Airport ecosystems are amongst the most complex in the world and dealing with these complexities in the context of the whole airport process is a significant and multi-faceted data challenge. But data is the key to driving efficiency and effectiveness – it’s a matter of turning these challenges into opportunities. 

Join us live on 22 November at 15:00 GMT to find out:

  • The role that data plays in this process
  • How operators can connect disparate data sources
  • The importance of deriving truly actionable intelligence
  • How to keep all stakeholders engaged in the process.
