Caroline Wilkie, CEOThe AAA National Conference is the pre-eminent aviation conference and exhibition in the Asia Pacific Region and in 2018 attracted over 770 delegates from Australia, New Zealand and internationally.

The program focused on sustainability, technology, security, customer and commercial aspects of the aviation industry. With increased content relevant to Regional Council Mayors, Councillors and CEO’s as well as the traditional Airport Manager related content.
