Formerly part of the IATA World Passenger Symposium (today discontinued), after a very successful edition in Athens in 2018 and in Warsaw in 2019, the 3rd edition of GAPS (Global Airport and Passenger Symposium) will take place in Osaka.
Have a look to the latest news of GAPS 2019 on the
IATA's aviation business magazine and the
air travel expected to double by 2036, the industry will not be able to handle the growth or evolving customer expectations with the current processes, installations and ways of doing business. Accommodating growth with even bigger airports will be increasingly difficult - if not impossible.
GAPS has been established to
examine the processes that touch the passenger journey, on the ground and in the air, and impact related airport processes and operations. The future passenger journey will not be remiss, and
delegates will have the chance to collectively shape future solutions through panel discussions, innovation sessions, and partake in the development of the future passenger journey storyline.

Osaka is a city in the Kansai region of Japan and also the second largest metropolitan area in Japan and among the largest in the world with more than 20 million inhabitants.
The city is known for its modern architecture, nightlife and hearty street food. The 16th-century shogunate Osaka Castle, which has undergone several restorations, is its main historical landmark. It's surrounded by a moat and park with plum, peach and cherry-blossom trees.
We should not forget that it is also a city with 1400 years of history. It has long been a gateway into the country from foreign lands, and it prospered as "The Kitchen of the Nation" in the Edo Period. This left Osaka with a wealth of historic sites, and a multitude of museums of art and history to introduce those sites.
