Message from AAAE Chair

On behalf of the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE), the AAAE Executive Committee, the Long Beach Airport and myself, I am excited to invite you and your team to Long Beach for the 89th Annual Conference & Exposition.

The theme of the conference is A New Standard, emphasizing the elevated standards AAAE holds itself to in delivering for its members and our industry, as well as the high standards our airports set for providing safe, efficient and enjoyable journeys for millions of passengers. In Long Beach, you’ll have the opportunity to network with your colleagues, exchange best practices and engage with industry leaders and experts as we strive to establish new standards for our ever-evolving industry.

AAAE's premier gathering also hosts one of the largest exhibit halls in the industry, giving you the chance to connect face-to-face with the providers of products and services to help you and your airport.

Mark your calendar and be sure to connect with your colleagues in Long Beach, May 7-10, 2017.

Carl Newman, A.A.E.
Chair, AAAE
CEO, Jackson Municipal Airport Authority
