The eighth edition of APG World Connect, the annual air transport conference, will take place from November 2 to 4 at the Fairmont Hotel in Monaco. This year’s theme is “Between Mass Transport & High Contribution: Where to Land?”
“For eight years, APG has been organising World Connect, which gathers APG members, airline top executives, managers of travel agencies, and the major players in the air transport industry,” said Jean Louis Baroux, Founder and CEO.
During this edition, APG will present the fourth award ceremony to select the best airlines nominated by international travel agents.
To date, 430 participants have confirmed their presence including 70 airline executives from around the globe. Last year’s conference was held in Marrakesh but the event was hosted by Monaco in 2014.
