Canary Wharf in London will host a unique airline and airport networking event in April next year with the launch of AIRLINE 2018 developed by GTI Global Travel Investments (GTI), a pioneer of previous aviation events.

AIRLINE 2018 will bring together the world’s air service development professionals in an exciting, effective and innovative new business format providing networking opportunities of the highest standard.

Airline 2018

Airports will be located at their own ‘presentation base’ ready to be targeted by airlines for those important route discussions whilst diaries will be personally tailored to maximise meeting requests. Tourism authorities and economic development representatives will also be welcomed to strengthen the case for new routes and air services.

This ground-breaking event will be based in Canary Wharf in the heart of London Docklands and the relaxing nature and quality of the venue will set new standards delivering aviation networking in a truly Club atmosphere with great views overlooking the capital.

Sallyanne Collins, the Event Director for GTI revealed:

AIRLINE 2018 will provide an exclusive networking opportunity for airlines and airports to discuss new business opportunities. Delegates will make best use of their business schedule by undertaking a mix of formal diarised ‘Face to Face’ meetings, informal relaxed networking in the exclusive hospitality room or attending brief ‘handshake’ sessions with new contacts to deliver the most effective route development opportunities. Our research tells us that senior decisionmakers in aviation are increasingly time precious and wish to minimise on time away from their desk. We are proud to launch a high quality and effective networking event in London.”    

Collins confirmed “We’ve been overwhelmed by the initial interest in AIRLINE 2018. Airports and airlines from around the globe are lining up to attend the event for this landmark event in the aviation calendar.”
