SMART Airports & Regions – Canada 2016

What is the SMART Airports & Regions Conference & Exhibition?

uAirports are fast becoming focal points of the global economy and growth generators of the regions in which they serve.

SMART Airports & Regions will explore the catalytic effect and critical success factors of airports and the key commercial corridors enveloping them on growth, job creation and regional development.

As commercial airports develop, enhancing the movement of people, goods and services around the world, how are they collaborating with the regions in which they serve to best leverage their competitive advantage?

How important are key infrastructure nodes on economic development and what are the strategic steps to achieving the best possible outcomes?

What is the impact of technology, innovation and smart collaborative planning in achieving the best results for your airport and region?
