Welcome – Airport Council International Conference 2018

On behalf of African airports, I would like to invite you to participate in the 59th ACI Africa Board and Committees meetings & Regional Conference and Exhibition to be held from 14 to 20 April 2018 in the dynamic city of Lagos, Nigeria to be hosted by the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN).

Airports Council International (ACI) is a Not–For–Profit organization representing commercial airports worldwide. ACI advances the collective interests of, and acts as the voice of the world’s airports and the communities they serve, and promotes professional excellence in airport management and operations. ACI Africa currently comprises 62 regular members located in 47 countries, managing 250 airports and 27 Business partners.

Airports have a huge potential to create jobs, facilitate international trade and tourism and be catalysts for economic growth. To perform these roles and continue to reap the benefits, airports must ensure sustainable development that includes the enhancement of non-aeronautical revenues as a critical component of an airport’s revenue stream and bottom line.

The theme of this conference is “Business Transformation for Sustainable Development of African Airports”. The conference will discuss the need for a change in the perception of business in African airports, to improve the profitability of infrastructure, optimize resources, generate profits and ensure the sustainability of the business.
The conference will highlight the importance of industry partners and public-private partnership for innovative project creation, leadership and strategic planning as tools to achieve these goals.

The conference will bring together about 300 high-level participants, including African and international aviation government officials, airport executives and recognized leaders from the public and private sector, international institutions and service providers, and will be the ideal backdrop for networking, business meetings and marketing of products and services.
This event will be hosted by FAAN and we would be pleased to have you among our partners and sponsors. Support for this event may be realized through:
