The numbers that matter
I come to GAD every year because it's a great opportunity to catch up with the industry; meet friends and new acquaintances; to take the temperature of what's happening in the aviation business and to get deeper knowledge.
It's a great occasion - I look forward to it every year.
I strongly recommend it if you work in the airport world
