Small Hub and Non-Hub airports take note, the 2011 Eastern Region – Small Airports Air Service Conference is scheduled for November 2-4 in Sandestin, Florida. Sixel Consulting Group will provide multiple opportunities for you to network and meet top airline planners in an environment in which smaller airports are not only welcomed but valued.
Airline planners will be available for social networking and private air-service specific meetings. In addition, Sixel Consulting Group staff and other industry experts will present information on various aspects of air service development including:
restrictions on airport funding of air service
sources of community financial support for air service
air service trends
the future of aircraft for small communities
examples of successful programs
On Thursday and Friday, meetings will be held at the Hilton Sandestin, with a diversified blend of industry experts, airline planners and executives providing air service information directly relevant to the small airports in attendance. In addition to group meetings, a major purpose of our conference is to provide scheduled time for one-on-one meetings between your airport representatives and the airline planners who make decisions every day regarding the service levels in your community. These personal meetings, which are invaluable for small airports seeking air service, along with group presentations and classroom teaching sessions, will be interspersed throughout the two days.
In addition to the "business at hand" we believe in the value of networking via social events at our conferences – and having a little fun while we are at it!
