IATA AGM 2017 will take place in Cancun

IATA’s Annual General Meeting set for early June in Cancun / Mexico


Dear Media Colleague,
The IATA Corporate Communications Team is pleased to invite you to register to attend the 73rd IATA Annual General Meeting (AGM) and World Air Transport Summit taking place in Cancun, Mexico, from 4 to 6 June 2017.This year’s AGM occurs as the airline industry is on track to deliver another strong financial performance, including covering its cost of capital for a record third consecutive year. But it also takes place against the backdrop of a growing movement in some parts of the world toward restricted borders and trade protectionism. This threatens to deny the benefits of globalization that aviation enables. And the air transport industry continues to be a target for terrorist and security-related attacks. These subjects, and others, are on the agenda at the 73rd AGM.

Program highlights will include

The IATA Director General’s Report on the Industry Updated Airline Economic Outlook Keynote address on Human Trafficking The CEO panel A full program of media briefings and the opportunity to interview IATA subject matter experts Accreditation and media facilities

The IATA AGM is an invitation-only event. Sessions are open to pre-registered, accredited press, who will have access to specialized briefings, full media room facilities, including a reserved working area, wireless Internet and printers.
