Cutting innovation ahead at APEX/IFSA and FTE Global EXPO
This morning’s ribbon cutting signaled the official start of the APEX/IFSA and FTE Global EXPO. Present at the ribbon cutting were Dr. Joe Leader, Group CEO of APEX, IFSA and FTE, and Daniel Coleman, FTE CEO.
Hosted at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California from September 19 to 21, the theme of the show is ‘Reimagining the passenger journey.’ Co-located for the first time, the trio of shows is expected to be the industry’s most all-inclusive and wide-ranging show floor, with more than 85 airlines walking the collective show floor of nearly 250 exhibitors, according to organizers.
“Co-locating the events brings together every aspect of aviation from the entire passenger journey,” Leader tells PAX International and PAX Tech. “We have digital transformation, airport customer journey, lounges, biometrics, inflight service, soft products and airline passenger all under the giant expanse of the Long Beach Convention Center.”
He adds, “Everyone is there and yet no one gets lost. It’s the perfect size and scope to deliver the advancement needed for our industry as we design the future for 2030.”
