Welcome to GATE

The association of the German airport industry

Air travel is set to change greatly, and with it so will airports and their infrastructure and services.


Sustainable, resource-saving technologies, autonomous systems, higher expectations as to comfort and networking, and high security consciousness are having a major effect on our industry.


GATE has been active in the airport industry worldwide since 1992 and is the leading partner in many trade fairs. Our working groups and events network industry participants and stakeholders. Our members supply worldleading products and services, and are developing the concepts and technologies of the future.


We invite you to learn about our association. Become a member, and contribute your expertise to the development of tomorrow’s airports.
