Endorsement from attendees of ACI Airport Exchange 2015:

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

Rostock Airport

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

Emirates Airline

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

Sydney Airport

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

SITA

My time here has given me a better understanding about Turkish Airlines, and the new airport, which are areas that I am particularly interested in given that we provide construction and operation expertise to İGA, and it has provided some very valuable social opportunities.
