The Trinity Forum 2024 will see unprecedented involvement by airports and airport groups worldwide, reflecting the growing importance of commercial and wider non-aeronautical revenues in the aviation industry.

The programme will highlight opportunities and challenges in both established and emergent markets, the latter including Saudi Arabia (currently seeing profound structural change within its aviation and travel retail sectors), India and Vietnam.

As reported, the Forum will feature a line-up of top-class speakers including Adani Airports Holding Chief Executive Officer Arun Bansal, who will be a big drawcard as he explores prospects in India and beyond as seen through the lens of this hugely ambitious latter-day giant of the airport world.

Also confirmed to speak at the event is Riyadh Airports Company Chief Commercial Officer Abdulaziz Al Asaker, who will present the opportunities across the thriving Saudi airport commercial revenues landscape.
