Global Airport Leaders’ Forum

Technology is changing fast and passengers are demanding the very best connectivity, a seamless journey and more entertainment than ever before. Airport and Airlines have no choice but to keep ahead and have the technologies in place behind the scenes of airport operations, security and air traffic control to support a new age of consumer.

The future passenger experience will be at the core of this year’s Global Airport Leaders’ Forum.

New in 2020, Airport Show Hybrid+ introduces a new digital element to the live, face-to-face event that gives those unable to attend the event in October the opportunity to remotely participate, learn and engage through our new digital platform.

Conferences will take place at the Live Event with appropriate Health and Wellness protocols in place, will be ‘invite only’ and have social distance and capacity restrictions.

All Conferences will be streamed in real time through the Airport Show Hybrid+ digital platform. 

Leading Conferences

This year we have added two new conferences: Airport Passengers’ Experience Conference on day 2 and Future Ground Handling Summit on day 3.

The dedicated ATC Conference will take place on day 1.

Live Streaming

Those who are attending remotely can watch the Conferences in real time through the Airport Show Hybrid+ digital platform as well as simultaneously streamed on our social media platforms and YouTube.

Visitors can participate in live online Q&A.


Conferences will be available to watch after the event via the digital platform (15 days after the event) and then later on the Content Hub on the website.
