World Aviation Festival

Our story


The World Aviation Festival is the world’s most important aviation technology conference and exhibition. The event is for the leaders of the world’s airlines, airports and their most senior executives in charge of the latest tech and strategies that are driving the industry forward.
In 2022 we will be moving to the RAI in Amsterdam to bring our community of 5,000 global executives together once again to be inspired by 400 speakers over 3 incredible days.  
The World Aviation Festival features speakers from the most forward-thinking airlines, airports and travel technology companies. 
With thirteen different conferences, the agenda covers everything from automation, sustainability, AI, ML, retailing, loyalty, digital technology, the latest airport tech and much more.  
At a time of great uncertainty for aviation, and the world itself, we gather the CEOs of airlines, airports, fast-growing industry start-ups and established blue chip tech companies to give us a good indication of where aviation is heading next?
Join us in Amsterdam in October 2022 to find out.






From Strength to Strength

The World Aviation Festival is our flagship event, growing year on year since 2003.
Due to the pre2020 global investment in airline and airport passenger technology the event has quadrupled in size, bringing in all types of global airlines, airports and industry tech providers.
Now it’s one of the world’s largest aviation shows. With so many people attending, you’ll have more knowledge sharing and networking opportunities than ever. In 2022 over 5,000 airline, airport and travel technology companies will join us in Amsterdam.
