To commemorate the landmark opening of the new Istanbul Airport mega-hub, which opened on 29 October 2018, Future Travel Experience is taking its Europe and Ancillary shows to Istanbul, rebranding them as Future Travel Experience EMEA, and co-locating the event with The New Airport Show Istanbul.
These outstanding shows will collectively provide the perfect platform to bring together the world’s airlines, airports, vendors, startups, OEMs, government agencies, destination partners and various other key travel industry stakeholders.

Over the last two years, we have established FTE Ancillary as the world’s definitive digital airline retailing show, and in 2019 this event will thrive within the FTE EMEA show. Inspired by the latest digital developments, airlines are now thinking way beyond just selling flights and they are exploring a variety of inventive ways in which they can become fully-fledged retailers. New partnerships between carriers, airports, technology companies, service providers, brands and destination agents provide fresh opportunities to add value to the passenger experience while creating new revenue streams. In Istanbul we will have a dedicated “Ancillary” conference, as well as a whole section of our exhibition floor dedicated to suppliers offering the latest products and services in this space.
The New Airport Show Istanbul is an event that celebrates and commemorates the opening of the game-changing Istanbul Airport. This show will tell the industry story behind the most important new hub between New York and Shanghai through a spectacular exhibition, and very a high calibre conference detailing how and why this hub has been built, and defining its centrally strategic role in global aviation.
The free-to-visit exhibition floor is at the epicentre of the show and we expect to recruit some 150+ exhibitors who will be showcasing products, services and concepts to inspire attendees.
The EXPO will include dedicated zones for various areas of interest, where you can expect to see and demo a wide variety of new solutions from suppliers, including established global industry providers, regional specialists and dynamic new startups. There will also be free-to-attend education sessions within the exhibition hall.
