Reasons to attend

  • Attended by over 700 delegates
  • Nearly 2,500 One-to-One meetings were arranged during the 2013 event
  • Key networking opportunities
  • The most important ground handling industry event of the year

Following the enormous success of the 15th Annual GHI Conference in Madrid that was attended by over 650 delegates and where nearly 2,500 One-to-One meetings were arranged during the event, it is clear that the Ground Handling International conferences are not only seen as the most important ground handling industry events of the year, with high quality speakers and key networking opportunities, but events where real business can be done.

For Gothenburg we are expecting over 700 delegates to attend who will make the most of our presentations from top international industry speakers, the suppliers exhibition area, networking and social events and of course our unique One-to-One meeting tool. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss the One-to-One meeting opportunities in detail as we schedule all the meetings for you and can help to schedule meetings with your key target delegates and maximise your time away from the office.

Gothenburg is the second largest city in Sweden and the fifth largest in the Nordic countries, situated on Sweden's glittering West Coast it is a perfect location for our next conference and is famous for its seafood and choice of dining as well as its beautiful coastline and archipelago. The conference hotel is just a ten minute walk from the stunning harbour front and the city centre, with its fine choice of modern and traditional Swedish goods. Gothia Towers, a brand new conference hotel with a state-of-the-art conference facility, is ready with a warm Swedish welcome to ensure that the 700 delegates who attend the 16th annual Ground Handling International conference will have a memorable and rewarding visit.
