19th Annual Ground Handling International Conference, 27–30 November 2017, CCIB, Barcelona

There was plenty of talk following the 18th GHI conference that took place in late November 2016, at the Bella Center, Copenhagen. This was hardly surprising, given the event’s size and the sheer volume of business that took place over the three days.

Now in new hands, following the acquisition of Ground Handling International and sister publication Ramp Equipment News by the Mark Allen Group, this event, as well as the others within the portfolio, is expected to go from strength to strength. Indeed, delegates can look forward with confidence to a continuation of the status quo: enhancements will be subtle and those attending will still experience the same trusted formula, one that has been painstakingly built up over the last two decades.

In Copenhagen, a total of 63 exhibitors took space to showcase their products to the aviation sector: these ranged from IT solutions through GSE manufacture to handling services. A breadth of papers, delivered by industry professionals, was ably reinforced by interactive workshops and special interest streams. Over 3,000 One-to-One meetings were arranged, emphasising once again that that the GHI annual conference is the event to attend in terms of networking and business opportunities. Finally, the event’s organisers confirmed that feedback from those attending, in whatever capacity, was extremely positive once again.

This year's annual conference will take place in Barcelona, over November 27-30. Don't miss it!

The following are free of charge to all delegates:

• Supplier workshops • Over 3,500 One-to-One Meetings • GSE & IT Supplier Exhibition • Networking opportunities • Special Interest Streams • City Tour • Papers by top industry experts • Ramp Safety Awards Dinner •
