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.

here has been a useful mixture of panel discussions and presentations, and a good level of interaction with the audience. The presentation by Brussels Airport CEO Arnaud Feist was absolutely fantastic. I have found the event very busy, and have enjoyed the networking opportunities, including the fabulous Welcome Reception and Gala Dinner.

The conference has effectively condensed the macro trends of the industry, which is very valuable. It is my first time attending the ACI EUROPE Annual Congress. I have been impressed by the level of interaction and the opportunities for discussion and consideration of the most important issues affecting our industry.
