Conferences & Events

The Association of Airport Internal Auditors (AAIA) had its first conference in 1990 in Orlando, Florida, and, through 2019, hosted 30 consecutive conferences that have met the needs and interests of Airport Internal Auditors.  Then the COVID-19 Pandemic struck and the 31st Annual Conference was rescheduled from June 2020 to September 2021 in Clearwater, Florida, and was hosted by Tampa International Airport.  The 32nd Annual Conference was held during June 2022 in Orlando, Florida.  It was hosted by the Orlando International Airport.  Both were hybrid conferences, offering in-person and on-line learning platforms.
The 33rd Annual Conference will be held May 21st through the 24th in 2023.  It will be hosted by Salt Lake City International Airport and will offer in-person and virtual learning platforms.


Want to Host a Conference?
Airports that host an AAIA Conference generate an economic benefit for their community, have the opportunity to showcase their region and their airport, and provide low cost professional development and networking opportunities for their staff.  See below for our Conference Host Brochure to learn more about hosting a conference:
