General Information

The American Association of Airport Executives and the City of Chicago Department of Aviation invite you to the Sixth Annual Airports Going Green Conference, November 12-14, 2013, at The Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza in downtown Chicago, Illinois.

Airports Going Green brings together aviation sustainability leaders and innovators, providing national and international airport and airline perspectives on sustainability. This conference covers all aspects of sustainability unique to an airport environment, from administrative procedures, planning, design, construction, operations, maintenance, concessions and tenants, to social responsibility.


The conference will be held over two days packed with sustainability case studies, innovations, and achievements.

We'll explore such topics ranging from collaboration and stakeholder involvement; to ACRP Research updates; to the finances of sustainability; to innovations in technology; and much more!
