The Best Airport Awards 2016 ceremony will also include the presentation of the first Accessible Airport Award, in association with European Disability Forum.
Airports are a crucial part of the travel chain for all passengers, including passengers with disabilities. The level of accessibility of the airport as well as the range and the quality of the assistance services offered make a huge difference to the travel experience, both for experienced and inexperienced travellers.
The Accessible Airport Award is an opportunity to showcase good practice examples and get recognition for the work that has already been done in certain airports, while encouraging other airports to do the same. It is also useful to raise awareness of problems that passengers with disabilities still face regularly when travelling and which sometimes can be easily solved.
It is my first time attending the ACI EUROPE Annual Assembly and I have been really impressed with the honest, open discussions that have taken place during the conference.
Every year, the ACI EUROPE Annual Assembly gets better and better. The conference has covered very interesting topics and has had an excellent attendance – it has been busier than ever.
The exhibition has been very busy – we have had the opportunity to engage with many airport CEOs, and it has been great to make those contacts. You definitely meet the right people at this event.
The event has been perfect. The participants in the conference have been excellent, and the panel discussions have been very informative.
I attend this event every year and would recommend all airport leaders to attend – in our industry, it is essential.
It was especially good to see the participation of the EU Transport Commissioner, which really shows what an important event this is.
The panel discussions and presentations in the conference have been fascinating, and have really addressed the hot topics – such as the forthcoming Aviation Package and Open Skies.
The ACI EUROPE events are the best in the industry. You definitely meet the right people at this event. The networking opportunities and social events have also been first-class.
I always attend the ACI EUROPE Annual Congress – it is THE event for airport CEOs to come to. If you come to this event, you don’t need to go to any others.
The whole event has gone very well. I have enjoyed the conference sessions, and the networking opportunities have also been excellent.
