Airports expo taking off

More than 200 exhibitors and some 2,000 visitors are expected at this year’s British-Irish Airports Expo, which returns to the Birmingham NEC on 7-8 June to showcase all aspects of the industry.

With almost 150 exhibitors, last year’s inaugural event was hailed as the largest airport industry exhibition staged in Britain or Ireland and drew industry suppliers and service providers of all sizes to talk about their latest solutions and concepts.

This year’s show, hosted by Birmingham Airport, has moved to a significantly larger hall, while the vehicle display area will also increase in size and move inside the venue to show off the latest airport vehicles on the market whatever the weather.

The event will also feature a large amphitheatre-style conference stage within the exhibition, where British-Irish airport CEOs, operations directors and senior departmental specialists will present development and capital expenditure plans.

The 2017 expo will be officially opened by Heathrow chairman and former London 2012 Olympics CEO Lord Deighton. The annual general meeting of RABA – the 38-airport-member Regional and Business Airports Group – will also take place during the gathering.
