After careful consideration, we’ve decided that we’re going to deliver The World Aviation Festival 2020 virtually. Our primary concern is always the safety and health of our participants.
Even if the lockdowns are lifted today we ultimately feel as though until there is a sustained period of decline we cannot in good conscience run a live “in person” event. So we will be utilising our global community of 200,000 industry executives to help inform the industry, and give our senior executives the platform to outline their strategies for a way forward post Covid.
There has never been a more important time for the global aviation industry to come together and learn how to survive and thrive in a post Covid-19 world. We're creating a virtual event community to help us all rethink, rebuild and recover.
Because attendance is now possible from anywhere in the world, we’re working with our partners to invite more airline and airport executives, and expect more registrations.
