ACI conference in Naples was a great opportunity to discuss with high level professionals and exchange on specific topics which appear as big challenges for the future. Airport management at the 21st century needs great skills and appropriate strategy, this was the perfect place to discuss in transparency and in a friendly atmosphere.

ACI EUROPE’S REGIONAL AIRPORTS CONFERENCE  EXHIBITION in Naples was a great opportunity for me, representing a smaller regional airport (Košice in Slovakia) to meet a community of partners and other airports. Interesting news and details in various matters I could gather from presentations and talks. Definitely a good decision to be there.
Michael Tmej, Chief Executive Officer, Košice Airport

I really enjoyed attending the 11th ACI Europe Regional Airport at Naples. Great opportunity to take the stock and shape the future of key Airport Management Challenges.  I appreciate the hard work and dedication from Naples Airport, Program Chair,  Speakers, and Presenters who helped to make the event a success. Last but not least, Naples is unique in its blended mix of history and innovation. 
Daniela Baglieri, Chairman, S.A.C. Catania Airport

I really enjoyed the conference, it was a very interesting experience and an opportunity to learn new and interesting things from my colleagues at regional airports with over 1 million passengers. I hope to use the information I have heard there in the near future at Craiova International Airport.
Mircia Dumitru, Managing Director, Craiova International Airport

Great conference. All hot topics for Regional Airports addressed by very good speakers. Perfect event to exchange best practice and networking. Excellent organization. A must-have conference.
Ulrich Heppe, Chief Executive Officer, Fraport, Twin Star Airport Management AD

The ACI EUROPE RACE is the ideal occasion to meet and network with other senior representatives and leaders of Europe’s regional airports, airlines and partners from the industry.  The discussion panels and presentations covered all matters of interest to regional airports and were the perfect forum to share best practices and to be informed about the latest ideas and innovations. The location, the city tour and the events organized by the host airport made the occasion even more special. 
Andys Frangos, Senior Manager Operations, Larnaka Airport

For a small airport like Perugia these events are important, useful and necessary. You can learn a lot and have interesting exchange of visions and ideas with other colleagues.
Umberto Solimeno, Managing Director, International Airport Umbria Perugia

It was a great event, packed with so much knowledge and great speakers. It was also an immense opportunity to source from a fruitful knowledge sharing among top industry peers. In the course of the event key aviation issues were tackled with an assessment of its possible impact on regional airports business. This conference is a must for all senior professionals engaged in airport management.
