National Airport Economic Development Conference

March 25, 2018 - March 27, 2018

The American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE), the Great Lakes Chapter AAAE, and the Port San Antonio are pleased to present the third annual National Airport Economic Development Conference, March 25 – 27, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas. The Land Development Workshop will be held on Sunday, March 25, 2018.

Airports play a vital economic role in the community. Increasingly airports are being asked to support a region’s economic development. This happens through a variety of ways – increased air service opportunities to attract and support existing businesses, partnering with local economic development agencies, or developing their own airport property to attract both aeronautical and non-aeronautical development. Airports spur growth and it is important for airport professionals to not only understand the airport’s role in a region’s economy, but also to position itself as a leader to develop those opportunities that present themselves.

Get more bang for your buck by adding the Land Development Workshop to your registration!

This pre-conference workshop will be an afternoon focused on the non-aeronautical development of land adjacent to your airport. Get educated on the legal aspects involved from Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell. Take advantage of an opportunity to sit face-to-face with FAA and get your questions answered. Hear from a developer’s point of view and find out what makes airport land attractive in their eyes. Finally hear from several airports who have successfully completed a unique project. These case studies will be from small airports with stories and examples scalable for many airports.
