ACI Airport Exchange 2015

The €10.2 billion Istanbul New Airport phase 1 will be completed before the end of 2017. The İGA-hosted ACI Airport Exchange 2015 will be the first major international event focused around the game-changing Istanbul New Airport mega-hub.

The İGA-hosted ACI Airport Exchange 2015 will take place on 8-10 December at the prestigious new Istanbul Congress Center in the heart of downtown Istanbul. The exhibition is expected to attract well in excess of 100 exhibitors, while up to 2,500 delegates and visitors are forecast to visit. In addition to the regular five ACI Airport Exchange conferences an 'Istanbul New Airport Development Conference', dedicated to the €10.2 billion new airport, will be combined with the first-ever large-scale guided visits to the construction site. As the first major international event focused around this game-changing mega-hub, the İGA-hosted ACI Airport Exchange 2015 is likely to draw significant global air transport industry interest.
