Aviation Sector Leaders to Convene in Ottawa for Airports Canada 2011 Conference & Exhibition

Registration now open for airports sector conference April 19-21st

OTTAWA, Feb. 23 /CNW/ - The Canadian Airports Council today advised that registration is open for the Airports Canada 2011 Conference & Exhibition April 19-21st in Ottawa.

Organized in conjunction with Washington-based Airports Council International-North America, Airports Canada is the largest Canadian content conference for senior airport executives, vendors and government officials from around North America and the world.

"As Canada's economy steered out of the recent recession, traffic at many Canadian airports in 2010 returned to record levels," said CAC Chairman and Interim President Bill Restall.  "While the skies are clearer, many challenges remain.  Canadian airports increasingly find themselves competing with a lower cost structure across the border while continued economic malaise impacts many of Canada's biggest partners for trade and tourism.  Airports Canada 2011 is an opportunity for airport leaders to reflect on these challenges and prepare for the two years ahead."

Themed "Piloting through Clearer Skies," Airports Canada 2011 will feature the following panels and sessions:

  • Piloting through Clearer Skies: Putting the Canadian Footing into Global Context
  • Canada's Tourism Future in a World of Emerging Tourist Markets
  • Improving the Passenger Experience
  • Canada's Aviation Competitiveness
  • Leadership, Culture and Canada's Labour Pool
  • Making it Work: Working with our Partner Agencies and Service Providers

Sponsorship opportunities are available for organizations involved in the airports sector.  Information on sponsorships and registration are available on the CAC (www.cacairports.ca/english/meetings_events) and ACI Web sites (www.aci-na.org/conferences)

Now held only every two years, Airports Canada is attended by over 200 top airport executives, and senior executives/officials from air carriers, retail/service partners and government.
