Welcome to the Aviation Strategy Forum

IATA predict there will be 7.2 billion passengers globally by 2035. Airports and airlines are seeing consistent and sustained demand for air travel. Innovative plans for increasing capacity, operational efficiency and enhancing the passenger experience are at the forefront for all major strategic, technology and operational leaders. Major disruptive technology is already here, AI, Automation, and better data analytics will help automate many processes and leverage capacity to make travel more seamless. Digital identities, biometrics and facial recognition will improve flow and optimise passenger experience. All these vital components are already being deployed globally with some emerging flagship examples setting the standard which will all be covered across our two day residential programme.

The Aviation Strategy Forum using its ‘invitation only’ format brings together Chairs, Chief Execs, CIOs, IT Directors, Heads of Operations, Security and Innovation together with pre selected solution providers in a two-day residential format in a ‘country retreat’ setting. The forum promises to inspire debate through world-class engagement platforms, exchange ideas and collaborate with peers through pre booked one-to-one business meetings, speed networking and group discussions, sit with colleagues during hosted lunch and dinner, select and join the many discussions! Our own fully interactive networking model has been refined over the last 10 years to provide AI driven match making and live digital networking capability which exhibitions and conferences simply cannot replicate.
