The Slot Conference (SC) is a working conference. Regularly attracting over 1200 delegates, from over 230 airlines and representatives of over 85 schedules-facilitated or fully coordinated airports this twice-yearly meeting is one of IATA's largest events.

As part of the slot process, the purpose of this voluntary assembly of both IATA and non-IATA airlines worldwide is to provide a forum for the allocation of slots at fully coordinated airports (Level 3), and for the reaching of consensus on the schedule adjustments necessary to conform to airport capacity limitations (Level 2). The goal of the conference is for airlines and airports to obtain the slots that will give them the best possible schedule to offer their customers.

The conference operating procedures are published in the Worldwide Airport Slot Guidelines (WASG) and activities of the Slot Conference are managed by the Worldwide Airport Slots Department
