BAG is looking forward to our LIVE BAG Seminar & Evening Reception on Wednesday 29 September 2021 at The Brewery, London. [This is the date reserved for what would traditionally be the BAG Annual Dinner].
We are delighted to welcome Heathrow Airport, Gary Cutts Challenge Director- Future Flight Innovate UK and Global Futurist Rohit Talwar as confirmed speakers for the BAG Seminar “Innovation in Aviation”.

The event will provide an ideal opportunity to come together as the aviation community, for the first time since the start of the pandemic, to network with leading airport clients, representatives of UK Government and colleagues from across the UK supply chain and we are delighted that key stakeholders from Heathrow Airport, London City AirportLeeds Bradford AirportBristol AirportGatwick Airport IATA, Department for International Trade (DIT) as well as Department for Transport (DfT), United Kingdom have already accepted our invitations to join us at this event.
As restrictions lift and industry begins to recover, we wanted our first in-person event of the year to be as inclusive as possible providing an opportunity for networking to take place between members, their guests and other organisations active in the sector in a safe and relaxed manner.
The networking event incorporates our traditional Summer Seminar, postponed from late June, as a late afternoon session preceding the evening reception. The seminar is themed around “Innovation in Aviation” and will be in the form of a conference style session of about ninety minutes on key topics affecting the UK and international aviation industry. 
Following the seminar there will be a reception with canapés, bowl food and free-flowing drinks throughout the evening, providing ample opportunity for networking.

BAG Board Elections Update
Further to the recent call for nominations for the BAG Board we have received a total of six applications, all of which meet the eligibility criteria for Board membership. As this matches the number of Board vacancies this year, there is no need to run an election process and we will not be calling for votes. In line with the BAG Constitution the six nominations will be put forward for formal ratification at our Annual Meeting, which is scheduled to take place on 29 September, with names of the successful candidates to be announced at the evening reception following that meeting.
Welcome to our new member!
We are delighted to welcome 
DMS Consulting to the BAG Membership! We look forward to collaborating with you!

5th British-Irish Airports EXPO – in strategic partnership with British Aviation Group 22 & 23 June 2021

British Aviation Group backs 5th British-Irish Airports EXPO as “Shopwindow for BAG members” on platform with Heathrow, Manchester Airports Group and Gatwick.
British Aviation Group has once again thrown its weight behind the UK’s biggest airport trade show as it moves from Olympia to ExCeL London on 22-23 June. The EXPO, which typically comprises up to 150 exhibitors, six free to attend conferences, and draws over 2,300 visitors, has been closely associated with BAG since the very first event was hosted by Birmingham Airport at the NEC in 2016.
Commenting on the renewed partnership, Graham Bolton, Chair, British Aviation Group said: “It’s very important to us that we maintain our position as a Strategic Partner of the British-Irish Airports EXPO. The EXPO event is, by any measure, the biggest and most connected airport trade show in the UK and provides a unique shopwindow for the world beating products and services that our members have to offer. Our partnership very much allows us to think of this as ‘our home show’ – which is accessible to the widest possible cross section of the membership. I encourage all of our members to engage, get involved, and fully take advantage of this ‘special relationship’ and the valuable 10% exhibition discount available to all BAG members.”
Alongside the Hosting Airport Coalition, BAG is joined by the Regional and Business Airports Group (RABA), the regional airports trade association of over 40 UK and British Dependency airports.

Registration to attend the EXPO and the six free conferences is free-of-charge.
To exhibit (and 10% discount on published exhibition prices for BAG members) contact 
Steve O’Connor, Sales Director.
