See what our past Hosts had to say about their CONNECT experience
CONNECT is one of the most strategic forums for the development of air traffic in Europe. Hosting the event has allowed airlines and airports to see first-hand our destination and market potential. Thank you team CONNECT and looking forward to seeing you in Antalya!
“Hosting CONNECT in Tbilisi gave us the golden opportunity to show attending airlines the endless Georgia’s endless opportunities. One example of a successful outcome is our 2-year negotiations with Air France, coming to a head in the creation of the CDG – TBS route. This conversation began in 2017 during CONNECT in Ajaccio and was finalised in December 2018.”
“As an island, air transport links are the first priority of Corsica’s development. We need to be linked to European capitals all year round in order to grow our economy. Tourism underpins the economy of Corsica, and we are trying to develop other sectors, like the digital economy, but we won’t be able to do so without European and Mediterranean air transport links. Hosting CONNECT was an opportunity to capitalize onthe route development opportunities on offer.”
This event gave us positive outcomes from both B2B and social networking while we had a great opportunity to start new partnerships and developed existing ones. Also, the team of CONNECT did an enormous effort to make each participant as comfortable and good as it could be done in the best way. All of you have made it an unforgettable event!
“Hosting CONNECT was the perfect opportunity for Kerry Airport to work with the stakeholders in the region and getting them to better understand the important role the airport plays in the economic development of the area, while at the same time allowing them to see first-hand the process of route development. The exposure that CONNECT gave to Kerry has put the airport in a stronger position because now airlines had the opportunity to experience the type of destination/market it is.”
CONNECT is an event like no other. The event’s size is just right. Only the essential aviation stakeholders, route developments are there. Unlimited one-to-one meetings of an ideal lenght, an opportunity for participants to meet in a more informal environnement is a bonus! It is the only forum dedicated to route development where participants meet up in a relaxed, social setting whilst having the opportunity to talk business. CONNECT has contributed enormously to international route development!
