Convening Events to Address Pressing Issues Facing Airports

In 2015, the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) determined that the airport industry would benefit from a deeper understanding and dialogue on certain challenges, even if an immediate solution is not practical. This led to the development of Insight Events, which convened airport industry leaders and subject-matter experts in various fields to encourage discussion and promote broader insight on topics of significance to airport operators. So far, three Insight Events have taken place. This article describes these three events along with highlights of the presentations and discussions that took place at each event. Event topics included: airports and reducing the transmission of communicable diseases; land use strategies at airports; and economic and social sustainability at airports.
