On June 17, 2022 Dr. Friesen gave a presentation at the 26th Passenger Terminal Expo & Conference 2022 in Paris with the title “Airport parking in the dawn of the age of ESG“. The dawn of the age of ESG – environmental, social, and governance factors – represents a true paradigm shift in the relationships between airports and their customers. Now more than ever, passengers are seeking safe, efficient, and sustainable forms of mobility. As passengers slowly return airports, airport authorities and municipalities have the opportunity to transform the airport parking experience to meet these new demands. Mobility hubs, EV charging or ride sharing concepts are some innovative notions whose applicability for making airports more sustainable is now lively discussed.
The Passenger Terminal Expo & Conference is one of the most regarded airport conference in the world with 10,000+ people from 130+ countries attending and 400+ experts speaking. Since its inception in 1998 the Passenger Terminal Expo & Conference has firmly established itself as a powerful international platform for the airport and airline sector.
