An EXPO for airports of all sizes, both Commercial & Military

The airport sector is diverse and there are few industries that do not overlap with ours. It takes a multi-skilled employee base, and a strong partner and supplier network, to meet the myriad challenges and opportunities airport operators face today.

The British-Irish Airports EXPO is a dynamic, free to attend show providing invaluable opportunities to meet, under one roof, all the leading vendors and service providers supporting airports on these shores, providing an incredible education and industry networking platform on an unparalleled scale.

National, regional, hub and military airports take equal billing at this event. Invaluable dialogue between industry stakeholders and the sector’s leading suppliers and service providers can take place in an exciting event environment that looks to break the mould of what we have come to expect from industry shows.

The British-Irish Airports EXPO aims to provide something for every single influential industry employee, ensuring a diverse attendance from C-level executives through to the department heads and the senior managers that work for them.

Recognising and advancing the industry behind our industry, bringing together ALL stakeholders
