AXS by YVR seeks to build a community and offer a unique opportunity to a curated group of C-Suite and Senior Leadership level industry innovators and disruptors. Our goal is to provoke ideas, create concepts and identify new ways to collaborate and solve key issues facing the airport industry.  While innovation is often embedded into airport conferences, it is rarely a high-point which is why AXS by YVR aims to focus on this topic for its inaugural Summit. Join the Vancouver International Airport (YVR) as we seek to redefine these expectations and the future of travel.


Vancouver Airport Authority is a community-based, not-for-profit organization that manages Vancouver International Airport (YVR).  Canada’s second busiest airport, YVR served 25.9 million passengers in 2018. Fifty-six airlines serve YVR, connecting people and businesses to more than 125 non-stop destinations worldwide.  In 2018, YVR was voted Best Airport in North America for the ninth consecutive year in the Skytrax World Airport Awards. Vancouver Airport Authority is home to Innovative Travel Solutions, YVR’s own innovation group, which is the leading developer and provider of BorderXpress, a kiosk-based self-service border control solutions.  We are committed to creating an airport that British Columbia can be proud of: a premier global gateway, local economic generator and community contributor.
