WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 13th-14th, 2018) – Dennis Yap, President of DY Consultants, along with Denis Verdier, Manager, Terminal Planning, presented solutions for smart and efficient airports at the China Airport Operations Training Program in Washington D.C. this past September.
The event was organized by the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) to host senior airport officials from the Airports Division of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC). These seminars were held with the intent to introduce U.S. technologies related to emergency preparedness to the Chinese delegation. Smart and efficient airport solutions were also discussed amongst the topics covered.
On the first day, a business roundtable for U.S. companies took place. During this roundtable upcoming opportunities were introduced and attendees were able to form new partnerships with key decision-makers. The topics for discussion included cutting-edge U.S technologies that can support China’s aviation goals; China’s plans for national airport expansion, and CAACs plans for new Emergency Response Centers. On the second day of the program, DY Consultants shared their expertise and knowledge for smart and efficient airports with the Chinese delegates. This presentation managed to engage its audience and resulted with insightful discussions amongst attendees.
It was an honor for DY to be part of this event and have had the opportunity to connect with Chinese aviation leaders. We look forward to being able to share our insight on airport technologies in the future.
