UPCOMING EVENTS

FOD, Drones & Habitat Management 2021 SERIES

March 10th - 31st

‘With the end of the third session of the FDH&S [2021 Series], I wanted to provide a bit of feedback.  I felt the presentations were uniformly top-notch and the system worked extremely well for me. I learned a lot in each session, lots of new stuff on drones, new insights in wildlife, and John [Hutchinson]’s presentation on the Concorde disaster was amazing (similar to a conference presentation a few years ago by a member of the accident investigation team, but his view from a pilot’s perspective was outstanding!). 
The FOD presentations brought me up to date and offered a good perspective on new systems approaches. All in all the conference organizers have retained the sense of past FDH&S meetings in this new electronic format.’

Winter Ops 2021 SERIES

April 28th - May 29th

As the world experiences more extreme weather events, both airports and airlines find it increasingly difficult to predict, resource and execute winter operations plans. The inconsistency in requirements makes it tough for service providers’ and contractors’ service level agreements to deliver at a sustainable cost for all. Ever-evolving procurement strategies make it even harder for manufacturers and suppliers to deliver leading innovations at competitive prices.
Whether through the introduction of new processes or technology, the primary goal is always the same – aviation safety. As regulators continue to work broadly with the industry to ensure the safest standard and processes are maintained for all, air traffic service providers are working with airlines and airports to optimise the network schedule and build a broader, more accurate picture to help effective planning.

SWIFT SEPTEMBER 2021

September 1st - 29th

SWIFT (Summer Winter Integrated Field Technologies) the industry’s premier airfield conference, helping keep airports safe and operating efficiently and supporting the community.

  • Latest airfield technologies
  • Seasonal challenges addressed
  • Full range technical and operational sessions.
  • Network with Canadian, US and international airport delegates

 

This year, Aviation Events Group are bringing the conference directly to delegates’ desktops on behalf of the SWIFT committee. The event will run as nine virtual, interactive sessions over consecutive Wednesdays in September.

CARBON IS KEY 2021

November 9th - 11th

The latest IPCC report highlights the accelerated pace of climate change and the urgent need for the aviation industry to reduce carbon emissions. New fuel technology and aircraft reliability, together with international commitment from our airports can and should make a difference but will this be enough? In addition to this, the ongoing reduction in passenger numbers means that airports now have an urgent, financial incentive to operate more efficiently and sustainably.

The importance of safety, management and training also remain key to airports green/carbon-neutral strategies, mixed with technology including AI and IT around the airport both airside and landside to improve efficiency. 

Carbon is Key is hosted by AGS AIrports and coincides with the UN climate change conference, COP26, hosted by Glasgow.

AIRPORT A&I 2021

December 7th - 09th

Technology is transforming the aviation industry like never before, and Airports are at the heart of this transformation – leveraging automation and innovation to enhance the passenger experience and working lives of aviation colleagues, whilst improving operational efficiency.

The Airport A&I series has been carefully crafted to view, discuss and debate developing technologies and emerging trends in innovation, focussing on all aspects of airport operations landside and airside including baggage, passenger experience and safety and security, all of which will shape the future of the industry globally. 

FDH&S (FOD DRONE HABITAT & SAFETY) 2022

March 9th - 23rd 2022

When it comes to identifying threats and hazards, FOD, drones and wildlife all feature highly on the check-list. For every civil and military aerodrome, aircraft operator and regulator, safety and security is of paramount concern.
