Airport Exchange 2013
ACI Airport Exchange is considered the most important event in the air transport industry calendar, with an expected attendance of more than 1,000 aviation business executives from Europe, Asia Pacific and around the world.
Established in 2006, the event alternates between Europe and Asia. It returns to the Gulf region this year, following very successful meetings in Abu Dhabi with ADAC in 2011, and Amsterdam with the Schiphol Group in 2012.
In Amsterdam we introduced for the first time to mass acclaim an event theme of "Airports 2020" which permeated through every part of the show. In Doha we will take that strategy one step further with our new event theme of "Beyond Airports 2020" so conference presenters and exhibitors will not just showcase their latest solutions to the challenges of today, but concepts and launches of brand new offerings ideal for the airport of the future, which will have to be hospitable, efficient, reliable, inspiring and sustainable if they are to succeed in the eyes of airlines, regulators and passengers.
All partners are working to make this event something truly memorable and it promises to offer participants a conference, exhibition and social programme line up unlike anything seen before at an air-transport industry event.
Visit Airport Exchange 2013's exhibition showing all the very latest products, equipment and services in the sector. Attendance to this area only is free of charge.
Conferences will focus on the following areas: Security & Border Control, Airport Operations, Airport Development, and IT, Facilitation & Customer Service Conference.
We have a wide range of sponsorship packages still available including: Lanyards, Conference facilities, Registration and more.
Bernardo Gogna, Project Director of the NDIA Steering Committee, has confirmed his participation at ACI Airport Exchange on Tuesday 12 November. He will deliver a presentation entitled ‘Lessons learned from the operational readiness and airport transition phase. The vision for HIA and delivering the facilities.’
ACI Airport Exchange 2013 delegates are being offered a series of tours of the brand new US$15.5 billion Hamad International Airport. Befitting the theme of this year’s ACI Airport Exchange – ‘Beyond Airports 2020′ – seven airport tours have been customised for delegates to view and experience the state-of-the-art airport, which will soon become the international five-star gateway to Qatar and the rest of the world. There will be a general tour, plus tours focusing on technology, security, baggage handling, the retail and passenger experience, operations airside and operations landside.
In addition to the 50+ exhibitors, visitors to the exhibition at ACI Airport Exchange 2013 will also benefit from a series of free-to-attend seminars, in which leading suppliers will outline their vision of ‘Beyond Airports 2020′, covering four key areas: Security, IT and Systems, Baggage Advancements, and Airport Development.
