AAIA 32nd Annual Conference - A HYBRID Event 

Sunday, June 26 through Thursday, June 30, 2022 

Join us to engage with fellow airport audit professionals, exchange best practices, and sharpen your skills!

The conference will be held at the Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek and will be a hybrid event offering both in-person and virtual learning platforms.

Virtual attendees will receive the same great training as in-person attendees and will also be provided several networking opportunities such as member introductions, group sharing, and interactive chat during sessions.

    • 22 hours of NASBA approved Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits
    • Approximately $42 per CPE hour
  • Networking Opportunities
  • Planned Events include Welcome Reception, Monday Night Networking Event, and Tuesday Night Networking Dinner.  These events are included with conference registration fees for in-person attendees. Guests are invited to attend for an additional fee.
  • There are two optional pre-conference activities planned.  In-person conference registrants and their guests may attend for an additional per person fee.

Virtual or In-Person = Same Great Price

In line with our commitment to inclusivity, we are dedicated to making the AAIA 32nd Annual Conference as accessible as possible while also providing you an immersive experience, no matter how you choose to participate.

That is why the registration fee is the same for both virtual and in-person attendees.

Our reasoning is based on three priorities for our members:  Engagement, Flexibility, and Value:

  • Engagement:  The AAIA is making a significant investment in technology to bring attendees together in an inviting hybrid environment to ensure all participants are engaged during every session. All attendees will have full access to view the presenters and on-screen presentations and ask questions during every educational session.

  • Flexibility:  Conditions with the pandemic remain unpredictable and we understand some members are not ready to travel or participate in group events.  We want to ensure all members can access all the conference sessions.

  • Value: We realize that some training budgets are still recovering from the pandemic.  If travel costs aren't feasible for your organization, attend the conference virtually! 

    • Register early to save even more money.  Early-bird registration fees save you $100!
