2018 Event Overview


With recently announced Government backing of a third runway at Heathrow pending the National Policy Statement and Parliamentary vote, these are exciting and critical times for the airports sector. All eyes are firmly on Heathrow as they begin to mobilise their key design teams and develop their roadmap for delivering the UK’s first new runway in 60 years. 

Against this backdrop, there are now some critical questions facing the industry. What does Heathrow’s provisional go-ahead mean for the UK aviation sector? What does Brexit mean for passenger growth and airport infrastructure expansion programmes? And how can the industry compete for much needed skills and resource with an upcoming pipeline of mega-projects such as HS2, Hinkley and Tideway?

Taking place on 17-18 May, the 11th annual Airports conference is set to be even bigger and better as it brings together the industry’s decision-makers at a critical time for the aviation sector. Join the who’s who in aviation to hear from the major clients driving airport expansion and asset enhancement programmes, understand what they are looking for from their supply chain and debate the key issues that could affect deliverability, from Brexit, passenger growth and connectivity to competing for skills and resource.
