Airport Cities Development Conference (Built Environment Networking event)

A new urban form of development is evolving around airports – creating Airport Cities – and the leading figures from UK and Worldwide airports are all set gather for our annual Airport Cities Development Conference to discuss how to develop thriving aerotropolis, driving economic growth and business.

The world’s best airports will discuss, debate and share work that is being undertaken to develop and expand airports and their surrounding areas with a focus on smart, sustainable and major developments.

Through a series of exceptional panel discussions and gripping presentations we’ll uncover new insights and future plans from those at the forefront of the Airport Cities agenda, whilst hearing about new opportunities and how airport cities will feed into and integrate into the growth plans of the surrounding cities. The trending theme will also be how airports are adapting to climate change restrictions as the UK looks to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

Opening with keynote speeches from influential figures we’ll soon delve into the phenomenal opportunities which airport cities present, whilst gathering insights into best practice and the ingredients that make an airport city viable. We’ll then hear discussions and presentations from airport owners and operators alongside key stakeholders to hear how airport cities can knit into already existing cities, what infrastructure is needed to unlock growth, and what major developments are planned. The agenda includes:

  • International Airports; Leading the Way
  • European Airport Cities; Future Development Plans
  • UK Airport Cities; Future Development Plans
  • Airports of the Future
  • The Aerotropolis; Future Development Plans
