Second Annual ACI conference on Investing in Airports

Second Annual ACI conference on Investing in Airports
Amolrada Thamrongvoraporn

The second annual ACI Investing in Airports conference, organized by ACI in cooperation with ICAO and the International Transport Forum (ITF) at the OECD, will feature sessions and panel discussions on topics related to economic regulation, financing frameworks and tools to modernize infrastructure and service at the world’s airports with the end goal of meeting future demand.

“Aviation and specifically airports’ role within the sector—is continually evolving. Airports can no longer be viewed simply as pieces of infrastructure where planes land and take off; they have increasingly become complex businesses in their own right that in many cases compete with each other to be the gateway to cities, regions and even entire continents. More than anything, the Investing in Airports conference, jointly organized by ACI, ICAO and the ITF at the OECD, is about fostering the right environment for investment in airports and ensuring that regulation evolves in step with the industry for a sustainable future with the ability to accommodate growth in the demand for air service.” – Angela Gittens, Director General, ACI World
