The symposium will build on the success of the first event in 2011, which attracted over 500 delegates, including a number of chief executives, and was billed as a success by 86 per cent of the attendees.
The IATA World Passenger Symposium is a unique event.
It is the only event that brings the entire passenger value chain together – from airlines to government representatives – to look at common solutions to industry challenges.
Those challenges are numerous.
They include seizing the opportunity that ancillary revenues represent; understanding new distribution models; and defining a new airport experience that empowers the passenger through self-managed travel.
These challenges affect every part of the value chain.
This year the event will take place at Jumeirah Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi, from October 16th-18th.
