After discussions with several airports related to travel/budget restrictions and careful consideration, the SLAM Conference Committee believes the decision to reschedule the first annual Signs, Lights and Markings Conference is the most prudent. We would like to thank our sponsors for their incredible support and all of those who registered and reached out to express your enthusiasm but ultimately could not attend.

Currently, the Committee is evaluating options for a future date - this website will be updated as soon as SLAM is rescheduled. If you would like to receive an email once the new date is confirmed, click Subscribe from the menu. In the meantime, stay well!

SLM 2021

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 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.

Be part of the solution. Be part of SLAM.
