SMART Airports acts as a platform for South East Asia’s leading airport professionals to meet, network, discuss, and further enhance the region’s airport and passenger terminal facilities.
South East Asia’s economies are recording enormous growth during a time of global downturn. This has resulted in a large population of people moving up through the middle classes and having their eyes opened towards both local and international air travel. South East Asia’s many airports are expanding rapidly in order to cope with this increased demand.
At the central hub for this booming airport industry and home to what is regularly voted the world’s best airport, sits Singapore, making it the perfect venue for SMART Airports.
With South East Asia’s developing countries currently recording some of the best economic growth rates in the world, and also forecast as the fastest growing aviation market over the next twenty years at 8.4% per annum, there is no better time to meet, share and network with the industry leaders from this region.
South East Asia’s large population, rapidly expanding middle class and booming economies provide perfect ingredients for rising investment and demand in air travel, both locally and internationally. The rapid growth of aviation in the region has resulted in a wide range of current as well as planned investments in all sectors of the industry by governments, airlines, and other aviation companies totaling billions of dollars.
By 2025, Asian airports are expected to handle more than three times the volume of movements handled in 2005. Asia has been the location of the best airports in the world and continues this trend.
At the center of this rapidly growing region sits Singapore, home to one of the world’s busiest airports catering for over 54 million passengers a year – making it the perfect venue for SMART Airports 2017.
