SALT LAKE CITY, UT (October 25, 2018) – Today the Salt Lake Chamber, Utah’s largest and longest-standing statewide business association, announced Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian as the Keynote Speaker for the 2019 Utah Economic Outlook & Public Policy Summit.

As CEO of Delta Air Lines, Ed Bastian leads a team of 80,000 global professionals that is building the world’s premiere international airline, powered by a people-driven, customer-focused culture and spirit of innovation. Under Bastian’s leadership, Delta is transforming the air travel experience with generational investments in technology, aircraft, airport facilities and, most importantly, Delta’s employees worldwide.

“The role that Delta Air Lines plays in Utah’s economy should not be underestimated. As important as Salt Lake City is to Delta’s operation, serving as a link between coastal and mountain cities, so is Delta’s commitment to Utah’s capital city. If it weren’t for Delta’s partnership, Utah would not currently be undertaking the largest air travel infrastructure project in the country. This once-in-a-generation opportunity will have an increasingly positive impact on our future economy,” said Derek Miller, president and CEO of the Salt Lake Chamber and Downtown Alliance. “We are excited to have Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian speak at the 2019 Utah Economic Outlook & Public Policy Summit and look forward to hearing about how Delta intends to grow with Utah for decades to come.”
