Event Overview

From biometrics to cybersecurity or robotics to automation, aviation technology is evolving at breakneck speed. With so many applications in safety, efficiency, customer service and sustainability, it’s not always clear which ideas are worth adopting and which to sidestep. Used effectively, technology offers significant benefits for us, our customers and our workforce as well as clear economic advantages.

‘Airport A&I’ is the two-day conference at London Heathrow Marriott Hotel exploring the space where industry regulation and technology shape the future of airports. We explore practical applications of new technologies across every aspect of the airport and present case studies from across the globe.

As airports introduce infrastructure, technology and process improvements to meet the demands of the ever challenging and expanding industry, Airport A&I is there to demystify the latest developments and ensure you are up-to-date with the best practices and learning initiatives.

“The value isn’t in the automation or innovation, it’s in the mind-set of always looking over the horizon so that you’re part of the disruption and not merely subject to it.”


Darryl Dowd is one of over 20 speakers at Airport A&I 2020:
