A welcome message from our host
The American Association of Airport Executives has been a true partner to airports for over 80 years. As a long-time member, I am proud to support AAAE and its efforts on behalf of the airport community. We in Phoenix are proud to welcome you to the 2012 annual conference and exposition, where you'll get a taste of the warm sunshine and all that the Southwest has to offer. Whether it be a round of golf, a visit to the Grand Canyon, an afternoon at a Diamondbacks game or a sampling of great Mexican food, there is lots to see and do. Please plan to join us. PHX: It Comes 2 Life!
