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
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.
