ACI Airport Exchange is considered the most important event in the air transport industry calendar, with an expected attendance of more than 2,000 aviation business executives from Europe, Asia Pacific and around the world.
Established in 2006, the event alternates between Europe and Asia. It returns to the Gulf region this year, following very successful meetings in Abu Dhabi with ADAC in 2011, and Amsterdam with the Schiphol Group in 2012.
In Amsterdam we introduced for the first time to mass acclaim an event theme of "Airports 2020" which permeated through every part of the show. In Doha we will take that strategy one step further with our new event theme of "Beyond Airports 2020" so conference presenters and exhibitors will not just showcase their latest solutions to the challenges of today, but concepts and launches of brand new offerings ideal for the airport of the future, which will have to be hospitable, efficient, reliable, inspiring and sustainable if they are to succeed in the eyes of airlines, regulators and passengers.
All partners are working to make this event something truly memorable and it promises to offer participants a conference, exhibition and social programme line up unlike anything seen before at an air-transport industry event.
