The Interactive Passenger Experience

Airports are accessing every surface available to communication with passengers. Walls are becoming screens, many with an interactive component that can engage travelers, provide wayfinding and other information, all of which enhance the passenger experience. At the same time, virtual reality, augmented reality, artificial intelligence and other technologies entertain passengers and ease their journey through the airport.

Airport Opportunities

North American airports are constantly expanding, remodeling and rethinking their concessions programs. Properties executives lay the groundwork for changes months and even years before a project comes to fruition, so it's crucial that concessions operators stay in the loop on new developments. In this session, airport representatives will discuss their upcoming opportunities in concessions and other revenue-generating areas.
