Experts from across the industry will join forces for a panel discussion on airports and their relationship with passengers with cognitive disabilities.

The panel will feature James Fielding Smith, president, Smith-Woolwine; Roberto Castiglioni, chair, Heathrow Access Advisory Group; Eibhlin McGrath, regulation, compliance and project oversight manager at DAA, Cork Airport; Lawrence Rolon, coordinator for disability services, Los Angeles World Airports; and Samantha Berry, head of innovation and regulatory compliance, Omniserv.

The panel will take place from 9.40am on Tuesday, March 20, Day 1 of Passenger Terminal EXPO 2018 in Stockholm, Sweden.
