STOP PRESS: The pre-conference Briefing Session - Supercharging your Ancillary Revenues on the afternoon of 25th April is now open to all conference participants. Those not attending the conference may also register for it free-of-charge!

Low Cost Carriers (LCC's) are widely perceived as having led the airline merchandising revolution. But, the rest of the industry has caught up and as everyone looks to the future, the challenge becomes "Are you bold enough?" With carriers like British Airways and LATAM about to charge for onboard food, the brand lines between LCC's and "traditional" carriers are blurring. With everything now on the table, now is the time to re-examine everything. "Are you bold enough?" to rise to these challenges will be the theme for the 11th Ancillary Merchandising Conference (AMC). Scroll down this webpage to see the hot topics and the Agenda in PDF.

The venue for this conference will be the Melia Palas Atenea in Palma, Spain. You can reserve a room at our special delegate rate by clicking on the tab at the top of this webpage for "Venue & Hotel Booking."


Register by credit card from $599 USD (airlines, travel & hospitality providers) & $999 USD (vendors & providers) through Friday 31st March. Note: Registration prices are $100 additional for payment by bank transfer.
