Session one, entitled Developing Hubs in Asia and its challenges will discuss the challenges to develop international hubs in India and explore whether India could have multiple hubs.  This session will also take a look at whether Indian hubs compete with regional hubs such as Dubai, Singapore, Abu Dhabi and Kuala Lumpur and how important the Chinese hubs are in global traffic.

The second session, Developing airport infrastructure in Asia – Challenges & Opportunities; will ask what the main challenges that airports face are whilst also looking at what lessons can be learned from across the globe and which models work, where the money is coming from and how can the ROI for investors be balanced against the needs of airlines and passengers?

Session three, Chasing the Tiger and the Dragon addresses the fact that thriving economies and increasing disposable incomes mean that the outbound travel markets for China and India are amongst the fastest growing in the world, which destinations will capture these markets and how will they achieve this?

The fourth and final session entitled, Where next for Asian Low Cost Carriers? will question where next for the pan Asian LCCs?; who are the winners and losers in Japan, China & India?  The session will also take a look at the future for long haul LCCs and ask how will the LCCs evolve and will there be a shift towards hybrid models?
