Flying high in Amsterdam: highlights from #GHIAnnual, Ground Handling International’s 23rd Annual Conference

The Zafire team has returned from the Venice of the North on a high (not that kind of Amsterdam high!) after a showstopping performance, showcasing our Global Aviation Software Solutions, including FirstBag, FirstRamp, and FirstLoad, at our final show of the year. 

#GHIAnnual took place from 29 November to 01 December at the RAI Amsterdam and feedback about the event from Grant Winter, our Head of Commercial, has been very positive indeed.  ‘The best Ground Handlers and suppliers in Europe were represented at the event,’ says Grant, ‘we had a lot of interest in our products (especially FirstBag and FirstRamp) and a lot of fun demonstrating our systems to all the delegates.’ 

Grant and Commercial team mates, Rachel Wesson (Commercial Director), Chris Foster (Business Growth Manager – UK & Europe), and Claire Roberts (Key Account Manager), were thrilled to catch up with our friends from Widerøe Ground Handling and WFS whilst there, as well as other familiar faces from the Aviation industry and previous Aviation events at which Zafire has exhibited this year.  There was also a great variety of new – and savvy – prospective customers who were clear on their system requirements and knew exactly what they were looking for when they visited our team at Stand E33!  It certainly helped to have one of the best locations at the venue for the Zafire stand which was in a fantastic position for footfall past us.

This year’s 23rd Annual Conference provided exhibitors with some great opportunities to showcase their products through sponsorships and demonstrations.  Perhaps you were lucky enough to catch Chris Foster giving a demo of FirstRamp on 30 November from 15.30 to 15.45?  If you missed it, however, there’s still time to find out more about it and, indeed, all of our Global Aviation Software Solutions, including the latest versions of our core suite of solutions:

  • FirstRamp (cloud-based app for management of high-volume and time-critical turnaround tasks).
  • FirstLoad (Automated Load Control for instant clearance and paperless ramp – safety is paramount).
  • FirstBag (‘Download & Go’ SaaS-based baggage reconciliation and ‘One-Touch Reflighting’).
