The 10th ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Assembly, Conference & Exhibition opened on Tuesday in Amman, Jordan.

The event has attracted over 350 senior airport, airline, aviation authority and aviation business executives, representing over 136 organizations from all over the world.

The conference, hosted by Airport International Group and organized by ACI Asia-Pacific, is being held from 28 to 29 April 2015 in Jordan.

This years conference, themed Sustaining Aviation and Tourism Growth under Unprecedented Challenges, will discuss on how the aviation and tourism industry, with a close connection in its nature, unlock potential and achieve growth.

The conference covers a wide range of discussions from airport collaborative decision making; challenges & opportunities in Middle East; maintaining safety and operational efficiency; addressing emerging threats; passenger services; route development and tourism to maximizing airport revenue. Highlight of the conference is on the Leaders summit to be held tomorrow, with cross-stakeholder discussion focusing on key issues of the future in the face of unpredictable changes.

Dennis Chant, President, ACI Asia-Pacific said, Tourism and aviation development go hand in hand, one impacting the other. However, tourism can be very vulnerable and easily affected by the countries policies and political stability. Airports in our region understand this intricate relationship between the two industries and the importance in supporting and facilitating international tourism within their own countries.

2015 marks the 10th anniversary of the unification of Asia and Pacific regions of ACI.

Mr. Chant said, Since the establishment of the unified Asia-Pacific region, much has changed in the airport industry. Asia-Pacific has become the major growth engine in the global aviation market; our membership has increased significantly, to almost 100 members operating close to 580 airports in 47 countries.

With the support of the members and coordination by the Regional Office, we have achieved many milestones in the past 10 years. As the only association in the region to represent airports interests, ACI Asia-Pacific is dedicated in ensuring that ACIs mission to advance airports collective interests and to promote professional excellence is achieved, he concluded.

The next ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Assembly will be held in Gold Coast, Australia, hosted by Queensland Airports Limited.
