Incorporating the 6th ACI-World Bank Annual Aviation Symposium
Spring, 2021

In the light of many considerations arising from the severe and prolonged impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global community, we regret to announce the postponement of the 12th Annual ACI Airport Economics and Finance Conference & Exhibition. The event will now not take place on 22 – 24 September 2020 but in the spring of 2021 – dates to follow soon.

Together with our host Malaysia Airports Holdings Berhad, we have been closely monitoring the situation in conjunction with advice and directives from local government and health authorities over the past few months. Given the ongoing uncertainties in the coming months, including but not limited to travel restrictions and connectivity across borders, as well as other health protective measures and restrictions on large-group gatherings, we have difficulty ensuring the delivery of a productive event.

Our primary and foremost priority remains to safeguard the health and well-being of all participants and workers of the event. We are also mindful that our airport members and partners would be prioritizing their time and efforts on resumption of operations and business activities in the recovery period. Postponement of the event would allow them to focus on matters at hand.

We wish to thank all the partners, sponsors, exhibitors and registered delegates for your patience and support. We will reach out to all participants individually regarding your respective arrangements. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused and covet your understanding for these exceptional times. Please stay tuned for updates on the new schedule and plans.
