Destination ExCeL: Passenger Terminal Expo 2019 smashes attendance records

11 April 2019

Passenger Terminal EXPO is a peripatetic international platform for the airport and airline sectors to interact and share common issues, goals and solutions about the airport industry, with a focus on the terminal.

London welcomes the world

Held for the first time in ten years at ExCeL, Passenger Terminal EXPO set a new attendance record: The event welcomed over 10,000 people from more than 1,500 organisations and 130 countries, further cementing the show's status as the world’s leading international airport event. It also played host to the Skytrax World Airport Awards, with Singapore Changi Airport once again crowned as the World’s Best Airport.

More than 350 specialist airport technology suppliers presented their latest innovations across more than 19,000m2 of exhibition space.  Over 400 expert speakers shared their insights at the Passenger Terminal Conference held in the Platinum Suite, whilst the gallery rooms were used for additional conference, networking and training events.

Andrzej Smith, Show Director, Passenger Terminal Expo said, “ExCeL London has been the perfect venue for us in 2019.  The ability to seamlessly co-locate the highly respected Passenger Terminal Conference in a bespoke environment along with the separate spaces for key out of exhibition activity, has enhanced the visitor and organiser experience.  We are delighted with the outcome and the welcome we received from the ExCeL team.   It signals that London is well and truly open for business.”
