Bryan Gilberd, Product Manager, Air New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND
“The event was a great opportunity to meet with like-minded people and share ideas. As an airline representative, I learned a lot about how our partner airlines strive to improve the travel experience”

Nandita Bhatt, Deputy General Manager - Architecture/Course Developer - IAP, Airports Authority of India, INDIA
“It is a global aviation world under one roof and it gives you the opportunity to learn and interact about all aspects of aviation. It also opens avenues to various discussions and future strategic planning. It was a perfect blend of the various subjects. The high quality of presentation content, combined with platform skills, added flavour to the conference”

Egsiam Saotonglang, Engineering Specialist, Airports of Thailand Plc, THAILAND
“An excellent and very informative event. The programmes are well organised with topics that cover various subjects related to each other in the associated session. The speakers have explicit knowledge on the topics, and are well organised for each individual presentation”

Kristian Durhuus, COO Copenhagen Airports, Denmark
“It’s a good event because some years ago there were several trade fairs, and there are still several trade fairs, but this one is becoming bigger and bigger. Basically, everyone is here. You can see all the suppliers of the different products and services you can buy in the aviation sector, and you can see all your competitors, your colleagues, etc. doing interesting presentations. In two or three days you can get a very condensed picture of what is out there and what you have to be on the lookout for if you want to move forward yourself”

Ka Chuen Fung, Senior Manager IT Planning and Strategy, Airport Authority Hong Kong, HONG KONG
“It was really good to listen to the many speakers from around the world as well as see many relevant exhibitors in the same conference event”

Simone Franke, Manager - Architectural Services, Greater Toronto Airports Authority, CANADA
“This event brings together so many interesting speakers and exhibitors. It is an excellent learning experience. The conference is great to attend if you are involved in the airport industry. There so many comprehensive programmes to choose from. It is truly a conference not to be missed”

Suresh Khadakbhavi, DGM Innovation Lab, Bangalore International Airport Ltd, INDIA
“It is the best aviation event globally and the only one that covers the complete airport ecosystem, providing a great platform for learning and sharing of knowledge. It has greatly helped in raising the global aviation business standards and performances”

“Once again, flawless execution! Thanks again for pulling together perhaps the most informative and entertaining aviation conference event! This conference deserves enormous kudos for providing a rich and varied tableau of topics. An amazing success and the feedback reflects it. Great lessons to bring back. Non-attendees are now suffering from genuine 'conference envy'. I guarantee stronger participation next year!”

Edson Engelhart, Project Manager, Curaçao Airport Holding, Netherlands Antilles
“This is great. I was here last year, so this is my second time. It is always fine to see all the new information from airports”

Flavia Scandone, Customer Relationship Manager, GESAC SPA - Naples International Airport, ITALY
“A good level of speeches and a very interesting exhibition. I appreciated the variety of the programme”

Gabriel Geza, Chief Engineer, Engineering and Maintenance, Civil Aviation Authority, Botswana
“I’ve been impressed by the breadth of topics and the size of the conference. I’m interested in the detail of airport planning. I wanted to learn how other airports are tackling the common challenges, developing and working to meet passenger expectations. The topics are relevant and I am looking forward to visiting the exhibition at convenient times around the conference. I can download presentations that I’ve missed later on”

Lance Lyttle, Managing Director, Sea-Tac International Port of Seattle, USA
“What the event gives me is solutions. I wish we had more time to actively go through the exhibition hall – it's huge. I haven’t had time to balance going to the conference sessions and going to the exhibition hall. So one recommendation I would make is to have more time to go through the exhibition hall, because so far pretty much every exhibitor that I’ve spoken to has some solution that I could potentially use. I think that’s one of the great benefits of coming here, that you actually find solutions”

Inger Seeberg, Director Environmental Affairs, Copenhagen Airports, DENMARK
“A well-organised conference with interesting presentations for all kinds of airport professionals. Very interesting content – it was hard to choose which presentations to hear”

Hiosvany Muina, North America Airports Regional Manager, Copa Airlines, USA
“An amazing opportunity to learn and share experiences and successful models that bring customer experience to new levels of satisfaction. One of the best conferences ever!”

Mohamad S Al Agha, Senior Manager IT Business Solutions, Abu Dhabi Airports, UAE
“Let me thank you for a great PTE conference in Amsterdam! The outcome was amazing and I am already looking forward to Stockholm next year!”

Luigi Battuello, Commercial Director, SEA Aeroporti Milano, Italy
“This is a great conference, not only for the networking, which is part of the event, but also as a great opportunity to update my knowledge and learn from colleagues doing the same job in US airports or in Asia. I decided to spend three full days here, which is not easy because we have a busy agenda, but it’s absolutely worthwhile”

Juan Ramon Matas Sebastia, Head of Operations Planning Department, AENA - Palma de Mallorca Airport, SPAIN
“The conference is well structured, which gives you the opportunity to select the sessions you would like to attend. There was a very good variety of content and subjects”

Laura Mayoral Tecedor, Senior Developer, Schiphol Group, NETHERLANDS
“The conference had a very wide range of speakers and topics. It was very positive to find out what the other airports are busy with”

Rob Gehring, Continuous Improvement Manager, London City Airport, UK

Carolyn Fennell, Senior Director Public Affairs, Orlando International Airport, USA

Alassane Ndiaye, Project Manager/CTO, AIBD, SENEGAL
“The conference was good and very useful”

Kok Wai Fong, EVP, Changi Airports Group, SINGAPORE
“The content of the presentations was very broad, interesting and extremely useful – especially when some papers were given by academics. Keep this up!”

