Arconas at ACI-LAC 2019 Show Review

Arconas recently returned from the 2019 ACI-LAC conference and exhibition in Bogota, Colombia. Airports Council International – Latin America & Caribbean (ACI-LAC) is the Latin America and Caribbean region of Airports Council International, the only worldwide professional association of airport operators. ACI-LAC represents 60 airport operators over 270 airports in 32 countries. This event is the annual gathering for the airport community, ACI-LAC members and industry delegates.

We had a great time showing our best-selling seating lines, which includes Place and Bernù Aero. Both are modular systems that are comfortable, durable, and easy to maintain. The Place seating includes generous tablet arms with seamlessly integrated wireless charging to conveniently charge your smartphone without the need for cords.

Also on display was our Nova C seating from Green Furniture Concept (GFC). The configurable winding Nova C series allows grand seating in scale with grand indoor spaces. The bench shapes a seamless seating line for natural flow control, while the body-conscious contours ensure comfort. The small footprint makes efficient use of the space and the configurability also goes into colors and accessories – every project can be unique. Arconas distributes GFC furniture to airports throughout the Americas.

For those in need of waste and recycling solutions, we had displayed the Temptation series from our partner, Auweko. Arconas is the exclusive distributor of German-made Auweko waste and recycling bins to clients throughout the Americas. Auweko litter and recycling bins combine form and function. Their bins are made from stainless steel, and galvanised or powder coated steel plates. The high quality products are particularly resistant to weathering and vandalism. They are easy to empty, with top and front opening options, and easy to clean and maintain. Options range from 1-4 openings, with fire-proof and vandalism resistant models.

Lastly, on display was a mobile counter from USM Airportsystems; a Swiss modular furniture company known for its signature design with infinite possibilities. The system is made of chrome-plated ball joins and powder coated metal panels between tubes. This system can be used to create a variety of products including solutions for security and check-in that fit the diverse needs of any airport. USM Airportsystems is distributed to Airports throughout the Americas by Arconas.

During the show, our Executive Vice President, Pablo Reich, also had the pleasure of participating in the world business partners CEO breakfast meeting during the show. We love being able to participate in the conversation around aviation and are proud to be part of this great organization.
