First Time Attendees

Routes Silk Road is the annual gathering of air service decision makers for the Silk Road region. It attracts the region’s senior decision makers positioning it as the must attend event for all those interested in meeting with the industry's key players. The event consists of four main elements:


Airlines, airports and tourism authorities from the Silk Road region have the opportunity to meet and discuss both new market opportunities and existing services at pre-scheduled Face-to-Face meetings. These meetings are arranged online prior to the event based on delegate requests, and a personal diary is issued on arrival.


Routes events encourage all delegates to network as much as possible and this is facilitated in a number of ways:

  • Formal Face-to-Face meetings either pre-scheduled or arranged via the on-site Extra Meetings System that allows all delegates to request meetings with other delegates during the event itself;
  • A number of hospitality events including the Host Welcome Reception and Networking Evening along with lunches and refreshment breaks during the working days of the event. This social programme allows business networking in a more informal environment;
