SLM 2022

Airfield visual aids support a critical function by providing situational awareness to end users. Our pilots and drivers rely on accurate information from signs, lights and markings for safety. Airports spend millions to ensure their operations on the ground are safe and constantly consider new ways to reduce risk and eliminate incursions.

The 1st Annual Signs, Lights and Markings (SLAM) Conference is focused on that mission: to promote the discussion on how to reduce risk, increase operational effieciency and eliminate incursions. From lessons learned to new technology to networking with peers to learning from subject matter experts you are going to come away from SLAM with a new perspective and renewed energy about the role visual aids play in your airfield's safety.

SLAM will also offer two optional training courses immediately following the conference:

Be part of the solution. Be part of SLAM.
