ACI conference – Fostering the right environment for airport investment


GOA, India – The second annual Investing in Airports conference, taking place in Goa, India from 6 – 8 December 2016 will examine a number of important issues for investors, regulators, airport operators and airlines.

In the words of Angela Gittens, Director General, ACI, “Airports can no longer be viewed simply as isolated domestic infrastructure components where planes land and take off; they have increasingly become complex businesses in their own right that in many cases compete with each other to be the key socio-economic gateway to cities, regions, and even entire continents.”

The conference, organized by ACI in cooperation with ICAO and the International Transport Forum (ITF) at the OECD, will feature sessions and panel discussions on topics related to economic regulation, financing frameworks and tools to modernize infrastructure and service.

Panel discussions will include:

• Policy frameworks for sustained capital investments

• State of the airport industry and the investment horizon

• Reconciling the interests of investors, regulators, airport operators, airlines and the traveling public

• Market power and competition

• Service quality and passenger focused approaches to the oversight function

• Airport capacity constraints and infrastructure development across the globe
