The 4th Annual Airport Development & Expansion Summit

The 4th Annual Airport Development & Expansion Summit took place in Istanbul on March 29-30, 2016 against the backdrop of the ongoing construction of the “New Istanbul Airport,” with an expected air terminal passenger capacity of 150 million. The event brought together airport operators , civil aviation executives, government officials, construction companies, and airport authorities from across the world, which enabled them to productively engage with consultants, architects, equipment providers, and service groups in order to explore the market and support airport project development. Senem İşmen, our partner in the Transactions Department, participated in the event, giving an informative speech on “Traditional and Alternative Financing Models: PPP and Crowdfunding”, with a focus on availability and use of both structures in the aviation sector.
