2012 ACI-NA World Conference


On behalf of the ACI World Governing Board and the ACI-NA Board, it will be a great pleasure to welcome all delegates to the 2012 ACI-NA World Conference & Exhibition in Calgary.

As one of the year’s largest and most important events for airport industry professionals, the conference is your opportunity to network with colleagues and leaders in the airport industry and gain exposure to cutting-edge products and services in the aviation and airport sectors. You’ll also be able to meet airport professionals from around North America and the World as we produce this event together and learn from our airport colleagues all around the world.  We anticipate some 2,000 airport executives, business leaders and government officials from over 50 countries. 

In addition to the educational sessions and packed exhibition hall, our hosts at the Calgary Airport Authority has worked hard to ensure a terrific visitor experience in their city.  The host event is not to be missed and you should consider extending your visit to Calgary to include a trip to the majestic Rockies and experience the glorious outdoor offerings of the province of Alberta.

We look forward to the discussions and exchanges of ideas that will take place at the Annual Conference to generate winning solutions addressing the opportunities and challenges before us.  We look forward to welcoming you to Calgary in September!
