WAI Fast Pass has become an important part of the annual conference over the last few years as more and more attendees are seeking to network with airline representatives to discuss hiring. The system was put in place in 2014 to alleviate long lines in the exhibit hall and help provide a more enjoyable conference experience for all attendees. As part of the continuous improvement of the program, WAI will be offering Fast Pass appointments Wednesday, March 9, through noon Friday, March 11, only in 2016. If participants are not attending the full conference, a Wednesday-only registration option is available. The point system instituted in 2015 to give longtime members and early conference registrants priority in scheduling Fast Pass time slots will continue.
