The Airports Council International (ACI) Latin America-Caribbean/World Annual General Assembly, Conference and Exhibition will be held in Panama City from Aug. 31 through Sept. 2.
Hosted by Tocumen International Airport, this year's theme is “Airports: Shaping Our Future.”
Airport leaders from around the globe will gather to discuss charting a course for sustainable growth in the world's airports. Session topics include CEO insights on future challenges and opportunities; catering to the emerging generation of air travelers; improving the passenger journey from curb to boarding; best practices during periods of disruption; and new tools and technologies for improving the customer experience.
An expanded forum and symposium program on safety, the environment, generating commercial revenues, human resources, and new airport developments in China and the Latin America-Caribbean region will kick off the gathering on Aug. 31.
Panama President Juan Carlos Varela will officially open the conference on Sept. 1.
Other notable speakers at the event include Jorge Quijano, CEO of the Panama Canal Authority; and Pedro Heilbron, CEO of Copa Holdings and Copa Airlines.
“It is most fitting that this year’s event takes place in Panama,” Angela Gittens, director general of ACI World, said. “Located at the isthmus that connects the Americas, the country is emblematic of aviation’s power to bring people and businesses together. In cooperation with our host, Tocumen International Airport, ACI has prepared a comprehensive conference schedule designed to give delegates the information they need to meet the future’s challenges and take advantage of its opportunities.”
