Meet Us in Athens

This year has been the year of travel recovery. The long awaited recovery of travel has been quick and a very good thing to bring back revenues to the aviation industry. However, a huge global side effect has been the shortage of manpower, especially in ground handling.

This situation sets a unique scene for the coming event in Athens that is bringing back all major ground handling companies and stakeholders under the same roof. It is great that 3 major players have joined forces to enable ground handling and airline decision makers to meet in person.


“The Athens Summit” consists of events arranged at the same time and place by AGS Global, Airport Services Association and ULD CARE. The events are:

ULD CARE 33rd ANNUAL CONFERENCE , which is a live, in-person conference showcasing strategic networking opportunities and latest developments from the world of ULDs and air cargo.

The AGS Global Networking Summit 2022 is targeted at senior decision-makers responsible for the procurement and selling of ground services including refuelling, passenger handling, baggage handling, aircraft service/line maintenance, ramp handling, catering and lounge services.

ASA Leadership Forum 2022, arranged by Airport Services Association (ASA) which is the globally recognized trade association for the independent ground and air cargo handling industry and is the voice of the 1.6 million men and women who service the aircraft on the ground.

The Spot: Grand Hyatt Athens

This high profile event takes place in Athens, a city with over 3.000 years of Greek history. It was a centre for the arts, learning and philosophy, and the home of Plato's Academy and Aristotle's Lyceum. It is widely referred to as the cradle of Western civilization and the birthplace of democracy.

Two Weeks To Go

It’s only about two weeks to the event of the year for the ground handling community. Airport College International COO Ari Ketola will be presenting in the ULD CARE innovation section how to deliver and measure quality ULD training, within a budget, and how to benefit from the use of Virtual Reality for training.

Pertti Mero, CEO of Airport College International, will participate in a panel, comprised of airline and cargo handlers, to discuss the challenge of finding adequately trained people.
