Buyers from a range of companies based at the airport have already confirmed attendance including:

  • Aelia
  • easyJet
  • Enterprise Rent-a-car

With almost 10m passengers passing through in 2011 and employing more than 8,000 people, the airport is a major economic driver for the region.  There are over 100 companies based at the airport each with its own complex supply chain. www.londonlutonmeetthebuyer.com
