The launch edition, which had almost 150 exhibitors, was described as having exceeded all expectations, attracting 1,500 attendees and receiving positive feedback. It was also the largest airport-industry exhibition so far staged in Britain or Ireland.

“As a dynamic free-to-attend show, it will provide invaluable opportunities to meet all the leading vendors and service providers supporting airports on these shores. an education platform and substantial industry networking.”
