Future Travel Experience
Asia EXPO 2017

FTE Asia EXPO 2017 is Asia’s biggest free to attend end-to-end passenger experience expo with an expected attendance of 2,500+. The event will provide an unrivalled platform for the industry’s most innovative solution and service providers from across Asia-Pacific and beyond to showcase their latest products and concepts designed to help airlines and airports improve end-to-end customer experiences, reduce costs, increase revenues and enhance operational efficiency.

Asia is the region with the fastest rate of growth and undoubtedly deserves a major trade show in its own right. Our seventh event in Asia will build upon the momentum created through our co-location with APEX EXPO and Aircraft Interiors EXPO Asia in 2016. We will remain at the Marina Bay Sands in 2017 and 2018, building our proposition with support from key event ambassadors and industry protagonists to create dynamic forums that will uniquely provide inspirational learning, extensive networking, a dynamic exhibition and interactive opportunities to collaborate to help shape the future of the sector.


The free to attend FTE Asia EXPO will host the most progressive suppliers from across the region, as well as the best from around the world, who will come together to showcase their latest airline- and airport-focused products and services. The expo will include dedicated ‘Up in the Air’, ‘In-flight Entertainment and Connectivity’, ‘Aircraft Seating Showcase’ & ‘On the Ground’ zones to cater to attendees’ different areas of interest. In addition to showcasing dynamic vendors and solutions, the expo floor will provide wider learning opportunities through the EXPO Seminar Stage, while the expo hall will also play host to the FTE Asia Awards ceremony.

Read what others are saying about FTE Asia EXPO...

"FTE Asia EXPO was a great exhibition and conference. It was very interesting to meet with industry leaders and exchange thoughts on the future travel trends"

Adam Symalla, Head of Guest Experience - Midfield Terminal, Etihad Airways

“FTE is an excellent platform to learn the latest initiatives & thoughts of different aviation stakeholders, I’ve learned a lot from FTE Asia Expo2016"

Joanne Ma, Assistant General Manager, Terminal 1, Airport Authority Hong Kong

“FTE Asia is an excellent platform for not just idea sharing, but meeting people you don't normally get the chance to deal with, such as Google and Microsoft.”

Jose Oller, VP Airport and Operations Control, Peach

“FTE brings together the key stakeholders involved in delivering an exceptional experience for the customer – the carriers, the airport owners, the vendors, IATA – all of the critical stakeholders are represented in one room, and everybody has a very clear focus on the industry's end game. The unique twist here is particular focus on the future of travel, the opportunities that it presents, where the growth is taking place, and how can we, as an industry, continue that growth.”

Emi Spanakis, Director – Customer Experience, oneworld Alliance

“The variety across the event is amazing. Among the exhibitors we have been presented with every sort of new gadget designed to enhance the passenger experience, and the panel sessions have sparked some very interesting discussions.”

H. K. Ng, Assistant Manager IT Operations, Hong Kong International Airport

“I'm always looking for events where a good quality and variety of exhibitors meets an excellent conference agenda, and that's exactly what you have at FTE. There are some really interesting topics covered at these events too – so far discussions about the value of self-service have been particularly good.”

John Newn, VP Res/Distributions, Royal Brunei Airlines

“Firstly, it's a very broad conference, so not only are you getting airlines, but you're also getting airports and suppliers, so from my perspective, it gives me a very large overview of everything that is happening in the industry. I've also gained a real understanding of what other airports and airlines are doing to improve my business, and I've been able to learn from them and also to share with them ideas that can improve the passenger experience across the board, so it's definitely a great forum for discussion.”

Tarik Kiki, Manager Ground Product, Jetstar

“I've met a lot of people and made a lot of new contacts – because of course one of the key reasons people attend FTE is for the incredible networking that you get here. There has been a great variety of vendors on show, and I definitely learned a lot from the speakers – a lot of them really struck a chord.”

David Blackwell, Executive General Manager Customer Service, Adelaide Airport

“It is very good because it attracts and joins together so many manufacturers, airlines and airports. You have established a platform for all of the airline industry to share information and share experiences, and that's very impressive I think. I have certainly learned a lot from the conference, and it is very good to see the new knowledge and information, as well as the new technologies, brought from around the world to here in Asia. It will prove very helpful to us in improving our own product.”

Meng Yang, Manager Simplifying the Business, Air China

“We get to hear from important players in the industry – the airports, the airlines and the authorities – on their views and expectations for the future of travel, and it ensures that all of us are moving in the right direction. There are a lot of key benefits to attending this event, and it is unique in that it brings people together to share their ideas and what they see in the future of our industry.”

Yuh Khee Leong, Vice President Technology, Changi Airport Group

“I am excited that FTE is staging a major-expo driven show in Singapore going forward, as it will provide a much-needed and unique platform for airlines and airports in Asia, the Middle East and beyond to exchange ideas and network, plus view the very latest and most relevant solutions, products and services in one place, which is vitally important as we continue to invest in supporting growth and improving the end-to-end passenger experience. I find participation very beneficial as it is an event where there are no borders, but only opportunities.”

Rossen Dimitrov, Senior Vice President Customer Experience, Qatar Airways
