Networking Opportunities

GAD - It's all about the network!

GAD is the only forum that brings together public and private, investors with projects, airports and experts - it's where partnerships are forged, deals and done and contracts are signed. 

Making sure you meet the right people is our priority. We design the programme to ensure you have all the time you need to catch up with the people you know and get in front of those you don't.  

All you need to do is bring lots of business cards, get going with the networking App and you can have all your key-client meetings under one roof and shore up your business for the coming year. 

1-2-1 meetings via the App

Use the award-winning Brella networking app to ensure you have all the meetings you need onsite.

The USP of our app is it's match-making algorithm which identifies people for you that are specifically looking to meet people with your expertise. GAD is a unique and hybrid community so this feature is an essential tool to uncover the people and opportunities you may otherwise miss.

Networking breaks & receptions

Prefer to network the old fashioned way? We’ve got you covered! 

We build many networking breaks into the agenda and host, at the end the first day of the conference, a reception in the hotel giving everyone a chance to catch up with friends and connect with new contacts or discuss the themes of the day.

Expert-led roundtables

During networking breaks, key speakers and experts in specific areas will be hosting discussion roundtables giving you the chance to get to know high profile industry leaders, get your questions answered and meet peers with the same interests. 

Exclusive lunches for VIP communities

GAD brings together representatives from around the world and this is often their own chance to share expertise with their international peers. We host exclusive lunches for members of these communities - government represenatives and Airport C-Suite, as a unique opportunity to meet global peers and share expertise behind closed-doors on day-to-day common challenges.

"the most important conference in the sector"

Connect with airports, investors, financiers, regulators, governments and airlines at the most important gathering for the global airport development and investment community.

GAD is a must on our calendar. It presents a fantastic opportunity to check the temperature of our industry; to preview new opportunities; and, of course, to network with friends and colleagues.
