|It is a pleasure to invite you to register to attend the 72nd IATA Annual General Meeting (AGM) and World Air Transport Summit taking place in Dublin, Ireland, from Wednesday 1 June to Friday 3 June 2016.
This year’s AGM takes place against a backdrop of generally rising industry financial health but also a growing regulatory burden. Security, safety, and environment issues, however, remain top of the industry agenda. The long-tern trend shows safety is steadily improving, but recent tragedies reinforce the importance of working together to fully understand and reduce the risk of future occurrence. The industry also faces a vital year at ICAO with the decision in September on whether to implement a global market-based measure for aviation.
These issues will be addressed by the industry’s top leaders at the IATA AGM.
Program highlights will include:
• The IATA Director General’s Report on the Industry
• Updated Economic Outlook
• CEO Insight Panel
• Panel Discussions on Cyber Security and the Environment
• Media Briefings on key industry topics
A preliminary media program with the event highlights and special briefings is now available
Accreditation and media facilities
The IATA AGM is an invitation-only event. Sessions are open to pre-registered, accredited press, who will have access to full media room facilities, including a reserved working area, wireless Internet and printers.
