The Airports Conference is an opportunity to diversify your network by interacting with government officials, airport owners and managers, consultants, contractors, and material testing laboratories personnel. The conference provides discourse on airport programs and policies as well as offering practical learning by experts in the airport industry.

Topics at the conference have included airport planning, design, finance, management, safety, environmental issues, engineering, and field lighting. The conference will focus on the leadership skills necessary to plan, develop and execute a safe and efficient regional airport system that satisfies the needs of its constituents with due consideration for economics, environmental compatibility, local property rights, and safeguarding the public investment.

Last year there were over 50 exhibitors representing products from airport lighting, asphalt, snow removal trucks, and fuel. Field maintenance, air traffic management, arresting systems, and deicing companies and a variety of engineering and consulting firms. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to network with other industry members and present your products and ideas to Airport Executives from around the country.
