Aviation is at a crossroads, with major challenges facing the sector as a whole and airports in particular. Sustainability, capacity, and digitalisation – all of these are hot topics for airports and aviation in general.
EUROCONTROL has taken the initiative, in collaboration with ACI EUROPE, to tackle these big issues at our forthcoming high-level conference, Digitally Connected Airports – Meeting the Capacity Demand 2030.
The conference is aimed squarely at the policy makers seeking to steer our industry. We will bring together the C-suite of the aviation chain including airline CEOs, airport CEOs, Directors General of Civil Aviation and other senior aviation industry representatives.
The conference will look at a range of important issues including digital connectivity, runway capacity, airport integration with the EUROCONTROL Network Manager, disruptive business models, societal change and sustainability.
Challenges, expectations, opportunities
Our keynote speakers will share their views on the challenges facing airports and the future opportunities promised by innovative solutions.
Coffee, networking and floor show
Time to stretch and talk shop with your fellow CEOs. During the break, you will also be able to learn about the latest solutions developed by EUROCONTROL and industry partners to make airports more efficient and connected.
All airports connected
Speakers will discuss how to connect airports to the wider aviation network, leveraging big data analytics and artificial intelligence.
Food for thought
Disruptive innovations around urban mobility and drone detection and dissuasion pose challenges to aviation safety. Industry leaders will lead various discussion on these topics. Join us and contribute your ideas for potential solutions.
We give the floor to ELTA Systems, OpenWorks and Deloitte to pitch their visions of digitally connected airports. Each of the companies have five minutes to impress our speakers and high-level audience.
After a packed morning of discovery and discussions, charge up for the afternoon. Speakers and attendees will be able to mingle and exchange ideas over a light lunch.
Addressing the environmental challenge
Our speaker will address the hot topic of how best to mitigate the impact of the aviation sector on the environment.
Capacity through to 2030+ - the runway capacity challenge
Many European airports are operating at full capacity, and it will only get worse. Building or expanding airports won’t always be an option, what are the solutions and trade-offs?
Following a full day of innovative ideas and discussions, we will conclude the conference with an overview of what are the best next steps to take to tackle the challenges facing airports today and how to prepare for the ones of tomorrow.
