11:30 - 12:30

This session will identify the top technology innovations heading for the airport and how they will fundamentally shift the ground handling business model. Leading Asian operators representing airlines, airports, GSPs and suppliers will discuss robotics, blockchain, augmented reality, big data and how these buzzwords translate into a frontline business environment. The discussion will cover the mechanics of the turnaround process, passenger journeys through the airport and how the next wave of business leaders, who were born in the age of smartphones and Google, could radically redesign our world.
