ACI Asia-Pacific, together with the host Kansai Airports, have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak since it unfolded. Growing public concern and the severity of circumstances surrounding the outbreak have not eased off, with the World Health Organization recently declaring this a global pandemic.


Our foremost priority is the health and well-being of all participants and workers of the event. As such, ACI Asia-Pacific, together with Kansai Airports, made the difficult decision to postpone the 15th ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Assembly, Conference & Exhibition, scheduled for 21-23 April 2020 in Nara, Japan. Postponing the event facilitates our airport members and partners to stay safe and focus on the priorities at hand during this challenging period. 


The 15th ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Conference & Exhibition is now rescheduled for 15-17 September 2020 in Nara, JapanWe appreciate your understanding and patience as we sort out the necessary logistics and rearrangements to bring you a successful and fruitful event in September. 


We are gradually reaching out to respective speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and delegates regarding your commitments. If you have specific questions regarding your registration and other arrangements, please contact ACI Asia-Pacific's Events Team at   


Thoughts and well wishes remain for those affected by the outbreak in our region and global community.

The Global Industry Meeting For Aviation Leaders

The 15th ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Conference & Exhibition will take place in Nara, Japan from 15-17 September 2020.

In recent years, Japan has been enjoying booming inbound tourism.

Kansai, in particular, will play an important role as the host city for the 2021 World Masters Games and the 2025 World Expo. In such circumstances, we, as a gateway airport to Kansai and Japan, will continue to pursue excellence in hospitality OMOTENASHI to offer one-of-a-kind airport experience in the unique Kansai atmosphere and make our airports stress-free and exciting.

The whole Kansai Airports Group is strongly committed to tackling local as well as global environmental issues. In this respect, we have been driving initiatives to lower our environmental impact and promote harmonious co-existence between our airports and their surrounding environments with an aim to contribute to the protection of the global environment.

The 15th ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Conference & Exhibition will be held in Japan's ancient capital of Nara with more than 1,500 years of history. We wish to promote an open-minded exchange on the current business condition as well as the future of the airport industry while enjoying old Japanese traditions and historic sites of Nara with beautiful scenery of spring blossoms. We look forward to meeting you all in September.
