Clark Aviation Conference set

Clark International Airport as Asia’s Next Aerotropolis

With the world’s economic center of gravity rapidly moving eastward, there is increasing urgency to develop Clark International Airport into an aviation hub, and this is the focus of a two-day conference to be held February 2013 at the Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga.

“The Case for Asia’s Next Aerotropolis” is the theme of the Clark Aviation Conference 2013, a trade gathering that will examine Clark’s compelling case as an aerotropolis, an idea in community planning where airports serve as the center for new cities growing around them.

The conference, being organized by Clark International Airport Corp in partnership with Global Gateway Logistics City with support from the Department of Tourism – Region III, takes place February 21-22, 2013 at the Widus Convention Center in Clark Freeport Zone.

The event will highlight Clark International Airport’s critical role in easing air traffic congestion in Manila and driving economic expansion in Central Luzon. It will also identify infrastructure and policy developments at Clark Freeport Zone that are designed to attract airport-related businesses and investments. More important, the conference is a call for the full development of Clark International Airport as an aviation nerve center in light of the economic growth in Asia.

Heads of government agencies—including the trade, tourism, and transportation and communications departments as well as the Bases Conversion and Development Authority—and private-sector representatives will look at Clark’s prospects as an aviation and investment destination in Asia, even as they examine pressing aviation and tourism concerns and propose sustainable and long-term solutions.

Specific topics for discussion include:

• Philippine Aviation Industry: State of Play and Prospects
• Clark Today: Setting the Record Straight
• Twin Airports: The Aerotropolis Concept
• Aerotropolis Hong Kong: From Concept to Application
• Why Clark: The Business Case
• Private Sector Wish List
• Opportunities in the Tourism Sector
• Regional Best Practices For Full Service Tourism Concept

Conference speakers include Victor Jose Luciano, President and CEO of Clark International Airport Corp.; John Forbes, Senior Advisor, American Chamber of Commerce of the Phils.; Capt. Benjamin Solis, Adviser, CIAC; Greg Lindsay, Co-Author, Aerotropolis: The Way We'll Live Next; Mark Miller, Usec. Daniel G. Corpuz, DOT Planning and Promotions; and Narzalina Lim, former DOT Secretary.

The convention targets international investors, logistics and supply chain executives, tourism stakeholders, airline officials, import and export managers, and members of the academe. They are expected to gain insights into Clark’s potentials as an aviation and investment destination in Asia and understand better its increasing role in national and regional development.

Registration fee for the day-and-a-half conference is P1,200 for early birds, P1,500 for walk-in to include three snacks, two lunch buffets, giveaway plus a chance to win a raffle prize.
