The world's leading airport privatisation and finance forum

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.  See more information here.

Tune in to sessions from around the world

Now that we are no longer bound by a single location and speakers inhibited by long haul travel, we are able to accommodate content from around the world on different time zones in one programme. 

Registrants to GAD World will automatically be able to access the full GAD Americas conference programme as well as early morning sessions, broadcast from Asia. 

Any content you miss can be watched on demand and you can schedule meetings with participants on the other side of the world when it is convenient for you both.
