The annual congress of the Association of French-speaking Airports Associated with Airport Council International (ALFA-ACI) will be held from 27 to 30 May 2015 at the Starling Hotel in Geneva. This major event is being held at the invitation of Genève Aéroport, which is also providing the practical organization of the event, with the assistance of the Symporg agency.
Air transport is undergoing profound technological change, which is having a significant impact on passenger behaviour and expectations. Moreover, the underlying trends in tourism, transportation, information sharing, and collaborative savings are helping to change the role of airports. This dynamic justifies structuring the 2015 ALFA-ACI Congress around the following topic:
Some 500 professional participants are expected to attend the annual congress. Various topics related to this theme will be discussed during a variety of working meetings, while presentations and round tables will be hosted by air transport VIPs and experts.
Genève Aéroport is delighted to be arranging and taking part in this event. Social activities arranged on the sidelines of the working meetings will provide an opportunity for exchanges of information with colleagues from other airports and partners.
Beyond the specific topics addressed during these three days, Genève Aéroport management's involvement and participation will help to give a dynamic and positive image of the region and should encourage participants from other parts of the world to return for leisure stays.
*ALFA-ACI is an affinity group linking French-speaking airports of all sizes, and was established in 1991. The main objective of the association is to propose common positions on the management, operation and promotion of French-speaking airports, AND also to exchange information on the major topics that shape the evolution of their business and are assets for the future.
ALFA-ACI brings together nearly 90 airport operators from some fifteen countries on four continents, and also associate members, companies conducting a significant part of their business on airports or engaging in specific airport occupations.
ALFA-ACI has thematic commissions, cross-functional working groups, and an extranet site for information exchange with more than 1,200 connected members.
