Qatar honours airport summit delegates
Doha, November 13, 2013
Doha International Airport hosted a dinner event last night at the Grand Hyatt, Doha, for delegates of 2013 ACI Airport Exchange, a leading air transport event for aviation business executives, being held from November 11 to 13.
The event was set outdoors, where guests were treated to a sumptuous dinner while they enjoyed spectacular live entertainment.
Patrick Muller, executive vice president of Doha International Airport, opened the evening by commending this year’s speakers for the innovative and progressive insight shared during the conference.
Tan Sri Bashir Ahmad Abdul Majid, managing director of Malaysia Airports Holding Berhad and president of ACI Asia Pacific, and Arnaud Feist, CEO of Brussels Airport Company and president of ACI Europe, also spoke at the event and praised Qatar’s aviation development.
Muller concluded the evening by presenting a memento to Patrick Collard, chief of staff of the chairman and CEO of Aeroports De Paris, for the role as hosts of next year’s Airport Exchange conference and exhibition.
Established in 2006, Airport Exchange has established itself as ACI's largest industry meeting, annually alternating between Europe and Asia.
It returns to the Gulf region this year, following meetings in Abu Dhabi in partnership with ADAC in 2011, and in Amsterdam hosted by Schiphol Group in 2012.
Over 100 leading executives from within – and outside – the industry, including many air-transport CEOs, will be welcomed to Qatar to present across the Keynote Arena, and five leading conferences covering airport development and environment, security, operations, IT, facilitation and customer service and digital engagement. Delegates are invited to assemble their own personalised agenda from sessions across the specialist conference streams.
In addition, more than 60 organisations will be showcasing the latest products and services for airside and landside purposes in a comprehensive airport services exhibition. – TradeArabia News Service
