Year Award was presented at Frontier Awards by Frontier Magazine, one of the most renowned magazines in the travel retail industry. The award ceremony took place at TFWA World Exhibition & Conference in Cannes, France, one of the leading global travel retail events. The Tax Free World Association (TFWA) is the world's biggest duty free and travel retail association. 

The Frontier Award "Technology Innovator of the Year" is the next award for the OM³ Suite after Best Omnichannel Experience Award and Spirit of Excellence Award at Imagine Conference in Las Vegas.

OM³ Suite: Innovative Omnichannel Suite for Airports

AOEs OM³ Suite is an innovative platform consisting of a unique, modular toolset of pre-integrated Omnichannel functionalities, services and infrastructures. This allows a tailor-made selection of functionalities according to airport-specific business requirements. The unique solution provides passengers with a variety of options for planning their travels and during the journey itself, online and offline shopping at the airport and access to airport services. Passengers can get information about their products and make purchases before they travel or during breaks and waiting times. As a core element of the solution, a variety of Airport and E-Commerce systems can be integrated into the OM³ Suite.

The first roll-out of the OM³ Suite began in 2016 at Frankfurt Airport. In 2017 the OM³ integration at Auckland Airport was announced. Negotiations with other major international airports on the integration of the OM³ Suite are underway, the announcement of the next OM³ integration is scheduled in the next weeks.
