Which loyalty experts can you hear at World Aviation Festival, Lisbon, next month?
If you work in the aviation or travel loyalty sectors, World Aviation Festival in Lisbon should be on your radar for next month.
Taking place from 26th to 28th September at FIL (Lisbon Exhibition and Congress Centre), it is the best place this year to hear from senior management at the world’s leading airline groups. Over 5,000 attendees will listen to over 500 speakers.
World Aviation Festival also has a loyalty track to its conference programme. Whilst the organisers don’t make a big deal of it, I have been to the last two events and – if carved out as a separate loyalty event on its own – it would probably be the largest travel loyalty conference in Europe this year.
Head for Points is the Official Loyalty Media Partner for the event and will be around over the three days. Our promo code gets you an exclusive 25% discount on your ticket.
That’s all, folks
