The leading forum for strategic airport development and investment in the Americas

Delivered differently in 2020

Connecting with peers and sharing expertise is more important than ever.  

Given the ongoing uncertainty under COVID-19, travel and social distancing restrictions, we know many members of the GAD community will be unable to join us in person this year.  We will therefore be hosting the forum in a new, virtual venue, to guarantee GAD can take place in a safe, social environment that is accessible to all. 

Digital meeting technology is increasingly sophisticated and will enable us to deliver the same fundamental and invaluable elements of the conference - quality information, real-time engagtement with your peers and new connections - just in a different way.
