Busy agenda for airports Expo

Plans are moving ahead and potential delegates being urged to save the date for the 2019 British-Irish Airports Expo, hosted by Heathrow and being held at Olympia, London, on 11 and 12 June.

The event is billed as the biggest UK and Irish annual procurement exhibition and airports conference, providing one of Europe’s main industry platforms for the airport community to gather, share experiences and do business.

Organisers say the expo provides “a unique regional focus” for airports and airlines, contractors, consultants and integrators to get together and learn how terminals and airside operations can deliver the on-going demand on capacity and create greater passenger experiences.

Last year’s expo was the largest of its kind to date, with more than 150 exhibitors, five conferences, 60-plus speakers and a total attendance of 2,369 drawn from more than 100 UK and Irish airports and key airport industry stakeholders.

Conference sessions this year are expected to cover operations, ATC, security, PRM (passenger with restricted mobility) and accessibility, ground services, sustainability, design and planning, technology, procurement and airport connectivity.

Day 2 will have a particular emphasis on exporting and the Regional and Business Airports (RABA) Group AGM will also be hosted at the show.
