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.

The Istanbul Airport Showcase Conference

A deep-dive on the story behind the new airport. You can expect to hear from senior executives from İGA, Turkish Airlines and the other key partners to the project, who will share insight on how the new airport was approached, the challenges that were overcome along the way, and the key learnings other industry stakeholders can take away and apply to their own development projects.
