2011 Airport Roundtable - Chicago

November 14-16, 2011

New!  Check out our updated agenda!


Listen, Learn, Share 

Please join us as we continue the popular Airport Roundtable Series in 2011!  

 The Roundtable program is designed to help airport professionals share ideas and concepts in the areas of Marketing and Air Service Development. You’ll interact with industry counterparts in an intimate, non-intimidating setting. 

Each year, attendees share ideas related to the marketing of their airports to consumers, as well as airlines. From best practices to unique challenges, it’s all on the table and open for discussion. Each participant is given the opportunity to share, and feedback from the group is highly encouraged. As a participant, you’ll learn from your colleagues as they learn from you.

Joining us this year to talk about what is going on at United Airlines will be:

  • Jim Ferea - Managing Director, Domestic Network Planning
  • Mark Krolick - Managing Director, Mileage Plus Member Insight and Analytics
  • Tim O'Malley - Managing Director, Pricing & Revenue Management 

In additon to the United speakers, tentative agenda topics include:

  • Industry Update - Will Berchelmann & Brad DiFiore, Ailevon Air Service Consulting
  • Carrier Intelligence - What's Really Going On At United? - Mike Lopez, Seabury APG
  • SCASD Grants - Not Just For Air Service - Moderated by Kim Sippola, ATW
  • FAA Incentive Guideline Review - Moderated by Lori Hoffman-Sores, HVN
  • Around the Room* - "Share Some Slides - Crowdsourcing Good Air Service Exhibits"
  • Around the Room* - "Airport Marketing - Share Your Latest Marketing Efforts" 
  • Using Data to Analyze a Market - Joel Antolini, Seabury APG 

*Around the Room sessions are highly interactive sessions where attendees are invited to share their work with their peers, as well as engage in discussions regarding best practices.

Based on feedback from attendees, we’ve upgraded our venues for this year’s events.  We’ve also eliminated the rate structure that had some conference expenses built into the room rates.  As a result, the registration fee this year will be $400 to compensate for conference space and meals during the event. In fact, your registration will now include all meals during the duration of the event!  

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago!
