Attendees will get a full behind-the-scenes experience; going up the Air Traffic Control Tower, getting on the runway, firing a massive hose and living it up in the Executive Lounge. They will then hear from Airport Manager Paul Martland and Cumberland’s Chief Executive Des Moore.

Grant Seaton said “I am delighted that so many people will be coming to the airport, the project is undoubtedly one of the most important to happen in the county in recent times, so it is vital for business owners to have a better understanding of it.

Getting insight from both the airport itself and our CEO will be invaluable to the attendees. On a personal level I really enjoy being a part of LA23NET’s original approach to the big topics. Flock consistently organise events that highlight people, issues and developments that are relevant to businesses in the county and LA23NET is a prime example of this.”
