Eager to keep the aviation community well connected ahead of the digital-only Airport Show Hybrid+, which is scheduled to take place from May 24-26, 2021, the organisers of the event have shed light on Airport Show Digital+.
Set to take place from December 7-9, 2020, this additional event to be held ahead of Airport Show Hybrid+ will grant the global community an opportunity to network, learn and engage via a new digital platform.
This new digital arm has been designed to strengthen the show experience and seamlessly connect audiences across the world like never before, before, during and after the event.
Enthusing on the development was director general, Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA), HE Mohammed Ahli, who is also the CEO of Dubai Air Navigation Services: “The rescheduling and reformatting of Airport Show has been necessary to provide a platform for aviation industry decision-makers and professionals to come together to discuss the most challenging times in aviation history. Dubai is moving fast to pick-up lost grounds as the situation improves and it is important to push forward together globally to share best practices, new technologies and strategies to support rapid recovery.”
Meanwhile, group exhibition director, Reed Exhibitions Middle East (organisers of Airport Show), Daniyal Qureshi declared: “Incorporating a new digital platform has enhanced the user experience for both events coming up. The Digital Event in December will offer the opportunity for users to visit Digital Stands, schedule online meetings with instant chat functionality, watch On-Demand conferences, participate in Online Roundtables and much more.”
The new digital platform will be available for an additional 15 days post-event and will use Artificial Intelligence to provide recommendations to exhibitors and visitors.
The collocated, CPD certified Global Airport Leaders’ Forum (GALF) will hold over 20 online sessions over the three days of the December Digital event, hoping to attract over 1,000 delegates with two new conferences added to cover Airport Passengers’ Experience and Future Ground Handling, in addition to existing Air Traffic Management topics.
