The National Airport Economic Development Conference will take place in Columbus, OH on April 10-12, 2017. Airports play a vital economic role in the community. Increasingly airports are being asked to support a region’s economic development. This happens through a variety of ways – increased air service opportunities to attract and support existing businesses, partnering with local economic development agencies, or developing their own airport property to attract both aeronautical and non-aeronautical development.
