AIX Hamburg - Passenger Technology Solutions (2-4 April 2019, Hamburg)
As the official airline association for Hamburg, APEX has been asked to highlight the best airline and suppliers able to reveal insights on the latest technologies and innovations shaping the future of the end-to-end passenger journey.  This would be a presentation or APEX moderated event on the show floor and announced across the Passenger Technology Solutions show.  We would like to issue a call for presentations and presenters willing to step forward from all APEX members.  Airlines are preferred as presenters or co-presenters, but we entirely understand that some of the best innovations in passenger technology are not yet available.  Aside from being an APEX member, there is no additional cost to participate.
