18th Annual Central Europe/North America Airport Issues Conference
October 29-31, 2012
Budapest, Hungary

The Budapest Airport, American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE), International Association of Airport Executives (IAAE) and, the U.S. Commercial Service Offices are pleased to co-sponsor the 18th Annual Central Europe/North America Airport Issues Conference, October 29-31, 2012, at the Kempinski Hotel in Budapest, Hungary. The conference sponsors would like to extend a personal invitation to you and your colleagues to participate in this industry workshop.

The purpose of the workshop is to introduce you to key aviation/airport-related companies throughout the region and to provide a forum for aviation officials to discuss challenges facing the industry today. This unique program will provide excellent networking opportunities among service/product providers and regional airport/aviation executives.

The workshop sessions will cover global aviation challenges, network airline and low-fare carrier challenges, airline incentive programs, airports’ roles in local tourism development, passenger handling, airport safety/security initiatives, ground handling, and retail concessions/franchising development at airports. Speakers will include prominent officials from airports in the United States, Europe, leading aviation corporate executives and high-ranking U.S. and European governmental officials.

The workshop will begin with a reception at 18:30 on Monday, October 29 and will officially end at 12:45 on Wednesday, October 31.

We expect a substantial contingent of representatives from U.S. and European companies to participate in the conference, in addition to a number of your European colleagues. Time has been set-aside for corporate representatives to hold one-on-one meetings to discuss specific projects with European airport/aviation executives on Tuesday afternoon, October 30.

The conference registration fee is 435 Euro per person (includes all business sessions, two evening functions, one lunch, coffee breaks, and speaker handouts). If you are in need of special discounted registration fees to attend or if you have multiple officials from your airport planning to attend, please contact Spencer Dickerson of AAAE at sdickerson@aaae.org and he would be glad to work out special registration deals for you and your colleagues. You will be responsible for hotel expenses at the Kempinski Hotel (195/210 Euro single/double per night). Rate includes daily breakfast. All delegates will be responsible for transportation to and from Budapest.

We do hope you will be able to join us for what should be a very exciting and informative program. Attached with this invitation is the conference registration/hotel brochure.
