“Brussels Airport is particularly proud of welcoming in 2018 the ACI World Annual Congress and the ACI Europe Annual Congress, General Assembly & Exhibition at the heart of the European capital. Brussels is known around the globe as the Capital of Europe and for being home to the European institutions, the NATO and so many international organisations, companies and NGO’s. The event will be an unique opportunity for the aviation industry to share experiences, to develop networks and to expand business.
It is also a great honour for our country to host this Congress with its 800 participants who will experience the famous Belgian hospitality and our rich cultural and artistic diversity.”

I have really enjoyed this year’s ACI EUROPE Annual Congress. It has been good to learn about current issues in our industry, including the aims of airport investors and the latest projects. I feel the right issues are being addressed in the conference sessions.
