Passenger Terminal Expo 2017 – Show Review

Passenger Terminal Expo has come and gone for another year, and we are once again thrilled to have been a part of this premier airport conference and exhibition. Taking place this year in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, PT Expo is a global platform for airport design and services, combining a conference and trade show in one. Celebrating its 20th Anniversary, the three-day event saw record attendance, attracting more than 6,800 visitors, including CEOs, architects, airport and airline executives, suppliers and key decision makers from across the world.

Arconas spent the exhibition greeting friends, clients, and delegates in their booth where it displayed its expanding airport furniture collection. From seating, to power, to waste and recycling, these offerings echoed the conference’s overall focus on the future of airports, and enhancing the passenger experience.

Arconas’ booth was filled with many new products this year for delegates to experience. First, guests got a first glimpse of the brand new Bernù Aero Lounger, designed to allow passengers to sit back and relax over long waiting periods.

Also on display was our newest public charging technology, the inPower Flex 3, which was mounted under our classic Flyaway seating.


This new module 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.

Also on featured at PT Expo for the first time is Arconas’ award winning Morelli benches. The bench features cast aluminum legs with seats made of either all steel planks, or ipe wood slats. These versatile benches are ideal for both outdoor and indoor environments.

Like in previous years, Arconas displayed waste and recycling bins from German manufacturer, Auweko. Arconas has partnered with Auweko to be the exclusive distributor of their products throughout the the Americas. Delegates were able to see their uniquely designed stainless steel Temptation FF3 bin with clear panels. See-through containers have become a popular security feature for public waste and recycling bins.

On Wednesday during the trade show Arconas hosted a booth party alongside Green Furniture Concept. The party featured Guy Perault, a master chocolatier who demonstrated his artisanal craft for handmade chocolates. Back by popular demand from last year, he delighted delegates while they sipped on champagne and indulged in sweets
