    ground handling conference 2020

      The recent escalation of Covid-19 cases in Europe, heightened quarantine measures and travel bans have rendered that ambition unviable. In short, worsening conditions mean we simply can't achieve the critical support behind the event that we need in order to deliver the quality of services that you expect and that we pride ourselves in delivering.

      We know from speaking to many of you and our industry advisory panel that there is a deep unfulfilled need to connect and share best practice with aviation colleagues at this crucial time. We therefore propose to serve that need more effectively under the current climate of Covid restrictions bringing you GHI's Digital Reconnect virtual event on 1-2 December 2020.
