18-20 June 2018 // Brussels, Belgium Square Brussels Meeting Centre
Welcome to Brussels
ACI EUROPE, ACI World and our 2018 host Brussels Airport welcome you to beautiful Belgium for three days of conferences, an exhibition and networking, all focussed on the growth and enhancement of our industry.
WELCOME TO PARIS!
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It is a great pleasure for Groupe ADP to host the 27th ACI EUROPE General Assembly, Congress and Exhibition in Paris in June, bringing together air transport players from across Europe and North America, just a few days before the Paris Air Forum and the International Paris Air Show at Le Bourget.
The association celebrated its 25th anniversary a few months ago. Since its launch in 1991, ACI EUROPE has established itself as a unique source of technical and legal expertise for our industry and an exceptional facilitator in the exchange of knowledge and influence, that we must continue to develop; its Congress has become a major annual event, a gathering where ideas, knowledge and best practices from across all areas of our industry are shared, and new business relationships forged.
Following last year's Congress in Athens, we have been working hard, doing our utmost to ensure the continued success of this event. This year's theme "AIRPORT LEADERSHIP IN CHANGE" will address many of the issues raised by the geopolitical, technical and economic upheavals in Europe and around the world that our community has been confronted with in recent times and that we continue to face both today and in the future.
I call on all ACI EUROPE members to attend the Congress whether as a delegate, sponsor or exhibitor, in order to benefit from the myriad networking and learning opportunities on offer. This annual event plays a crucial role in ensuring that all of us continue to build a pragmatic and collective approach to the issues facing our industry. I am confident that the inspiration provided by this forum will enable us to find the right responses to the challenges ahead!
It will, of course, afford all of us the opportunity to come together, debate and reflect on how our airports can anticipate and adapt to an ever-changing environment.
I look forward to welcoming you personally to Paris on 12th June for this unmissable three-day event!
