Bringing together senior level executives from airports, travel retail operators, retailers and brands, who are focused on delivering non-aeronautical revenue

  • Airports are taking an increasingly customer-centric approach

    The rising cost of finance for airports and minimal new airline capacity entering the market has resulted in a growing emphasis on non-aeronautical revenues.

  • Making customer service a key strategic priority

    Research shows that a longer dwell time for passengers, leads to an increased probability of passenger spend, particularly if offered greater choice.

  • A contented traveller is more likely to spend at the airport

    A strong focus on smooth passenger processing and creating a stress free airport experience, will increase the probability of impulse purchases and technology is crucial to this process.
