(ANAHEIM, CALIF. USA) – The 2013 APEX/IFSA EXPO saw record attendance of nearly 3,400 airline and vendor representatives – movie distributors, inflight product developers, service providers and more – from around the globe, with attendees hailing the event as a huge success. The EXPO was held 9-12 September in Anaheim, California, USA.

“The EXPO this year was amazing,” said Linda Celestino, president of the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX). “Seventy-four airlines from around the world and hundreds of vendor companies representing the entire passenger experience were able to reconnect and do business in an ideal setting. There’s a reason APEX is considered this industry’s most important annual event and a community of innovators dedicated to constantly improving the passenger experience.”

The show featured world-class educational programming covering content trends, portable electronic devices, technologies that are transforming the passenger experience, the future of comfort and cabin ambience, and advancements in catering options.

Attendees flocked to the newly expanded tradeshow floor, which this year featured exhibits devoted to Multimedia, Comfort/Ambience and Services. The show was the first time during which APEX and the International Flight Services Association (IFSA) offered full access to all attendees from both associations.

Additionally, airlines and industry leaders were honored at the APEX Awards Ceremony – covering the Passenger Choice Awards, the Avion Awards, and Honorary Awards.

The 2014 EXPO will be in 15-18 September, 2014, in Anaheim.
