inter airport Europe 2021: The world’s leading airport exhibition presents Runway to recovery Seminars in partnership with SMART Airports

A total of 332 exhibitors from 29 countries will present their latest developments and solutions for aircraft, passenger and cargo handling, security and airport IT, architectural components as well as ground support equipment at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany.

Runway to recovery Seminars organised by inter airport Europe and SMART Airports

At this year’s show, visitors can expect a comprehensive seminar programme which is organised in partnership with SMART Airports for the first time. The seminars will take place in hall B6 and are available to all attendees. The seminars take place on all four exhibition days and will cover the following topics:

The recent pandemic has driven a global shift in the way many public spaces are perceived, and airports are no exception. The sessions in this segment explore how airports will approach design differently in the years to come, as well as innovative solutions to help manage changed consumer behaviour.

As airports build back their operations, environmental and cost pressures will be greater than ever. These sessions address the immediate logistical challenges to building back operations, and how Ramp & GSE innovations help meet environmental and cost challenges, whilst achieving flexibility and agility in airports’ operations.

The ‘great industry reset’ is here for aviation, and it won’t be fast or easy. Listen to industry experts on how to enable greater sustainability at airports, meet sustainability challenges and realise opportunities for the airport sector such as the use of renewable fuel sources to reach the target of net zero emissions.

SMART technologies and innovations are revolutionizing the way passengers and air-based commerce move around the globe.
