Through a series of exceptional panel discussions and gripping presentations we’ll uncover new insights and future plans from those at the forefront of future airports, whilst hearing about new opportunities and how airport cities and employment hubs will feed into and integrate into the growth plans of the surrounding cities. The trending theme will also be how airports are adapting to climate change restrictions as the UK looks to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Opening with keynote speeches from influential figures we’ll soon delve into the phenomenal opportunities which airport cities present, whilst gathering insights into best practice and the ingredients that make an airport city viable. We’ll then hear discussions and presentations from airport owners and operators alongside key stakeholders to hear how airport cities can knit into already existing cities, what infrastructure is needed to unlock growth, and what major developments are planned. The agenda includes:

  • The Future of Airports – Connecting Global Britain
  • International Airports & Airport Cities
