Welcome to GATE

The leading network of the airport industry

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


Sustainability, resource-saving technologies, and autonomous systems are having a major effect on our industry. In addition, increased passenger expectations in terms of safety and comfort are driving our members to make further progress.


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 interlink industry participants and stakeholders. Our members are global leaders with their products and services. Together, they develop the concepts and technologies of tomorrow.
