Testimonials

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.

Andrew Watt

Head of Environment Unit

Eurocontrol

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

Copenhagen Airports

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.

Franck Mereyde

Managing Director

Paris-Orly Airport

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.

Michael McElvaney

VP Operations

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

Avinor

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.
