Registrations for the annual conference, exhibitions and awards dinner of the Airport Operators Association (AOA) have opened. The gathering is on 30-31 October at London's Royal Lancaster Hotel, not the Paddington Metropole.
Among speakers confirmed are ACI Europe director-general Olivier Jankovec, AGS Airports CEO Amanda McMillan, Cardiff Airport CEO Debra Barber and London City Airport CEO Declan Collier in what what will be one of his final public appearances before leaving the post..
On the airline front are Airlines for America president and CEO Nicholas E. Calio, Flybe CEO Christine Ourmières-Widener and International Airline Group CEO Willie Walsh.
The agenda will be published shortly and is expected to include discussions on the forthcoming Aviation Strategy, the importance of airspace modernisation and how tourism and aviation can work together to ensure the Industrial Strategy supports the whole travel sector.
Another hot topic is likely to be the impact of Brexit on the industry, with special emphasis on aviation safety regulation, borders and the right of UK airlines to fly to EU destinations.
A feature of the conference will be the premiere of Airport Matters 2017, a documentary from ITN Productions showcasing the aviation industry. AOA partnered the ITN team to produce the programme.
