Where the world’s aviation community comes to do business

The Annual GHI is the global aviation community’s favourite forum for networking and championing ground service excellence.

Since 1999 – the Conference has forged a proud reputation as the ‘must attend’ event for aviation professionals from airlines, airports, GSPs and suppliers who want to uncover their next business opportunity.

Last year’s Annual hosted nearly 4,000 meetings between 800+ attendees with a near 95% approval rating for our prestige One-to-One Meetings Planner. 

The Annual is held in Europe but has a global remit with key buyers joining from Asia, the Middle East, the Americas and Africa.

Proven paybacks: Previous delegates reported an average saving of eight times (x8) on a full price delegate pass from meeting peers under one roof. Nearly 80% discovered a new business lead.

The right people in the right place: GHI attracts a qualified audience of senior decision makers with global buying power. Nearly 95% of 2022 attendees rated the quality of attendees as “excellent” or “good”.

World-class networking: Premium networking services including pre-scheduled One-to-One Meetings plus meet the Airline and Meet the Ground Handler Speed Networking.

"Many thanks again to you and your team for all the help and support. I very much enjoyed the conference, and it was wonderful to meet with so many people in person after such a long time. I look forward to meeting you again on the next GHI conference."

"Just a quick note of thanks for putting on such an excellent show. After 18 months of enforced isolation, you and the team definitely haven’t lost the understanding of what it takes to put on such an event – and make it look easy! I know it must have been a tough call to go ahead, but it’s great credit to you that you did and pulled it off brilliantly. Speaking for Damarel, we were so happy to be part of the first aviation event and what is hopefully the start of the great re-opening. Well done to all and please pass on my thanks."

John Boult, Managing Director, Damarel Systems International

"You and the team have done a great job. You dared to take the risk and organize the first physical industry event after Corona, and it paid off. We’re glad to be part of the story and look forward to continuing working together. We participate to get our name and brand out in the industry, getting on the radar of ground handlers and airlines worldwide. With the visibility we get at the GHI, we get that result. Thanks, and see you soon again on a next event."
