More than 500 aviation executives will gather in Adelaide next year for the Centre for Aviation (CAPA) Australia Pacific Aviation & Corporate Travel Summit 2020.
Taking place on 5 and 6 August, the summit provides a platform for aviation executives to share their insights on airline policy and plans to better serve the Australia Pacific by air.
The summit will also explore the competitive market outlook, bring together key analysts to understand the competitive market and deliver debates on the issues and challenges facing the region.
South Australian Tourism Commission chief executive Rodney Harrex said the event will showcase South Australia’s events and tourism offering.
“Hosting the CAPA Summit offers us the chance to share the wonders of Adelaide with leaders in the aviation and travel industry and open up discussion on the South Australia aviation market,” he said.
“Increasing air connectivity to South Australia remains high on our agenda, as we continue to seek ways to share our beautiful state with more people and accommodate for our future growth.”
Ranked as Australia’s fastest growing capital city airport for international passenger numbers in 2016-2017, Adelaide Airport is now undergoing a $165 million terminal expansion.
Adelaide Airport managing director Mark Young said the CAPA Summit will give attendees a first-hand look at advanced stages of the airport’s construction project.
“The CAPA Summits are always an excellent opportunity to connect with airlines and other industry participants, and we’re delighted that Adelaide has been chosen as host in 2020,” he said.
“We welcome the opportunity to showcase our wonderful city and airport, and the chance to demonstrate our recent and future opportunities for growth.”
