The ACI EUROPE Airport Commercial & Retail Conference & Exhibition 2020
The ACI EUROPE Airport Commercial & Retail Conference & Exhibition is established as the meeting place for all who are focused on delivering non-aeronautical revenue success. Each year, the event is attended by senior airport commercial executives, operators and brands, as well as their business partners from retail, food & beverage, travel services, media and other enterprises from around the world.
This year’s event was due to take place in April, hosted by Prague Airport but due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have made the decision to postpone it and co-located it instead with the largest event in the ACI calendar, ACI Airport Exchange in Amsterdam 8-10 December hosted by Royal Schiphol Group.
The event will consist of a two-day working agenda, as well as bringing together 400+ airports, travel retail operators, brands and solution providers for an exhibition and networking social programme. The ACI EUROPE Commercial Forum, the internal working group focusing on the development of non-aeronautical revenue, will meet within the framework of this flagship event.
