Your ACI-NA Small Airports Committee Chair

Airports Council International-NA

August 23, 2013

Dear Small Airports Committee Member:

As chair of the ACI-NA Small Airports Committee, I’d like to personally invite you to attend the 2013 ACI-NA Annual Conference and Exhibition, to be held Sept. 22-25 in San Jose, California. As the airport industry’s premier event, the ACI-NA Annual Conference and Exhibition offers airport professionals an unparalleled opportunity to connect and network with colleagues across all sectors of commercial aviation, including airlines, governmental and other regulatory bodies, and the vendors and concessionaires that help our airports provide an exceptional passenger experience.

But perhaps more importantly, the Annual Conference also provides its attendees a wealth of educational resources and opportunities. Whether you are part of a general or concurrent session or experiencing the exhibition floor, the knowledge generated during the conference is the greatest takeaway for our industry’s leaders—especially our emerging leadership.

In terms of specific content that will be featured during the conference, I’d like to tell you more about The Ever Evolving Airline Industry educational session. As a member of the Small Airports Committee, this session is a fantastic opportunity for us to discuss the impacts of airline consolidation, the industry’s capacity discipline, the retirement of smaller regional aircraft and how your airport can plan for the future. I also encourage you to explore the full conference agenda and the entire range of educational sessions open to you.

I look forward to you joining us in San Jose for what promises to be a fantastic ACI-NA Annual Conference and Exhibition.

Best Regards,

Robert Mattingly

Vice President, Operations & Maintenance
