Airports

JumpStart registration has two steps:

Step 1

Register with JumpStart Meet&Match to submit your wish list (before March 25, 2015). We'll then send your preliminary draft JumpStart schedule on May 4, 2015. The deadline to register for JumpStart Meet&Match is March 25, 2015. If you register after March 25, we cannot guarantee that you will receive your preferred airline meetings.

Step 2

Register for the conference, and proceed with payment and don't forget to book your hotel room. Please register before the EarlyBird deadline to ensure your meetings with airlines. Please note that the log in details to register for the conference (payment) is different to the JumpStart Meet&Match log in details.
