The event has been great. We’ve met some really interesting people. We’ve certainly met more airports here at the event than in previous years. Our stand has been busy, and it has certainly been the right people visiting us.

Matthew Pearson, Chief Product Officer
London Luton Airport

It has been a really good event, very interesting. We haven’t stopped – it has been so busy on our stand. We have told the airport’s operating company that they need a stand here too next year. I’ve met a lot of interesting people here at The British-Irish Airports EXPO.

Anita Gackowska, Service Director
Vanderlande

The event has been very productive for us. We have had a lot of interaction with key personnel from airports, so it has been very beneficial for us exhibiting here. We have met with key airports and had the opportunity to showcase our current products and our future innovations.

Ryan Finnigan, Former Business Development Manager
Dublin Airport

I really enjoyed the British-Irish Airports Expo. It was very insightful, the speakers/panellists were very knowledgeable and the networking opportunities were fantastic. The event was very well organised and I will definitely return to next years event and would recommend to others.

Liz Kavanagh, Customer Experience Manager
SASIG

Well organised, interesting conference programme, good exhibition and free for delegates to attend. Exceptionally good value which all with an interest in aviation in the UK and Ireland should attend.

Chris Cain, Head of Secretariat
Glasgow Airport

This free to attend event should be an automatic entry into every Airport Managers' calendar. This 'one stop shop', offers great networking opportunities to meet with suppliers and listen to some very interesting and thought provoking presentations which befits current and future thinking of British and Irish airports and all done in a relaxed and social atmosphere.

Gillies Crichton, Group Head Of Risk And Assurance
Ppl Training Ltd

PPL Training Ltd are an AGL training provider to most of the UK Airports and found this event a huge success being able to meet many of our clients under one roof. It also opened up opportunities to network with new potential clients and showcase our training service to everyone that attended.
