IATA World Passenger Symposium

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) World Passenger Symposium
The Convention Centre, Dublin

As the trade association for 84% of the world’s airlines, the IATA’s annual World Passenger Symposium is a chance for senior aviation figures to get together and formalise industry positions and public policy issues. It also provides a focus for emerging industry issues, as well as providing access to first hand intelligence on new technologies and processes.

Previous IATA Symposium’s have been held in Singapore and Abu Dhabi, attracting over 500 world-wide delegates.
