AIR2023 – Save the date


Following the success of AIR2022 (Airports Innovation Roundtable) in Warsaw, we are very pleased to announce the next edition of this event will be held on the 18th and 19th of September in the Slovenian city of Bled.

AIR2023 will be dedicated to innovations in the aviation sector. Not only is the AIR conference held to identify and evaluate such innovations, but also to seek and build areas of cooperation and synergies between industries and communities.. Therefore, we are inviting partners and speakers working not only in fields such as the airport industry (from ground handling companies to retail operators), technology and process industry, but also in the tourism one.

We believe that creating platforms for cooperation may not only foster innovation, better management and efficiency, but it may also bring higher values. Together with the tourism industry – and all its aspects and a broad sense – we contribute to the growth of tolerance, trust, and peace in the world.

The main debate will be devoted to major global trends concerning opportunities and threats to the aviation. A separate panel will focus on the impact of the artificial intelligence development on airport management. The remaining panels will discuss technical and management issues.

The event is dedicated to the airport and aviation industry from Central European countries. Apart from the panels and presentations, the event will offer workshops prepared by our partners.

We are pleased the partnership has already been accepted by, among others, IATA, SITA, and the Polish Tourism Organization (Polska Organizacja Turystyczna). Moreover, the Polish Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Zbigniew Raul has assumed the patronage over the event among other sponsors.

Polish Airports will be the Strategic Partner of the event.
