I think as forums for discussion each of the conferences has been very interesting – particularly the discussion of innovation at security borders has been very good. The level of technology and the innovation here is quite excellent, and as a platform to meet people from all over the industry it’s a very important event.

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.
