For the second year, SmartSky exhibited at the Airline Passenger Experience EXPO (APEX EXPO) as a Diamond Sponsor. This year's EXPO was held at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, California.
Our week was packed with educational sessions, meetings, and networking. SmartSky President, Ryan Stone, participated on two panels during Monday's Educational Sessions on the future of connectivity with input from providers, airlines, and manufacturers. Our VP of Airlines, Mary Rogozinski, introduced several panels throughout the day as part of her role on the APEX Association Educational Committee.
Our meeting schedule was active and we hope you had a chance to see our newly designed conference room!
On Wednesday evening, attendees of the EXPO took a step back in time to the 1920's at the APEX EXPO Networking Event, sponsored by SmartSky Networks. The Event was held at the Long Beach landmark, Ebell Mansion. Attendees were greeted by an energetic pair of mobsters, setting the stage for a thrilling event.
Flapper dancers entertained the crowd during breaks from the dueling pianos. Old-fashioned whiskey and heavy hors-d'oeuvres pleased the taste buds.
This year's Networking Event was the most well attended Networking Event in APEX EXPO history with over 500 attendees. Did you attend the networking event? Let us know what your favorite part of the night was in the comments below!
Thank you to our fellow exhibitors, partners, and friends who made APEX 2017 such a memorable event. We look forward to seeing you all in Boston in 2018!
