A global meeting place for airline CEOs

Join us on Saturday for the Welcome Party
Offering iconic views of the Adelaide Oval and across the River Torrens, the Adelaide Convention Centre will provide a spectacular setting for the Welcome Party on Saturday evening. In true Australian style, our hosts South Australian Tourism Commission (SATC) will provide a relaxed networking environment in a central city location, where delegates can then go on to explore the city.
Explore the World at Festival 25
New for 2019, Festival 25 will take place on Sunday 22 September, and will provide delegates with the opportunity to visit our exhibitors without any schedule conflicts. Meetings will start earlier on Sunday to ensure meeting opportunities are not lost and, exhibitors can have more time to showcase themselves to all attendees. Festival 25 will also provide the chance for informal networking but with a relaxed and fun festival vibe.
New awards categories
Another innovation for our 25th edition of World Routes is the introduction of 4 new Awards categories to recognise even more individuals and organisations; Individual Leadership, Rising Star, Overcoming Adversity and Airline Partnership. We will also continue to celebrate the exceptional marketing support provided by airports and destinations to their airline partners. This has already been well received by our community; voting has only been open for two weeks and has already surpassed the total number of votes from previous years!
Young Leaders programme
A new initiative for World Routes 2019, the Young Leaders programme has been introduced to encourage professionals aged 30 or under to attend their first Routes event, creating a unique opportunity for the industry’s rising stars to experience crucial business discussions, network with CEOs and gain unique insight into the trends currently shaping the future of aviation.
