Airports as the great global brand ambassadors – the further advancement of the most effective marketing platforms in the world
The ACI EUROPE Airport Commercial & Retail Conference & Exhibition this year headed to Helsinki. The central theme of this year’s event – ‘Airports as the great global brand ambassadors – the further advancement of the most effective marketing platforms in the world’ – permeated each of the conference sessions.
The 9th ACI EUROPE Regional Airports Conference & Exhibition took place in Vilnius on 11-13 May, graciously hosted by Lithuanian Airports. Report by Inês Rebelo
Since the arrival of the security rules on liquids, aerosols and gels in summer 2006, passengers have to surrender bottles of water at airside security checkpoints. As part of a series of efforts to reduce the inconvenience of this rule, airports have sought new ways to address the problem by making water cheaper or more easily available. ACI EUROPE took note and issued a Recommended Practice last year and since then a good idea has spread further and further. Robert O’Meara reports.
