Airport Industry Leaders To Meet On The Gold Coast In November 2014

The Asia Pacific region’s pre‐eminent airports and aviation industry conference and exhibition will be held on the Gold Coast between 23 and 27 November 2014.

More than 600 delegates are expected to attend the four‐day Australian Airports Association (AAA) National Conference which will feature more than 90 speakers and 40 industry exhibitors at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The conference program released this week includes a range of speakers drawn from senior leadership roles across industry and government, covering all aspects of airport operations and management ranging from the technical aspects of maintaining runway pavements and wildlife
hazard reduction, through to the future of aviation security and the latest international trends in airport design and passenger experience.

The conference will include presentations on the latest developments at Australia’s major international and regional airports.

A highlight of the conference is the AAA National Airport Industry Awards which acknowledge those organisations and individuals achieving excellence within Australia’s airport industry. The awards are made in a variety of categories, from small rural aerodromes through to capital city airports. There is recognition for individual excellence, corporate projects and airport safety. Nominations for the awards are now open.

Caroline Wilkie, CEO of the AAA, said the national conference is a valuable opportunity for people working in aviation and airports to stay abreast of the latest trends and opportunities in the industry.

‘The conference attracts participants from airports and related businesses across Australia, and highlights the importance of our airports as vital national infrastructure that help to keep Australians connected with each other and the rest of the world through aviation,’ Ms Wilkie said.
