IAP CoP AIRPORT LABS
The IAP CoP Airport Labs for International Airport Professionals (IAPs) share expertise on specific best practices in various functional areas of airport management in a face-to-face setting. These two-day highly interactive workshops offer small groups of IAPs the opportunity to discuss, collaborate, and learn from airport professionals that have demonstrated leadership in a specific airport subject.
- Show and Tell Labs
When an airport has been recognised as being best-in-class in an area, it can be useful for others to see firsthand how things are done. In this scenario, the host will be sharing a lot of its knowledge, and the hope is that it will get some feedback that will be useful to them as well.
- Problem Solving Labs
Airports experience ongoing challenges which benefit from analysis and input of industry professionals. Hosting a Problem Solving Lab can provide the host airport with the opportunity to invite industry leaders to help them resolve their challenge. The airport benefits from the perspective of a diverse team of airport professionals and it also serves the participants in allowing them to solve an issue they may similarly face or face in the future.
- Event Driven Labs
Commercial sponsors, working in an airport environment, have an option to demonstrate and discuss issues regarding specific technology or products available to airports. In this case, it is important that sponsors work with a host airport to clearly define guidelines to ensure the Airport Lab follows the activity format and focuses, first and foremost on learning and developing best practices within an airport environment.
