A flagship conference stream entirely dedicated to the €10.2 billion Istanbul New Airport project, featuring key figures from the leadership, design and procurement teams delivering this game-changing mega hub.
Lively discussion and case studies, focussed on pioneering efforts to delight airport passengers and smooth their journey through the terminal.
Conference theme: "Future-proofing your airport: In an era when a single trip can result in a cascade of communications on multiple platforms from airlines, airport, retail partners, etc. In what ways can meaningful and valuable engagement with passengers still be achieved?"
Address title: “What are the global competitive implications of combining the world’s biggest airport with ‘the largest airline on Earth’? Istanbul New Airport is also the first entirely tailor-made mega-hub – so will it also be a mega-carrier’s dream?”

“We’re taking off towards our highest dream. This year İGA is welcoming ACI and the global air transportation industry to Istanbul, to showcase to the world the vision and progress we have made in the development of our game-changing mega-hub project; Istanbul New Airport. This is the industry’s exclusive chance to preview the most important new hub between New York and Shanghai before the rest of the world arrives”
“Just as Istanbul New Airport is one of the foremost hub projects in the world, the İGA–hosted ACI Airport Exchange, jointly organised by ACI EUROPE and ACI Asia-Pacific, will be one of the largest ACI events ever staged, and a great bridge of airport learning between East and West.”
Olivier Jankovec, Director General, ACI EUROPE
Patti Chau, Regional Director, ACI Asia-Pacific
“The Unifree Dutyfree contract at Istanbul New Airport is the greatest single success in the company’s history and will represent a totally new dimension in retail space, enabling implementation of unique, pioneering concepts. Equally we see ACI Airport Exchange, and The Istanbul New Airport Development Conference, as a superb shop window for the world’s airports community to come together for the very first time to learn about the central significance of this mega hub on the world stage.”
Claus Heinemann, Co-owner Gebr. Heinemann and Co-Owner and Board Member of Unifree Dutyfree.
Primary Event Sponsor: ACI Airport Exchange, and The Istanbul New Airport Development Conference
THE ACI AIRPORT EXCHANGE 2015 EXHIBITION WILL BRING TOGETHER THE AIRPORT INDUSTRY’S LEADING SUPPLIERS IN ONE VENUE
ACI Airport Exchange is renowned for delivering the most diverse exhibition in the airport sector, showcasing the very latest products, services and solutions in the airport market, and uniquely securing visitors from all levels of airport and airline management from around the world.
150+ exhibitors showcasing next-generation solutions for airports
ACI Airport Exchange – the previous host airports:
Since its launch in 2006 ACI Airport Exchange has established itself as the leading event in the airport development and operations calendar. ACI Airport Exchange is now ACI’s largest global event and, since 2011 has been jointly staged by ACI EUROPE and ACI Asia-Pacific.
The event is very well organised. There has been a good mix of conference topics, and I have appreciated that the conference has addressed emerging topics such as climate change. There have been good speakers, interesting topics, and good debate.
Head of Environment Unit
I like the size of the exhibition and have spoken to many of the suppliers. I have also enjoyed the focus of the conference presentations and the working sessions. There has been a lot of interaction and a good level of debate. The event is definitely addressing the right issues.
Thomas Hoff Andersson
Director Airport Optimisation
I have appreciated all of the conference presentations – they have been very interesting. There have been a lot of questions and a good level of debate in each session. ACI Airport Exchange is also very useful for networking – I have met many new contacts. It is good to be able to interact and share experiences at this event, in order to improve together. The spirit of the event is very nice.
It’s always good to be able to have that exchange of information and to network – because everybody does things differently. We all have airports and share common problems and it's great to hear peoples’ experiences, what works and doesn’t work, what people have tried and what’s coming down the line.
Hamad International Airport
There is a lot to be learned at this event, and I have taken from Airport Exchange confirmation of many of the ideas that we have had in Norway. The IT & Facilitation conference in particular has been very good.
Jon Henrik Thorshaug
Head of Market and Business Development
All the aspects of aviation were covered – whatever area of aviation you are in this is the place to be. This is my first time attending Airport Exchange, and it will definitely not be my last. The conference has been very interesting, with a wide variety of exciting topics.
