Denver International Airport To Host Prestigious 2018 International Aviation Forecast Summit


DENVER – Dec. 20, 2017 – Next August, the aviation world will gather in Denver for the 23rd Annual Boyd Group International Aviation Forecast Summit, aviation’s most prestigious industry event.

Denver International Airport (DEN) will be the host, welcoming more than 600 aviation leaders and executives from across the industry and around the world to explore the future of global aviation. The Summit is the forum for these leaders to discuss emerging trends in the industry, and review the new dynamics that will shape air transportation in the future. The event will concurrently showcase DEN to aviation leaders as an emerging major access point to the globe.

“It is an honor to host this popular aviation summit, which will help the industry prepare for the future and share ideas to enhance the industry,” said DEN CEO Kim Day. “As a growing airport, we are always looking to improve; this is a great opportunity to hear from industry leaders and have the opportunity to promote the exciting things going on at the airport and in our vibrant city and our state.”

Boyd Group International is a leading aviation research, forecast and consulting firm that has created a Summit that is considered one of the industry’s leading planning events. It is a forum where airlines, airports, aircraft manufacturers, financial institutions and other key sectors come together to discuss the future and the exciting trends facing the industry. The Summit delivers forecasts for key sectors of the aviation industry, including passenger traffic projections, fleet trends, international cross-alliances, and airline industry strategies.

“Aviation has no borders.
