IGHC Ground Handling Conference

Highlights from the 27th IGHC Ground Handling Conference

The twenty-seventh edition of the IGHC Ground Handling Conference (IGHC) was hosted by Malaysian Airlines, The IGHC Conference attracted over 750 ground handlers, airlines and solution providers in one location This year’s Conference attracted over 750 ground handlers, airlines and solution providers and registered an overall 98.3% satisfaction rating from attendees 

An important takeaway from the Conference is that, regardless of which part of the ground handling industry we are from, it is only going to improve and become a better, more efficient and a safer place to work by working together. 

We are encouraged by the positive feedback that we were able to balance the needs of our industry, and have achieved a good mix of networking, workshops and plenary sessions which suited most of our delegates.  We have also received encouraging support for our various initiatives, including the golf tournament. These will certainly guide us in our deliberations as we begin the preparations for the 28th IGHC in 2015 in Istanbul.
