2022 ACC/AAAE Airport Planning, Design & Construction Symposium

Nashville, Tennessee | March 1-3, 2022

The Airport Consultants Council (ACC) and the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) are proud to present the Airport Planning, Design and Construction Symposium – widely known as the preeminent technical event of the year where attendees learn about the latest information and developments affecting the industry.


The ACC/AAAE Airport Planning, Design and Construction Symposium offers highly technical content for airport professionals of all disciplines and experience levels. Workshops include a balanced mix of presentations and interactive discussions between subject matter experts and participants on a broad range of topics. Technical tracks cover planning, terminal/landside, engineering/airside, and program management/construction management, as well as two mini-tracks featuring interactive workshops on the airport terminal of the future, and workshops on enhancing diversity at the workplace and in airport projects. Sustainability, IT, security, and the latest in airport research will be incorporated into the program and designated through icons to help inform your session selections. Plenary sessions and a keynote luncheon will cover new trends and innovations that will impact airport professionals today and into the future. The symposium also features a robust program for aviation young professionals, including technical training and opportunities for professional development.

Who Should Attend

The symposium is geared for airport professionals involved in planning, environmental issues, architecture, engineering, program and construction management, security, IT and airport operations. Additionally, the symposium is a fantastic event for young airport professionals to gain awareness of key challenges and solutions through the dedicated YP track.
