International travel is projected to grow exponentially in the coming years. Major U.S. airports, including New York, Los Angeles and Miami – and emerging airports, such as those in San Francisco and Dallas – have invested in new international terminals to capture greater market share. As a result, they have continued to grow and reap the associated economic benefits. And they are not done. Many of these same airports are planning continued enhancements and improvements through 2025.

The future of Chicago, as a global air transportation hub and a major player in the world economy, depends on international travel and transport. And that, in turn, depends upon the City’s vision for modernizing its airports to ensure they are equipped for future growth and keep Chicago connected to the world.

Please join The Executives’ Club for a discussion with Angela Gittens, Director General at Airports Council International and Chicago Department of Aviation Commissioner Ginger Evans focused on international aviation trends, their impact on Chicago and what it will take to compete.
