Event Overview

Following the address by Australian Border Force (ABF) Commissioner, Michael Outram, on October 1, CEDA is pleased to host a discussion with Perth Airport CEO, Kevin Brown, to unpack some of the key takeaways from that discussion.

Join fellow Trustees to explore the future of aviation, discussing issues such as:
  • The reopening of Australian borders; 
  • The recovery of aviation business and connectivity to Perth and Western Australia; and
  • What international travel will look like, including new technology and systems to process passengers. 

This briefing is by invitation only to CEDA Trustees. Trustees are senior leaders nominated by CEDA member organisations. At CEDA boardroom briefings Trustees hear from an informed, expert guest speaker in a private, small group setting. Invitations to boardroom briefings are a valued benefit of CEDA membership.
