WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND
Elevate 2017. We did more than change a name.
It takes a lot of people to get a plane off the ground, just like it takes a lot of people to support a passenger buying a ticket. Elevate 2017 connects all the people who create and sell an airline ticket.
From airline industry executives and leaders who will explore breakthrough ideas, new innovations, and technology announcements, to client success stories and intriguing TED-style presentations, you will be fully engaged.
Special events: All work and no play is not our motto
After experiencing the thought leadership and solution labs, you’ll walk away from Elevate 2017 better connected to our industry and well-informed. But we also know how important it is for attendees to have a chance to relax and network with their colleagues. These opportunities will occur on Monday evening during our reception to welcome guests, on Tuesday with a live show and dinner at the Elevate 2017 pavilion, and during the first-ever Women in Aviation and Developer networking luncheons.
What’s changed? The name is more than just a word
A new name; a new experience. During Elevate 2017 you’ll may notice some format changes, including new, inspiring TED-style talks from executives and leaders in our industry. You’ll witness idea-makers vie for bragging rights in our innovation forum, get your hands on development in our Solution Labs, test our products at the Expo, and hear industry experts speak.
New location: Heart of the DC Technology Corridor
Located in the heart of the DC Technology Corridor, the Hyatt Regency in Reston, Virginia, will be home to Elevate 2017. Step outside the Hyatt’s front door to experience 36 different dining options from comfort food to classic French fare, and one of the best shopping experiences in the DC area.
Connections make the airline world go ‘round
83% of attendees in 2016 said networking and connecting were one of the main reasons for attending. Whether during the evening cocktail party, breakfast, lunch, live concert, or even in the hotel elevator, take the opportunity to reach out to an ATPCO employee and reserve a Connection Meeting Space to discuss your specific needs.
