Innovation Awards

Interested in getting the recognition your airport deserves for your innovative ideas and practices? The Annual Airport Innovation Awards, presented at the Airport Innovation Forum, is the perfect opportunity. 

How It Works

We’re looking for the most innovative and forward-thinking airports using the latest technologies and strategies to offer passengers the best traveling experience and improve operations. Airports will complete a nomination form that will be made available a few months prior to the Airport Innovation Forum. Winners are recognized at the Airport Innovation Forum and with a press release after the meeting.
