Endorsement from attendees of ACI Airport Exchange 2017:

SITA
Thales
Swedavia
KONE Elevators and Escalators
Oman Airports
One Works

All of the conferences were very interesting and the timings were perfect – it was just the right amount of time for each speaker and it was very engaging. The topics were also very relevant. Overall, I attended most of the sessions and I really liked them; we found very new concepts and new technologies.

Dalia Elbaltaji, Account Manager, SITA, and Laike Tafesse, Director Solution Design, Airport Solution Line - SITA

I attended the Security & Crisis Management Summit which was focused on inside threats and all of the speakers that I heard were focusing on the matter and were giving very nice suggestions for the future. The level was very high and met my expectations for sure.

Massimo Bonechi, Defence Security & Transportation Direction - Thales

The whole organisation behind the event was great and I particularly enjoyed the fact that there were different sessions of the conference. It is interesting because sometimes you tend to think that something might not be of your core interest but it turns out to be. And also, I really enjoyed the networking and in general coming together with the people from the industry.

Peder Beausang, Corporate Crisis Manager, Corporate Security and Safety - Swedavia

Discussions in the conference sessions have been very engaging, with a lot of interaction between the speakers and the audience. The networking has been excellent – I am pleased with the good contacts we have made both regionally and internationally.

Tuukka Pakkala, Head of Global Escalator Offering - KONE Elevators and Escalators

It has been a very big event, with lots of exhibitors and a very high standard of organisation. Overall, I am amazed at the quality of ACI Airport Exchange.

Mohamed Al Husaini, CEO Office Manager - Oman Airports

ACI Airport Exchange has been excellent. It has been very well attended, the conference sessions have been interesting, and there has been a good level of engagement between participants.
