What brings you to the EXPO this year?


We always find it interesting to see what future technologies will improve our industry. This year we expect the expo will be showcasing concrete case examples of intelligent smart technology that has replaced legacy systems and delivered measurable impact and benefits to the industry overall.

Why should visitors come to your stand and what can they expect to see?


At the Copenhagen Optimization stand we will be showcasing our innovative Virtual Queuing solution for airports. It will also be possible to see a product demo of our software solution Better Airport®.

Better Airport connects the dots between all operational areas of an airport from curb to gate. It enables users to see ahead of time when and where bottlenecks of passengers, bags or aircraft will occur so that they can mitigate the flow problems before they happen. Put simply, it will give you more confidence in making the very complex, operational decisions we know you must make, and it will enable you to make them faster.

What do you think is the biggest lesson that the industry will take away from the COVID-19 crisis?


From our point of view the biggest lesson from Covid-19 is that the industry needs to be able to adapt to and handle volatility. Whether it be having the right tools, technology, processes, or people skills – volatility is a fact of life, and it is impacting our industry more than ever. If the industry is not well prepared for dealing with volatility, they risk losing money or missing out on revenue opportunities.
