Centre for Aviation (CAPA), the world’s most trusted source of market intelligence for the aviation and travel industry, is pleased to welcome back to Sydney the CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit on 07/08-Aug-2019. event is set to once again, attract the leading aviation and travel industry executives from Australia and key foreign markets, making it the largest strategic event of its kind in the region.

This important aviation summit is supported by the NSW Government, through its tourism and major events agency Destination NSW.

Minister for Tourism Stuart Ayres recognised the importance of the conference as a forum to address strategic discussions which are essential to ensuring NSW continues to lead the nation’s tourism boom.

“The aviation industry is a key player in supporting tourism growth in Sydney and throughout NSW. It goes without saying that tourism is a vital part of our economy and the aviation industry underpins its success and growth, so it’s important for us to constantly pursue and explore the key topics facing this category.

Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer Sandra Chipchase said hosting events such as the CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit has the benefit of showcasing our beautiful state whilst also driving overnight visitation.

“Attendees of the conference will be able to experience first-hand why Sydney is the premier destination for conventions and exhibition businesses, with iconic attractions, luxury accommodation and world-class dining.”

“Staging business events in NSW is a great way to encourage more visitors to experience everything that’s on offer – from our magnificent harbour city and its vast array of attractions to the renowned hospitality, events, as well as onwards to explore the spectacular scenery of regional NSW, we really are a destination like no other,” Ms Chipchase said.

CAPA Chairman Emeritus Peter Harbison said: “We are delighted to be working with the NSW Government through Destination NSW to once again bring the Australia Pacific Aviation Summit to Sydney, providing global aviation and travel leaders with a professional platform for high-level discussion on the future of our industry.”

Why is this summit so important?

As Australia’s airline growth grinds to a halt, after many years of expansion, there are widespread emerging challenges for both domestic and international airlines, airports and the tourism industry. At the same time, concerns are increasing of an economic slowdown after a decade of expansion, and business and consumer confidence slows. A weaker dollar is also generally positive for inbound tourism, meanwhile, the previously booming inbound Chinese tourism market has slowed to a crawl and other markets are becoming more subdued. All of these ingredients and more have feed into an intriguing formula for high level discussion at a vital time in the country’s travel and tourism industries.

As CAPA’s home event, the Australia Pacific Summit will: showcase airline CEOs from Australia and key foreign markets to share their insights on airline strategy and plans for serving Australia by air; explore the competitive outlook for the region; discuss new route opportunities thanks to next generation aircraft; bring together key analysts to understand the competitive market within Australia; and deliver a great debate on airport regulation.

Furthermore, an exciting new corporate travel programme has been injected into CAPA’s Australasian calendar with the new Corporate Travel Community Forums. For this sector of the market, we bring together informative and educational forums to coincide with the aviation summit and discuss IATA’s New Distribution Capability (NDC); the accommodation markets impact on travel programmes and new payment technologies set to revolutionise the way we pay for corporate travel.

The 2019 Summit will gather 600+ aviation and corporate travel executives from airlines, airports and suppliers in what is widely regarded as the largest, pre-eminent strategic aviation Summit in the South Pacific region. Understanding our industry is CAPA’s great strength and passion. Stay informed and connected with the region’s industry leaders, by joining us in Sydney for an event that is unrivalled in its coverage of strategic aviation issues.
