In just its fourth year, the recent Airport Revenue News (ARN) Conference & Exhibition broke all attendance records for any show in the history of the airport revenue and concessions industry. Additionally, the show featured an unprecedented number of exhibitors, furthering ARN’s position as a vital resource for fostering revenue growth in the airport business.
With more than 750 attendees and more than 90 exhibit booths, the 2008 show in Dallas, Texas, featured keynote speakers such as NBC Travel Editor Peter Greenberg and IHOP Corp. President & CEO Julia Stewart, among many other experts.
“The ARN conference and exhibition has become the leading show for airports and companies to learn about the latest trends as well as innovative strategies to improve their business and increase revenues,” says Pauline Armbrust, president and CEO of Armbrust Aviation Group. “Additionally, the show attracts high-caliber executives from both airports and concession companies, creating unparalleled networking opportunities, and we are very pleased to have become the foremost conference for the industry.”
The ARN show features three days of learning sessions covering industry innovations and trends. Additionally, an exhibit hall showcases the leading companies in the concessions business. The event is punctuated by an awards show celebrating the best companies and airports in the industry.
ARN is also proud to announce the Omni Championsgate in Orlando, Fla., as the site for its 2009 Revenue Conference & Exhibition. The show will run Feb. 15-17, 2009.
