Next year, 13-15 March, Vilnius will become the focus for air service development in Europe, hosting the 13th CONNECT event.
Taking place over 2.5 days, the CONNECT 2016 will bring together airlines, airports and industry suppliers to discuss and debate current and future aviation issues in a series of head-to-head interviews, keynote addresses and round table sessions. Over 400 delegates are expected to take part, including more than 50 airlines and 150 represented airports. The event will be hosted by Lithuanian Airports and will take place in the National Gallery of Art.
‘Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, is a dynamic and vibrant city. It is a destination with a rich heritage to explore, a warm welcome and great hospitality awaits all participants to the event: A growing number of airlines and a wider spectrum of airports are turning to CONNECT for a friendlier and more relaxed networking event. CONNECT delivers maximum results thanks to its less pressured and more productive setting’ says Karin Butot, Managing Director of the Airport Agency.
Gediminas Almantas, CEO of Lithuanian Airports says ’Lithuanian Airports are very proud to host CONNECT 2016 and welcome Europe’s aviation industry to Vilnius. Lonely Planet, Forbes Life and the Huffington Post acclaimed our country as a must visit destination in 2015, and we would like to share this experience with airlines, airports, and the aviation & travel industry from all around the world’.
CONNECT is the International Aviation Forum, a focused platform for aviation decision makers to meet, discuss, and shape their future networks across Europe and beyond. It is an annual event, created in 2004. CONNECT 2015 took place in Killarney (Ireland).
