“APEX will work closely with the Future Travel Experience team to help craft the FTE Global 2016 event to provide another valuable meeting platform for our strong membership base. I have every confidence that FTE Global 2016 with APEX will provide a vital forum for our members to take advantage of the educational, exhibiting and networking opportunities.”

Like us, APEX is dedicated to strengthening the air transport community, promoting innovation and ultimately improving the passenger experience, and their support in delivering our biggest event in the Americas to date will add great value.
