About Airport Cities World Conference and Exhibition (ACE)
Historically, airports were perceived as simple transportation hubs where planes and people depart and arrive. Today, modern 21st century airports have become much more, evolving into key nodes in global production and enterprise systems offering them speed, agility and connectivity. They are also powerful engines of local economic development, attracting aviation-linked businesses of all types to their environs.
The next edition of ACE 2014 will be held on 31 March-2 April 2014 hosted by MAHB at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Malaysia. The event is expected to attract over 110 airport operators from 45 countries.
