Speakers are due to be announced next month for various business sessions due to take place at the 2017 Global AirRail Conference and Awards event being held in Brussels on 13-14 November.
Organised annually by the UK-based Global AirRail Alliance, the event brings airports, rail operators, airlines, planners and suppliers to one central location for the sharing of ideas and development of partnerships.
The alliance works with industry to collect information about passenger behaviour, analyse and discuss business trends and suggest solutions that can improve the customer experience.
A spokesman explained: “How many times have people joined a conference only to reach for their phones within the first three minutes of a presentation? We avoid that by designing a programme that is dynamic and interactive.
“Our presentations are 15min long and zero in on challenges and opportunities to ways to connect air with rail and improve public and private transport access to airports around the world.”
Latest developments likely to come up for discussion include half-year results for the Hong Kong Airport Express Line showing 8m passengers carried so far this year with average daily ridership at 44,200, and plans in New Zealand for a light rail link to Auckland Airport.
