THE KEYNOTE ARENA

Following on from the success of last year's event in Amsterdam, this year we will again set aside a large room, the Keynote Arena, at Airport Exchange where many of the air-transport sectors most influential figures will deliver keynote addresses to all conference delegates simultaneously on key industry issues, as well as the latest developments and strategies of their businesses. Delegates from all conferences will come together for this session and we expect an audience of more than 2,000 from Europe and Asia and around the world in Doha.

Keynote Arena

Sessions to be covered include:

  • Beyond 2020 intensive competition will mean only exceptional service and quality will differentiate the world's greatest airlines and hubs. How will Qatar Airways and Hamad International Airport rise to the challenge?
  • Inspiration from the NGO behind the world's first intercontinental flight in a solar-powered plane.
  • The Opposite Direction – An aviation leaders special discussion
    The emergence of competitive major airlines and hubs has been a highly positive development for the Middle East, providing the gateways for modern inbound tourism, and creating vast choice for global travellers. Discussion with leaders from the region, and beyond, will explain how will this play out beyond 2020.
