How can the Americas maintain its forward momentum in the age of Trump?

The Routes Americas 2018 conference prepares to discuss the biggest issues facing the region.

Following years of tourism growth to the US, figures show that inbound visitors fell by 4 percent in the first six months of 2017.

With the US also set to lose its crown as the world’s largest aviation market to China by 2022, is this the start of a long-term decline for the superpower?

And what opportunities does this create for other destinations and airports across the Americas?

The conference at Routes Americas 2018 will address these issues and more, including:

  • How airlines and airports can recover from natural disasters
  • Brazil and Argentina – can the sleeping giants recover?
  • The rise of LCCs
  • Airport privatisation – who really benefits?
