Since its launch in 2006, Airport Exchange has established itself as ACI EUROPE’s largest meeting and continues to be the premier industry event at which expertise is shared, business relationships are formed and industry development is the principal goal. In early October 2010, TAV Airports and the city of Istanbul hosted the 5th edition of Airport Exchange, which for the first time was delivered in partnership by both ACI EUROPE and ACI Asia-Pacific to bring European and Asian air transport executives under one roof. It was a major success attracting over 1,000 visitors and a host of leading speakers, exhibitors and dignitaries from around the world.
In a first for the Middle-East Airport Exchange was staged in Abu Dhabi during November and again attracted considerable industry support.
Brian Stapleton attended and renewed or established many associations with Carriers and airport Operators.
