Over 600 world aviation specialists arrive in Akld

Over 600 world aviation specialists arrive in Auckland!


This weekend Auckland International Airport begins hosting over 600 delegates at the ACI World Pacific combined conference. It “kicks off” on Sunday night with a welcome ceremony at the Aotea Centre.

This year, the annual world conference is combined with the Pacific regional conference. It will see airport executives and aviation business partners from 58 countries around the world gather at the SkyCity convention centre in Auckland from 6 to 9 November. ACI (Airports Council International) is the worldwide body representing airports – the ‘voice of the world’s airports’.

The theme of the conference is “Airports and tourism – a partnership for growth”. Delegates exchange views and hear from a range of speakers on topics of current interest to the airport and tourism sector.

Auckland Airport CEO, Don Huse, says that the conference is a great chance to showcase Auckland and New Zealand and what they can offer world markets, “We have made sure that the conference is not a typical ‘listen to the lecture’ event, and will encourage interaction between the speakers and conference participants.”

“We want delegates to feel this is a different kind of conference than they are used to.”

“Alongside the conference runs an exhibition in which New Zealand companies will feature prominently. Among the over 50 exhibitors are a significant number of New Zealand enterprises with leading-edge aviation products and services.”

“We have world-class aviation expertise in New Zealand. The conference will bring over 600 airport managers and executives to Auckland. This presents these companies with a unique opportunity to introduce their technology and skills to a whole range of growing aviation markets across Asia, the Pacific and further afield.”

“Auckland Airport is greatly looking forward to welcoming these delegates over the next few days and giving them a Kiwi experience they will long cherish.”