Mats Berglind, Innovation Manager, Swedavia AB, Sweden
“I think the conference is a good way to network, first and foremost. A good way to network with other airlines and airports – fantastic. And when it comes to all the partners here and the vendors, they’re also very good. And listening to all the presentations, you can pick out gold nuggets here and there. I think that’s a great way to do this for benchmarking, but also for a couple of new ideas that I’ll be bringing home. So, very good”

Federico Cabrera, AOCC Manager, Puerta Del Sur (Carrasco Airport), URUGUAY
“The conference is improving every year! It is the place where everybody wants to be and make contacts, with an excellent mixture of speakers of high quality”

Normunds Feierbergs, Board Member, Riga International Airport, Latvia

Anna Fantoni, Development Planning Manager, Sydney Airport, AUSTRALIA
“I enjoyed every minute of it. It is by far the best conference about airports in the world”

Massimo Corradi, TEN-T Projects Coordinator, SEA Milan Airports, ITALY
“Very well organised and implemented. A tremendous opportunity to learn and keep up with the airport industry. All sessions were very informative. Brilliant for networking”

Michael Jarvis, Executive Planning, Australia Pacific Airports, Australia
“I think it’s a great conference. So many different topics, so many different regions. It’s a great critical mass of people and ideas here. I think it’s one of the best places to learn about airport planning and to get some great ideas”

Tara Roberts, Ground Operation System Specialist, EasyJet, UK
“Events like this are great because you really do get to see a different perspective. You get to meet other people and it opens your eyes, takes you out of your own little box or the area you’re working with. I’ve always said that it feels like there are a lot of chefs in the kitchen! We all want the same thing and we’re all going towards the same goal, but sometimes we just need to realign ourselves and figure out what is actually the best way to do ‘that’ and not keep thinking is our way the best way or is their way the best way. I think it’s just about communication now, and piecing the bits together to move us forward to that next generation of travel. My job involves a lot of emails, a lot of meeting people, but you never have enough time to quite get that reach out to everyone. I think this conference is a really good opportunity to get that message across in a positive way. It’s not just to reach suppliers. People want advice, people want help. I’ve got a very personal view that in order to make this work across this industry, it means everyone needs to be involved. You need to get that from everyone. It’s not a competition because we do need to work together in airports and airlines, and everyone needs to keep that consistency and that relationship. So I think it’s really good to have events like this to just bring it all together and how we’re actually all working together, really”

Gary Warren, Vice President, Metropolitan Airports Commission, USA
“Another valuable expenditure of time and money! Keep it going; things are changing too fast in this industry not to attend this conference each year!”

Nandita Bhatt, Deputy General Manager, Architecture/Course Developer – IAP, Airports Authority of India, India
“This conference is a platform where you don’t have only airport operators; it’s also the airlines and the other transport departments coming together. That gives a collective understanding that this is something we all need to do together. It cannot just be one particular sector that will be managing the multi-model system. So everyone from operator to stakeholders to other transport systems and departments has to be there, and also to see security and safety. I think there are other agencies here that can help to integrate, and also technology. So yes, that’s one platform under one roof”

Luigi Battuello, Commercial Director – Non-Aviation, SEA Milan Airports, ITALY
“The conference was a great opportunity to reflect on major trends/developments/threats/opportunities for our industry”

Paul O’Donovan, Head of Terminals, DAA Ireland
“I found it very, very interesting. I have met lots of good contacts here so I have to say I’ve been very, very impressed by it”

Louise Brix-Hansen, Head of Airport Optimisation, Copenhagen Airports, Denmark
“I’ve really enjoyed attending the conference. There’s been a lot of really interesting speakers and I’ve found the venue this year is even better than last year. I work in airport optimisation, which applies to all areas of the airport, so it’s good to have a wide range of subjects from security and terminal design, to passenger processing and operations. Our hope is to be inspired by the latest technologies and to learn from other airports in terms of previous challenges”

Vince Scanlon, EGM Planning & Infrastructure, Adelaide Airport Limited, AUSTRALIA
“The conference once again lived up to expectations by providing insight on specific topics plus diversity to allow new learnings in other areas of expertise”

Gary Summerlin, Design Manager, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, USA
“An excellent opportunity to discover what other airports are doing to improve their facilities and customer service”

Anna Fantoni, Development Planning Manager, Sydney Airport, Australia
“It’s very important for us to come to the conference because this is our first pilot in this kind of track in technology applications, and so we have a lot to learn. There are a lot of airports here that have already done parts of this journey that we’re trying to implement as an airport. The vendors are all here too, so I look forward to talking to them and hearing what types of technology they’re developing, and what are their new ideas and what we can implement in this pilot. I think it’s amazing how fast the industry is evolving. So many new entrants, so many new products; it’s actually hard to keep up. I really look forward to talking to all the people in the big hall and hearing what’s new”

