ACI-NA 2017 Exhibition Show Review

Our airport solutions team recently returned from exhibiting at ACI-NA, a premier event for aviation industry professionals, that gives attendees the opportunity to partake in first class educational sessions with some of the best leaders in the industry. Taking place this year in Fort Worth, Texas, ACI-NA World welcomed over 2100 delegates from more than 200 airports and airport authorities including airport directors, senior airport management, and commissioners. Arconas saw a big attendance at its booth where it displayed its suite of offerings for airport clients.

On Sunday during the trade show Arconas hosted its signature champagne reception alongside Airbiz and CNN Airport Network.


In addition to its traditional suite of seating, power, and waste and recycling solutions, Arconas also displayed products from its European partners: Auweko, Green Furniture Concept, and USM Airportsystems. Arconas has exclusive distribution of these brands to airports throughout the Americas, making it a one-stop-shop for Airport clients in this region.

The Arconas booth was also filled with our newest products from 2017 for delegates to experience. These included the Bernù Aero Lounger, InPower Flex 3, and Flyaway with integrated Amulet Ballistic Barrier.

The inPower Flex 3 features two USB Type-C ports for adaptive fast charging of personal electronics. The Flyaway seating became a highlight of the conference not only for the new power modules, but also for the bullet-resistant barrier integrated into the seat. Arconas recently entered into an alliance with Amulet Protective Technologies to incorporate their ballistic barrier behind the back cushions of Flyaway seats. The seating is capable of withstanding handgun fire from a .44 Magnum and provides shielding for vulnerable passengers in hostile situations.

Our booth this year also featured new lightboxes displaying some notable installations, including Place® at Montréal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport. The CEO of Aéroports de Montréal, Philippe Rainville stopped by our booth and of course liked what he saw.


Notable products on display at ACI-NA/World include:
