Meetings

Below we have listed the most frequently asked questions regarding meetings at Routes World. 

When and how can I request meetings?

If you are registered as a meetings delegate, you can request pre-scheduled meetings from 22 July for airline, airport, tourism authority and economic development organisation delegates. Routes 360 members can request meetings from 15 July. For supplier delegates, the meeting request system will open on 30 September.

After 30 September, you can access the on-site meeting system and request additional meetings. Find out more information here on how to use the meeting request system.

Where can I find my meeting diary?

Your draft meetings diary will be available from 4 September and you can access it via the Meeting System and the Routes App.

What is Fast Track?

Fast Track provides additional opportunities to meet with airlines, allowing you to have quick 5-minute introductions with your target airlines. Fast Track is open to all delegates and there is no need to register – all attending airlines will be sat at their designated tables in the Airline Meeting Halls.

Any tips for a successful meeting?

1. Keep presentations short and to the point… less is more!
2. Meetings are more than presenting information, they are about building relationships.
3. Understand an airline's network, fleet, business model, alliance relationships and strategy.
4. Present content that is visually appealing and easy to digest.
