As part of its programme of support for The Gathering, DAA is providing financial and organisational assistance to enable the holding of a range of specialist aviation conferences in the Greater Dublin Area through 2013.

These conferences, involving international airports, airlines and aviation service providers, will attract upwards of 2,000 executive and senior management delegates to Ireland this year.


Airports Council International (ACI) represents the interests of over 1,600 airports in 179 countries and territories around the world. DAA is a member of ACI Europe and is an active participant on its various specialist committees.

In recognition of The Gathering, at least four scheduled meetings of these key committees are being held in Dublin this year, including:

  • April: ACI Technical & Operational Safety Committee
  • September: ACI Policy Committee
  • October: ACI Economics Committee and the ACI Environment Strategy Committee


The International Air Transport Association (IATA), the global industry trade association for airlines is holding its third World Passenger Symposium in Dublin in October.

The Symposium, the first IATA has held in Ireland, is expected to attract more than 600 key air transport airport, airline, aviation service provider and government stakeholders from across the globe to our capital city.


The Centre for Aviation (CAPA) is the leading provider of independent aviation market intelligence, analysis and data services and with DAA’s support hosts a major conference at the Ritz Carlton Hotel at Powerscourt, North Wicklow in mid-April.

‘Airlines in Transition’ is the theme of the conference which will attract up to 30 CEO speakers and a large international delegate audience to this beautiful venue.


The American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) is the world’s largest professional organisation for airport executives, representing thousands of senior management personnel employed by airports and support organisations across North America.

DAA is delighted to welcome more than 150 AAAE delegates and their families to Dublin in the first week of July for a major conference at Dublin’s Herbert Park Hotel in Ballsbridge.

The conference, themed ‘Transatlantic Options for Increasing Non-Aeronautical Airport Revenues’ will explore how American and European airports can learn from each others; experience of maximising commercial opportunities and income in an era of reducing core aeronautical revenues.
