27 IAPs and AMPAP Associates were present at the 20th annual Passenger Terminal Expo event in Amsterdam (one of the industry’s largest airport-focused events), 20 of them in speaker or moderator roles and others in the exhibition. The visibility of IAPs was particularly noticeable in the session on airports facilitating tourism, where Vince Scanlon from Adelaide, Nandita Bhatt from Airports Authority of India and David Ciceo from Cluj participated sequentially. A later session on emergency preparedness also featured 3 IAPs – RJ Steenstra from Ft. McMurray, Thomas Romig from Geneva and Peter Adams from Aviation Strategies International (ASI), a panel discussion moderated by Paul Behnke, also from ASI and a frequent AMPAP instructor.
