AGTA Fall 2014 Meeting: - Phoenix, AZ
Developing Your Response to TNCs and Other Emerging Technologies
The 2014 fall meeting will be followed by the Leigh Fisher AAAE Parking and Landside Management Workshop at the same hotel on September 17 and 18.
Hotel reservations for the meetings can be made at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort at the very favorable rate of $99 s/d, and are applicable three days before and after our meeting dates on a space available basis.
The following topics are included in the agenda and will be discussed in the general sessions:
- Responding to TNCs
In Phoenix, AGTA will update participants about what is happening with TNCs. Do we work with TNCs, continue to fight them, or compete? How do we integrate TNCs at our airports? Covered will be the legal, social, insurance/safety, and economic aspects of working with TNCs. Experts in each of these areas will form several panels to inform and advise airports and operators on how to form their response to the challenges presented by these new carriers.
- Digital & Social Media 102 Applied to Airports and Ground Transportation Operators
Digital and social media has been a driving force for many changes in airport ground transportation – especially TNCs. Learning how this happened, how to track, and develop your own response to social and digital media for both airports and ground transportation operators will also be a central focus for the Fall Meeting. Noted media expert Perry Drake of UMSL’s Marketing Department will be presenting during the general session and continuing discussions on this topic in workshop/breakout sessions.
- Technology Advances in Equipment
Equipment providers will be demonstrating their equipment during the Fall AGTA Meeting and will overview what is available in the market and how the market is changing.
- The Emerging Challenging Technologies and Business Models for Airport Parking and Car Rentals
New business models and technologies for off-airport parking and “car-sharing” arrangements present revenue and operational challenges to airports and traditional airport parking and car rental companies. A panel of experts will examine these new challenges and offer suggestions as to how they should be handled and what we may expect in the future.
- Innovative GT Services at Airports -- Can New Technologies and Business Models Increase Ridership?
Can we turn kiss and fly travelers into GT passengers? What does it take? How airports and operators can cast a wider net to attract more passengers while maintaining profitability and not adversely impacting the current ground transportation operations? How do we improve short trip service? A panel of airport and ground transportation operators will present their suggestions and recommendations for improving existing ground transportation operations.
- AGTA Now and To Come...
David Bird, AGTA President will be discussing the current AGTA landscape and where the association is headed in the future.
