Compared to other parts of the world, self-service take-up in Asia has been relatively slow, but the technology and methods are proven and passengers enjoy taking control of the process, so the theme of next year’s event is  “Advancing self-service initiatives to improve the passenger experience”.

Through the conference and exhibition, we will provide detailed case studies on the range of approaches available, and how to successfully implement these technologies and practices.

Sessions will focus on the following subjects:

  • Is Asia now ready to embrace a travel experience centred around self-service initiatives?
  • Innovative passenger and baggage initiatives from Asia Pacific travel industry stakeholders
  • Taking advantage of mobile technologies, including NFC, apps, social media and more
  • Strategies for designing new facilities and refurbishing existing terminals to meet the needs of the traveller of tomorrow
  • Addressing Government issues – Security, Immigration and Border Control 

The full event programme will be announced very soon. For more information, click here.
