We support our members and liaise with the Department for Business and Trade in identifying and capitalising on opportunities as well as informing the ecosystem around trade policy overseas and domestic.

  • BAG conducts regular deep dive workshops on BAG’s Priority Markets to pool DBT and member knowledge and to capture the information gained in market specific opportunity definition documents and UK Industry offers.
  • In addition, we are coordinating jointly owned Campaign Plans, developed with DBT, to ensure we have a focussed plan to make the most of available opportunities.
  • Campaign Markets – significant opportunity accessible to the UK where DBT / BAG can make a difference.
  • Continue to Support – known markets with potential opportunities and strong intelligence.

Our Business Intelligence Centre WikiBAG is the central location for all members to share business related opportunities.

  • Offers the latest information on airport projects across the world, bringing together intelligence gathered from Members, missions, and our network of airport and aviation contacts
  • Provides comprehensive overview of potential programmes and projects from planning to operation and will keep Members ahead of the game when identifying potential opportunities
  • Sales Leads & Tenders are also available for BAG Members


The Business Intelligence & Missions Working Groups were asked by the BAG Board to try and collect as much intelligence as they can to gather on what is happening in the market. The Board agreed to focus these discussions onto the following topics:

  • What’s happening at UK airports. We are hearing of capital plans being put back. When might some of those come back, in what form etc.
  • What’s happening in the International markets, particularly in the priority markets we set for this year in discussion with DBT. Based on what we learn should we be resetting those priorities or focusing on other opportunities

We are publishing regular Business Intelligence Updates which are released via the BAG website and shared with our membership.


“If we can share knowledge, share the data in the way of programmes, projects being undertaken, right from master plan through to delivery and handover, these opportunities can help all BAG members…. there are a number of suppliers and a number manufactures that are doing some great work, very innovative work in the industry and for me to be able to get them meeting clients, being able to see the opportunities are for them, not only in the UK industry but world-wide, meets massive benefits…”

Tim Walder, TWW Solutions, BAG Deputy Chair

What our members say

Marie/Denis, Mad4
One of last week’s highlights was attending the BAG Summer Seminar and evening reception. We found that it was very engaging, very well organised, venue was spot on and everyone was so friendly. Loved engaging with everyone in such a relaxed environment, lots of funny stories were shared. Particularly liked meeting with likeminded professional problem solvers like ourselves.

Paula – Mentoring Proigramme
“The BAG mentoring programme has been a game changer in my professional life. Having a mentor has helped me believe in myself, with my self-confidence and to see things from a different perspective. My mentor challenges me on what is needed and encourages and supports me as well. It is great to be able to have an honest and open discussion with someone who has been through similar experiences and learn from her. I wish everyone could have a chance to have such a mentor!”
