The Airports Council International (ACI) Latin America-Caribbean/World Annual General Assembly, Conference and Exhibition, organized this year under the theme "Airports: Shaping our future" and graciously hosted by Tocumen International Airport, is just two weeks away. From 31 August to 2 September, airport leaders from around the world will gather in Panama City, Panama for an informative conference and a leading-edge exhibition.

While the conference is centered on charting a course for sustainable growth and the exhibition features the latest innovations from product and service providers specializing in airports.

By popular demand, this year's conference will be preceded on 31 August by an expanded Forum and Symposium programme covering safety, the environment, generating commercial revenues, human resources, and new airport developments in China and the Latin America-Caribbean region.

The conference itself has been crafted from the ground up to give delegates the chance to deliberate on issues of particular interest to airports. Session topics include CEO insights on future challenges and opportunities; catering to the emerging generation of air travelers; improving the passenger journey from curb to boarding; best practices during periods of disruption; and new tools and technologies for improving the customer experience.

Notably, keynote speakers at the event include Jorge Quijano, Chief Executive Officer, Panama Canal Authority and Pedro Heilbron, Chief Executive Officer, Copa Holdings and Copa Airlines. ACI is pleased to announce that Juan Carlos Varela, President of Panama, will open the conference on 1 September.

"There is no greater testament to airports being drivers of local economies and connectors of people and businesses than having the President of Panama address attendees at the 2015 ACI Latin America-Caribbean/World Annual General Assembly, Conference and Exhibition," said Javier Martinez Botacio, Director General, ACI Latin America-Caribbean. "I would like to thank Tocumen International Airport for hosting this important event, and I look forward to welcoming delegates to beautiful Panama. For those who have not yet registered, I urge you to take part in the discussion today for a safer, more secure and more profitable airport industry tomorrow."
