The 13th edition has taken place on the 16th of January 2018 at the Head Office of Royal Schiphol Group under the theme:
Limits Create Opportunities
Commercial aviation at Schiphol is currently reaching the limit of its capacity. With the upcoming conference, we want to inspire our visitors and give them the opportunity to look at the current situation from a new perspective: every limit also offers an opportunity for change. History has shown us that limits can create opportunities. An example of such history is that of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, KLM and the creation of the mainport concept. This enabled them to overcome the limitation of insufficient demand from the catchment area to fill the larger aircraft to fly to long-haul destinations. During the conference the current limitations will be assessed and new opportunities will be identified. The focus of the research will be on value creation, saving on capacity and passenger transportation in 2050.
