пятница, 12 марта 2010

On 7-9 of June 2010 in Kharkiv will take place the largest regional branch event for airports and air carriers – Routes CIS Forum.

The event will take place within the World Route Development Forum, which is one of the major aviation events worldwide. Traditionally, the event brings together senior representatives of airports, airlines, suppliers, investors, international and regional associations, national touristic companies and journalists. Routes does not follow the traditional formats of conferences or seminars – the forum consists of the previously planned (scheduled) 20-minute business meetings, providing a real opportunity to establish new and strengthen existing contacts in the global airline industry. Those meetings are aimed to develop and expand the range of air routes.

Kharkiv will become the first city in the CIS, which will host the World Forum of air carriers and airports. The city has conquered the honorary right to hold the event from Russian airports. That became possible due to the dynamic development of the Kharkiv airport, which DCH Group (www.dch.com.ua) and its owner Alexander Yaroslavskiy implements within the preparation of the city for Euro 2012. Thus, the event is unique, due to the fact, that it will gather in one place the heads of all 260 airports of the CIS, representatives of foreign airports and airlines around the world that are planning to develop their routes to the territory of the post-Soviet union.

Along with the Forum Routes CIS inside the new terminal building of International Airport “Kharkiv” will take place the Conference and Exhibition of Ukrainian aviation industry - AEROFORUM.UA. This is the first and the largest event of such kind in Ukraine of B2B format, aimed to airport business development and international experience exchange. AEROFORUM.UA has several key points, including raising the status of the city as well as of International airport “Kharkiv”, signing contracts with leading airlines of the world, establishing trade contacts, creating the necessary platform for the development of the business-component of the Kharkiv airport. Industry experts will discuss plans for the development of airport infrastructure in Ukraine and the CIS, as well as talk about investment and management of airports.

Organizers of AEROFORUM.UA are International Airport “Kharkiv” and “Invest in Kharkiv” LLC, the general partner of the Forum is DCH Group.
