The 21st International Exhibition for Airport Equipment, Technology, Design & Services, inter airport Europe, will take place from 10 to 13 October 2017 at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany. Just three months ahead of the show, with around 31,000sqm of net exhibition space, the show has further grown in terms of stand space compared to the previous event. The trend currently driving innovation in the airport industry is the “interconnected airport”, which is therefore in the spotlight of this year’s show.
The interconnected airport as the future vision
While a high level of automation and digitalisation in some areas of international airports has already been achieved, the role of IT up until now has been a separate function to support certain processes. As a result, the concept of the interconnected airport takes this one step further and is now also influencing hardware, services and other equipment.
On the one hand, the main advantages of digitalisation and automation of all airport-related processes lead to optimised operations, increased efficiency and security, as well as an improvement of passenger experience, for example through measuring and the analysis of passenger flows and the flexible counteraction to bottlenecks during peak hours through mobile solutions. On the other hand, data security is gaining importance due to an increasing risk of cyber attacks that is caused by a higher level of digitalisation. Therefore, with the increasing degree of digitalisation, the demand for security concepts is rising equally.
Airport operators in demand of the latest equipment and innovative services for ground handling, terminal operations, airport IT and airport design can experience the latest trends first-hand and are able to source the latest technologies for the development and expansion of their airports, presented by around 620 exhibitors from 43 countries.