Sander Stomph, Director Operational Excellence, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Netherlands
“The most interesting part of the conference is to see how people are pursuing their customer-centric strategies. There are a lot of similar stories and we share similar strategies, but we all pursue them in a different way. What I really like is to get inside the heads of all the other people in the industry and see their examples and their approaches, and try to learn from them and take out the best practices and try them myself”

Janine Gervais, Director, Passenger Services, Greater Toronto Airports Authority, Canada
“There’s been a lot of interesting learning in terms of operations and passenger experience and how you can co-exist. For me personally, the commercial stream always brings a lot of lessons, as does the passenger experience stream. This is a great conference for all the groups to come together and in not such a harsh selling environment. It’s much more collaborative and the thought around the conference is much more integrated. We’re having some really productive conversations here”

Urs Haldimann, Head of Legal and International Affairs, Federal Office of Civil Aviation, SWITZERLAND
“The programme contained an impressive number of highly interesting presentations that were clearly structured; this allowed participants to follow their streams of interest”

Carolyn Fennell, Senior Director of Public Affairs & Community Relations, Orlando International Airport, USA
“I think the experience here sort of solidifies that if you’ve seen one airport you’ve seen one airport. But coming here you do find there are common challenges and there are common needs that we have. The change in the industry has gone from whose customer is it, to who is the customer, who is the passenger, who is the guest. I love the transition the whole industry is taking, and all of the sessions here trace those channels that airport operators and owners have to go through. It used to be I’ll provide a receptacle for the aircraft and the people can walk as long as they need to walk, but I’ve got to take care of the aircraft. Now we see the focus on everything from customer service, to food, to infrastructure, to lighting, to what is your experience, what is your mood, the level of noise, all of those factors that would not have been my responsibility. But now it is the airports’ responsibility to create the experience, even though there isn’t necessarily a fiscal relationship between the airport and the guest”

It’s my third year coming here and the second year speaking, and it’s very exciting to be part of the 20th anniversary of the conference. Its organisation has been amazing. It’s a good learning exercise for me, as well as meeting new people and networking, and being able to speak about the information that I know. The people I speak to in the conference hall range from vendors to CTOs and CFOs. I get to meet a great spectrum of people and hear stories and tell my share of stories”

Dr Patricia Ryan, Director of Aviation, IOS Partners, USA
“We were at a seminar a few moments ago, in the concessions session, where we learned about this new ‘Generation C’ – eighteen-year-olds and below.

Richard Dinkelmann, CEO ICM Group, ICM Airports Technics, Australia
“It’s been great, it’s been really good, the quality of clients that we’ve seen here. We’ve seen many repeat clients, but we’ve also seen clients for the first time here and it’s just great. This is the show we don’t miss. We’re here every year, this is now our sixth year. We’re really happy to be here, to support it. It does give us value”

Bram Haans, Marketing Manager, LG Electronics, Germany
“It was a very important decision for us. It comes with our new focus where we are looking more at addressing the end users directly. As part of that, you will see there is very much attention on LG working together with our end users and with our channel partners to offer more bespoke solutions. So you see LG becoming more and more present in the relevant virtual market as we see it, and definitely transportation is one of those areas where we want to emphasise how relevant the products are. This is also a good channel for the products we have and the solutions we can put forward to the market, working with them. It’s just the first day. We’ve been open three hours and we weren’t expecting this kind of response, this quickly”

Dennis Mica, Business Development, 2GetThere, Netherlands
“A lot of airports attending here, a lot of consultants attending here, a lot of developers attending here. We wanted to see if it’s interesting enough for us to show ourselves as well”

Damien Breier, Vice President, BNP Associates, USA
“Passenger Terminal CONFERENCE is by far the best conference and expo combination in the industry, drawing high-level airport, airline and industry management year after year”

Francis Barich, Principal, Barich Inc, USA
“Very good. I floated between presentation sections and found most to be of extreme value. When I had a spare moment or two I spent my time in great discussions with vendors. Networking was great: not a dull moment”

Peter Smallridge, Stand Organiser, 3M United Kingdom plc, UK
“This is the only show, globally, where all of the players come. Actually, because the vendors are all a bit strapped for cash since the financial crisis, we’ve had to make decisions on which shows to come to. I think it’s actually helped PTE in a way, because there are some shows that you just have to be at. For us, we are supplying pieces of the identity management kit that often needs to be integrated maybe into kiosks, or into gates, or onto desks. Many of the people at the show are actually our customers and our channel partners, and it’s important that once a year we meet the people, we see what’s new on the block, we maybe meet some new competitors. We’ve met people from every continent on the planet during these two days”

Kim Madsen, Senior System Manager of IT and Controls, Airport and Logistics Systems, Beumer Group, Denmark
“We have been able to meet with a lot of customers. At two minutes past 10:00am [exhibition hall opening] there was a flood of people coming towards us. It’s great because we put a lot of effort into our presence here. You have a mix of system managers and technical here, so you get to do business and meet the technical people”
