27 IAPs and AMPAP Associates were present at the 20th annual Passenger Terminal Expo event in Amsterdam (one of the industry’s largest airport-focused events) with 20 of them in speaker or moderator roles and others in the exhibition. The visibility of IAPs was particularly noticeable in the session on airports facilitating tourism: Vince Scanlon from Adelaide, Nandita Bhatt from Airports Authority of India, and David Ciceo from Cluj participated sequentially. A panel discussion on emergency preparedness moderated by Paul Behnke, a frequent AMPAP instructor also featured 3 IAPs – RJ Steenstra from Ft. McMurray, Thomas Romig from Geneva, and Peter Adams from Aviation Strategies International (ASI).
