Don’t Just Talk About It…
Get Ready To Experience The Future
At The 22nd Annual
Get the insights, perspectives, and forecasts you need to take advantage of the emerging opportunities and challenges across the industry…
The IAFS(tm) has set the standard for aviation planning events. It’s focused on data and real business intelligence that no other event delivers.
Two Days of Exploring The Future…
Real forecasts – And Real Planning Insight
The Summit is different. Very different from any other event. As our regular attendees will tell you – when you leave the Summit, you are armed with business intelligence and futurist perspectives that represent real competitive advantages.
The unique approach of the IAFS™ is that attendees have the opportunity to interact with airline and industry CEOs and executives. Instead of a string of panels, the Summit starts with the emerging trends, and we explore them with the presenters from all across the industry and the globe.
Tackling The Future. The Summit does not dance around issues. It’s known for its laser-focus on the metrics and trends that affect all sectors in aviation – airports, airlines, financial institutions, suppliers and labor. The Summit takes on the real issues, as-is, where-is, and with no regard for political correctness.
Whatever area of aviation you’re in, you need to be at the Summit to not only see the future, but experience it. It covers hot button issues including:
How will emerging new airline strategies – in the US and globally – affect traffic patterns and airport capacity needs?
Exploring aviation infrastructure needs – it’s all about intelligent futurist planning… not just building things
And speaking of infrastructure – what about airport funding changes… PFCs? Discretionary? Privatization?
New fleets – how will airlines take advantage of new aircraft capabilities. And what’s the outcome of continued retirement of small jets?
Traffic growth – where will airline fleet and market strategies result in meteoric increases, and how will these shift consumer travel patterns?
Globalization – It’s affecting all of aviation, in all areas of the country. Where are the opportunities for aviation investment?
The new “Parallel Airline Systems” – both in the US with ULCCs and internationally with entities such as Norwegian and Wow will drive tactical direction at incumbents. But where, and how
Not to worry. We’re covering it all. And a whole lot more at the Summit.
Aviation Leaders Will Be At The Summit. Be One of Them. And we’ll be exploring them with the key CEOs and decision makers from airlines across the globe. This year, we’re excited to have participation from
Southwest, Alaska, Spirit, Allegiant, American, United, Air Canada, Air China, Hainan, Hawaiian, TAP, Korean – for starters
As you might guess, the International Aviation Forecast Summit is a very intense two days of gathering new insights and planning intelligence. A lot of “pluses” such as:
Plus: the popular “View from Wall Street Analysts”
Plus: fleet trend forecasts from global aircraft manufacturers
Plus: the comprehensive Airports:USA® enplanement and traffic trend forecasts
Plus: The Boyd Group International Airports:China™ forecasts, outlining opportunities for US airports, communities, and businesses
Plus: Outstanding opportunities for networking with airlines, airports and aviation decision-makers.
We’re also planning some exciting pre-Summit workshops this year, including one on the economic opportunities for rural US airports. In fact, the IAFS™ Workshop program itself delivers more hard data and planning focus than other conferences in their entirety.
And A World-Class Venue. The Summit is at the Wynn Las Vegas Resort – one of the premier properties in that great city. And we’re excited to be hosted by the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority and McCarran International Airport.

China-Welcome™ Program Continues To Garner
Global Attention For McCarran International
The McCarran International China-Welcome program continues to get world-wide attention.
Last month, it was recognized by USA Today as one of the eight top airport amenity programs of 2016. This after less than four weeks in operation.
Now, other countries are starting to look at McCarran as the pacesetter airport in accommodating and attracting more of the millions of visitors from the Middle Kingdom. Even Turkish National Television has taken notice, with strong piece illuminating how LAS has moved ahead of the competition.
At BGI and our partner China Ni Hao, LLC, we are proud to have worked with McCarran in implementing this cutting-edge advance in airport international outreach. And, we’re now working with a number of other clients in tailoring China-Welcome programs that can make destinations more attractive to this high-spend leisure segment.
It’s a matter of aggressively looking over the horizon and planning to match the emerging international traffic trajectories. Let us talk about your airport and community’s China potential – regardless of size, preparing for Chinese visitors and Chinese investment is the next wave in airport development.
