"Organising the GHI Digital Reconnect for the Asian event is important. Much is being said about a 'new normal'. It's timely for the community to share and deliberate ideas about how we're going to operate in this new normal. It certainly won't be business as usual. In adversity, there are opportunities. How we manage these opportunities will determine how successful we ride the wave of growth in the future. And, through consensus-building, we can create a vibrant and inter-dependant eco-system, focused on re-shaping and growing the business we love".

Yacoob Piperdi, CEO, Gateway Services, SATS

“The time to collaborate, innovate and invigorate our minds, our team spirits and our glorious industry is right now. The pandemic has presented an abundance of new approaches to age old problems. It’s in this environment that innovators come to life and work together for a common good. Giving us all a connected platform is what we in aviation across Asia look forward to from our friends at GHI every year. GHI Digital Recinnect Asia provides the ideal platform for enabling collaboration this year. Please come online and join me and my many great friends and colleagues and make OUR event great through this Covid 19 period.”

Javed Malik, Group Chief Operations. Air Asia

“Building on the success of the first GHI Digital Reconnect event in late 2020, we fully support the plan to hold the Asian Event in June 2021 as a Digital Event. The GHI Digital event last year provided a great combination of debates and presentations along with well-coordinated online meetings with airlines, handlers and suppliers professionally arranged with good technology and the professional support of the GHI team. It was well executed and did a great job in replacing a physical conference given the on-going constraints due to Covid 19. Looking forward to the Asian Event in June and hopefully a physical conference before too long.”
