Routes Asia is the only route development event for the entire Asia Pacific region. Each year, it attracts the region’s senior decision makers, positioning it as the must-attend event for all those interested in discussing new and existing air services and meeting with the industry's key players.
In 2020 Routes Asia is expected to attract over 100 airlines, 200 airports and 30 tourism authorities along with a number of other industry stakeholders from across the region to discuss air service development. The event consists of:
Airlines, airports and tourism authorities from across the Asia Pacific region and beyond 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 extra meetings can be requested on-site, using our On-site Meeting System or through the Routes event app.
A number of hospitality events, including the Host Welcome Reception and Networking Evening, along with lunches and refreshment breaks throughout the event, ensure you have plenty of opportunities to network with colleagues and industry peers. The Routes Asia social programme allows for business networking in a more informal environment in spectacular settings.
The Routes Asia conference programme will deliver exclusive insight into the factors driving change and opportunities in the aviation industry. A series of keynote interviews, panel debates and airline briefings will bring together some of the biggest names in the industry. Previous speakers include Alexander G. Lao, President and CEO, Cebgo; Pierre-Hugues Schmit, Chief Commercial Officer, VINCI Airports; Sharzede Datu Hj Salleh Askor, Chief Executive Officer, Sarawak Tourism.
Over 40 of the region's leading aviation organisations will be showcasing their brands before senior decision makers from all corners of the route development industry at Routes Asia 2020. By exhibiting at the only event dedicated to the region, Asia Pacific's leading airports, airlines and suppliers have a unique opportunity to promote their products and services to their key targets.
Routes Asia brings together senior network planners from the region's leading carriers, including China Southern Airlines, Etihad Airways, IndiGo, All Nippon Airways, Air China and Qantas. These organisations, along with many other airlines, utilise the event's efficient platform to expand their contacts and develop network strategy.
Airport companies attending Routes Asia have unprecedented access to their target airlines. Through a series of face-to-face business meetings, networking functions and the opportunity to exhibit or sponsor, the event offers the region's airport community a direct path to qualified audiences from leading carriers.
The event also attracts attendance from tourism boards showcasing destinations located across the region. These organisations maximise the event's platform for driving significant economic growth, often working with their airport partners to present compelling route development business cases to airlines.
