Endorsement from attendees of ACI Airport Exchange 2015:


The event has been excellent and informative. I have found the conference sessions very interesting – there was lots of interaction and debate. The exhibition has been great, with a huge amount of companies to see. I have enjoyed the networking opportunities.
Daan Achmad, Director of Human Capital, General Affairs & IT
It has been very interesting to hear from specialist speakers across the customer journey – it is clear that the value chain is becoming more aligned, and we are seeing more cooperation. The format of the conference sessions has worked very well, with a high level of debate and interaction with the audience. ACI Airport Exchange is also clearly very valuable in terms of networking opportunities.
Richard Jewsbury, Divisional Senior Vice President Projects
The conference sessions have been interesting, informative and contained diverse thoughts about the future. Most of the sessions I have attended have been based around security as this is the sector I work in. They have addressed all the things that airports are talking about, from contract management to security infrastructure and technology, and always connecting back to the passenger experience.
Kyile Whyte, Security Infrastructure & Equipment Manager
ACI Airport Exchange has been superbly organised, as always. I found the conference sessions very interesting, and it has been a fantastic forum for both learning and networking
Dr Rainer Schwarz, Managing Director
It has been an amazing event. It has been exceptionally well organised and on such a massive scale – the scale of the event matches the scale of the new Istanbul airport! It has been a wonderful showcase for İGA and Istanbul New Airport, and for delegates to learn about this new mega-hub. The social events and networking opportunities have been great as always, and the entertainment was outstanding. The exhibition was also very impressive, and well set out.
Johan Schölvinck, Vice-President Commercial
ACI Airport Exchange been very good and extremely well attended this year. I went to a couple of conference sessions, and I really enjoyed them. The sessions presented great information, particularly the keynote address with Dr Sani Şener, Member of the ACI Governing Board and CEO TAV Airports Holding and TAV Construction, and Mertol Genç, General Manager İGA Havalimanları. I have also thoroughly enjoyed the networking and social events.
LeeAnn Levesque, President and CEO
It has been a really good event and exhibition. It is the best of cultures between Europe and Asia, and of course with Turkey being one of the key drivers for aviation it is the right place and locations to do it, especially with the new airport. The most important part of the event is the exchange between Europe and Asia – even though aviation is a global business, the exchange between these two regions is very positive.
Pedro Alves, Business Development Manager
I thought the conference sessions were really well organised and informative and the flow of the sessions have been organised very well. There have been lots of very interesting and relevant topics, and I haven’t been to any that are boring. People always question whether it is worth taking the time out of day jobs to attend conferences, and for me it absolutely has been worth it. Valuable connections, and very valuable information.
Tijen Cirig, Director, Airport Solutions
The venue itself is pretty spectacular and there has been some really key players from different sectors in the market showcasing at the exhibition. The conference topics have been really great and relevant, particularly with İGA’s involvement and the focus on the new airport. We have had a very productive few days and people have been very open about their challenges, such as maximising airport infrastructure.
Nick Stevens, Senior Solution Architect
This year has been very, very good. We’ve met many new customers, and we have also been able to learn about and see other new solutions and products in the market. Customers, airports and airlines have tried to learn more about our self-tagging products and we have been very pleased with not just the results, but also the venue, the location and the food. ACI Airport Exchange is very good for not only the external market, but also the internal market.
