National Conference and Industry Expo 2024

Tuesday 19 – Thursday 21 November 2024

Join us in Brisbane in …

It gives me great pleasure to invite you to become part of the Australian Airports Association’s (AAA) National Conference and Industry Expo 2024, to be held in Brisbane at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, from Tuesday 19 to Thursday 21 November 2024.

This year’s National Conference and Industry Expo theme is Airports of Tomorrow: Innovation and Excellence. It is set to be a dynamic and forward-thinking event which will provide a platform for thought leaders, industry experts, and stakeholders to share insights and discuss the latest challenges.

Airports are not only efficient transit points but also centres of innovation, sustainability, and unparalleled passenger experiences — through collaborative discussions and knowledge exchange, the goal is to chart the course for the airports of tomorrow.

The AAA’s National Conference and Industry Expo 2024 will assist in shaping the aviation industry towards a more sustainable, technologically advanced and passenger-centric future and will feature a three-day program and exhibition which will include plenary sessions, case studies and concurrent breakout sessions.

The AAA National Conference offers more ways than ever to connect with all sectors of the aviation industry.

I look forward to seeing you in November at the AAA National Conference 2024.

Hear what delegates have said about previous National Conferences

The regional stream was excellent, the topics were relevant and I was delighted to see the number of airports that attended those sessions.
A great conference with a great cross section of speakers. I took some valuable knowledge away with me – thank you.
It was really worthwhile to be able to catch up with some old faces and meet new ones. Great networking events.
