The great debate: Airport regulation, friend or foe?
Airport regulation is important. Airports are vertically integrated businesses.
Landside - do airports give enough space on site for rideshares, car parking, are ride-shares being overcharged?
Airside - aircharges are rising - is that a sign of market pricing?
Fuel lines - is there competition in the supply of jetbill?

Social impact in the travel and aviation industry - gender diversity, Indigenous affairs, environment and more
As customers, employees, suppliers and society at large begins to place increasing importance on corporate social responsibility, corporate leaders have started to implement practises which positively contribute to society.
The big challenge for executives is how to develop an approach that can truly deliver on these ambitions. Some innovative companies have managed to overcome this hurdle by partnering with other businesses with social responsibility at its core.
In this important discussion, we will hear from organisations who live and breathe social responsibility, empowering female leaders and those businesses who are drivers for change.
