McCarran International Airport Tours

The FTE Ancillary and FTE Global Las Vegas McCarran International Airport Tour provides a unique opportunity to experience first-hand the unparalleled facilities of this forward-thinking airport. Centred on the trailblazing Terminal 3, the tour begins kerbside, where delegates will explore the check-in areas – taking in everything from sophisticated digital signage to the utilisation of kiosks and advanced self-bag tagging facilities (which delegates will see in full use by United) – and will be given an understanding of check-in area layout and flexibility of design in the terminal space. From departures, the tour moves airside and onto the ramp where delegates will be able to see the Visual Guidance Docking Systems (VGDS) and airfield wireless in action before moving into the baggage room which utilises RFID technology. The tour will then move back into the terminal to look at the digital signage at the gates and the automated self-boarding system, offering a fascinating insight into the innovation behind McCarran International Airport’s operations.

More tours will be announced in due course

Why be part of FTE Ancillary?

Exhibitor & Delegate Testimonials

“Ancillary growth is imperative for all airlines, and digital is the great enabler to achieving that. However, many new collaborations must be forged between stakeholders to deliver the passenger the right offer at the right moment to enhance customer experiences and increase profitability at every stage of the passenger journey, whether that be through a mobile device or an IFE screen. FTE is working hard, and creatively, to bring those stakeholders together to learn best practice and forge new partnerships, and I am pleased to support their efforts.”

Juha Jarvinen, President, APEX Board & EVP Commercial, Virgin Atlantic

“I think the event has been very easy-going and a very warm atmosphere so it has been very easy to connect with everybody here. The programme has been very well structured with a good mix of presentations, but also I had some time to look at the expo and meet with people. The Gala Evening was very impressive. We are also very grateful for the Ancillary Award that goes to my team.”

Tiina Tissari, Vice President, Ancillary Business, Customer Experience, Finnair

“There is a great mix of airlines and airports and travel business attending, which makes it very valuable for the online travel world and doing business with them.”

Valerie Ringrose Fitzsimons, Senior Business Development Manager, CarTrawler

“The event has provided a great insight into the airline industry. It is providing us with a more holistic view on how we can drive ancillary from the inspiration to post-departure stage. It is good to get to know people and we have been able to meet with people with different perspectives from non-airlines as well, and it provides an informal way of creating further contacts.”

Stuart Martin, Revenue Management, Aer Lingus

“I really like the format of the elevator pitches, because there is often not enough time to go to each stand, so that has been a great way to quickly get an idea of the companies. Now that I know the conference, I’d definitely be back next year.”

Patrick Bohl, Head of Retail and Advertising, Budapest Airport

“My main goal here is to hear the latest ideas and trends in the industry, as our airline is a relatively new player in terms of ancillaries. The exhibition has been very interesting and I have been impressed by the number of startups present. The networking has been good, and the event overall has been very well organised.”

Georgy Vakhrushev, Senior Pricing Manager, S7 Airlines

“For me, the event has been excellent. It is a very personal event and easy to connect with the right people. The conference topics have been very interesting, and there has been a very good level of interaction between the speakers and the audience.”

Ingvi Gudmundsson, Product Designer, Icelandair Digital Labs

“Epic. We’ve got 13 solid leads from big airlines. The networking tool is awesome. We do a lot of trade shows and I have to say the 1-2-1 networking tool has made a big difference.”

Al Tredinnick, Business Development Manager, 15below

“We’re very happy. It’s been one of the best shows for us so far as it’s been very focused. We had a lot of meetings set up before the show and I think we’ve had more than 20 airline meetings, and we’ve received very good feedback.”

Diego Cachero Rodriguez, CEO, 3D SeatMapVR

“It’s been a great show for us with lots of good meetings; the number of airlines here has been good for us. The app has been very efficient.”

Fitzhugh Patrick, Director, Business Development, Fusion & Mark Brown, VP Sales & Client Accounts, EMEA, Fusion
