Future Travel Experience Asia 2014

1-3 December 2014, Sama-Sama Hotel KLIA,
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

We are delighted to announce that the fourth Future Travel Experience Asia event (and our 15th globally) will return to where our Asia journey began back in 2010 – Kuala Lumpur.

We return to KL to coincide with ‘Visit Malaysia Year 2014’ and to help commemorate the opening of Malaysia’s Next Generation Hub, klia2, which opened in May 2014. klia2 will welcome up to 45 million passengers a year in what is the world’s largest purpose-built terminal dedicated to low-cost carriers.

Hosted by Malaysia Airports, the goal of FTE Asia 2014 is to stage another exciting conference, exhibition and social programme developed for travel industry stakeholders across the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. FTE Asia 2014 will help airlines, airports, handlers, cruise operators, government agencies, rail authorities, destination partners and industry providers make the best possible decisions regarding the evolution of passenger and baggage processing methods, terminal facilities and other offerings relating to improving the overall passenger experience.

FTE Asia 2014 will also be the first of our regional FTE events to have two parallel conference streams running simultaneously covering the latest passenger-focused efforts both ‘On the Ground’ and ‘Up in the Air’.

We aim to provide real inspiration on innovative new approaches in this field, and uniquely create dialogue between all stakeholders through this dynamic forum.

Air traffic in the Asia-Pacific region is growing at a phenomenal rate, which is why viewing demonstrations of the latest technologies and services relating to passenger experience enhancement is a key requirement to understanding the latest developments in this subject area. FTE Asia will have a large vendor exhibition showcasing the latest systems and components on the market and will have dedicated exhibition areas for both 'On the Ground' and 'Up in the Air' solutions.

Klia2 is Malaysia's Next Generation Hub and will enable seamless connectivity for both local and international low-cost and full-service carriers. Built to cater for the huge growth in travel across Asia, it is the largest low-cost airline facility ever built and has been designed to handle 45 million passengers a year. Upon its opening on 2 May 2014, klia2 will replace the existing Low Cost Carrier Terminal (LCCT) at KLIA.

Malaysia Airports will facilitate guided tours of this incredible new facility so FTE Asia 2014 delegates can understand the decision-making behind how the terminal came to fruition and how it will provide a truly unique passenger experience.
