Our priority for this event is to tell the story behind the landmark new airport in Istanbul, from conception to delivery. The key means by which this will be achieved is through two unique conferences. These will be complemented by a series of conference sessions led by Future Travel Experience, which will provide a platform for leading airport and airline speakers from around the world to share their latest strategies and visions.
