New ideas offer solutions to important issues pertaining to snow removal and the many tasks associated with it! The International Aviation Snow Symposium conducts an Idea Corner, which is fashioned after the American Association of Airport Executives Idea Corner held at the Annual Conference each year. Our Idea Corner is open to anyone in airport management, operations or maintenance. Judging is by ballot during the Snow Symposium. First place will receive $300, second place will receive $200 and third place will receive $100.
Ideas that are entered are displayed on a continous loop on a video screen thoughout the event. Your submissions should be sent via video, powerpoint or photo format by April 14th, 2017. The video you submit will need to be no longer than 1.5 minutes and should include the development and operation of your product.
