Americas Aviation Summit 2016 | 11-12 Apr
Willie Walsh, CEO, International Airlines Group
“I think the CAPA events are the best events that I attend. The quality of the debates and the way people engage – I think it’s very good.”
Peter Harbison, Executive Chairman, CAPA:
“We’re delighted to bring something different to the US conference landscape. CAPA’s Aviation Summits have a simple formula: We gather airline CEOs together for candid and high-level discussions in a superb environment, and encourage them to stay on longer. This makes for entertaining and challenging discussions, as well as high level networking for our delegates. Our industry continues to evolve rapidly – incumbent airlines are adapting to the challenges and transforming their businesses, while emerging markets like Asia and Latin America are creating huge opportunities for the industry.
“Meanwhile, airline alliances are evolving, Gulf carriers are extending their influence, corporate travel is adapting to an era of austerity and a raft of technological change is driving new responses by airlines. It all adds up to an exotic strategy mix for airline executives – and some fascinating topics for discussion at our Summits.”
Cathy Tull, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA):
“Las Vegas is honored to host the first ever CAPA Americas conference. As the entertainment and convention capital of the world, Las Vegas offers a truly unique experience to the world’s aviation leaders. From our $2.4 billion state-of-the-art international Terminal 3 to our ability to continually reinvent Las Vegas as an international tourism destination, Las Vegas is the perfect stage for industry leaders to connect and gain key insight into what the future of travel and tourism holds.”
