I am new to this business but many years of providing services and managing companies. In all these years I have not attended a conference as well managed and structured as yours. It’s the first one I have attended and I found it very useful.

John A. Stewart, Chairman, Airport Handling

It truly is a highlight of the year to participate in the conference; always with an excellent organisation, always with an impressing trade show and always with the friendliest staff representing GHI.

After returning home I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU for your efforts and all the small details you do without many of us not noticing them while staying there, meeting the partners, enjoying the hospitality and not thinking of anything but our main purpose being there, spending the time efficiently with our partners. Why? Because YOU and YOUR TEAM is there.

Mario Mezek, Director / Nominated Person Ground Operations, Adria Airways

The conference is so efficient that there was not a single minute wasted. Always communication with ground handling or carrier partners, always have speech or panels to listen to with great interest. When I was expressing my such feeling to a colleague from a ground handling company, the colleague said with humour, " That's the problem. I'm exhausted. " I believe every attendee has acquired a lot from the conference.

He Min, Contract Management Manager, Service Standards & Development, Air China Cargo

Meeting new business prospects/leads as a result of attending this conference exceeded my expectations.
