Global Aerospace Summit 2020
INSIGHT AND INTEGRATION – THE FUTURE OF AEROSPACE
Deepening access to the UAE’s aerospace and defence sectors, the Global Aerospace Summit has an additional host partner for 2020, EDGE. Alongside Mubadala, EDGE will be supporting the development of this technology intensive sector, and underpinning the key defence sector pillar of the Summit.
For 2020 the Global Aerospace Summit has a new theme – Insight and Integration. How will data driven insight and digital transformation enable aerospace to identify new opportunities and anticipate challenges? How will this knowledge be harnessed to drive performance, enable smarter innovation and ensure secure, sustainable integrated partnerships?
The Summit is an exclusive, strategic gathering of 1000 global aerospace industry leaders coming together to promote partnerships and cooperative development in the global aerospace sector. At the Summit you will join an exclusive group of established sector leaders with intimate and extensive knowledge in the aerospace, defence, aviation and space industries. You will take an active role in a comprehensive programme of thought leadership and strategic vision driven by over 150 industry decision makers who commit to speak at the Summit.
Since the launch of the Summit in 2012, major OEMs and industry players from Boeing, Airbus, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman to Collins Aerospace, Leonardo, BAE Systems and Honeywell have supported Mubadala and the UAE in developing a valuable platform to meet global industry leaders and understand how new technologies are changing aerospace and defence.
In 2020 there will be a strong country focus on the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). The Summit is an ideal industry platform for global entities to explore partnerships with the UAE and KSA, make announcements and generate new ideas surrounding aviation, aerospace, defence and space – with an extensive programme of important media announcements from the most exciting projects and new partnerships in the region.
The Summit features streams dedicated to the core component sectors of the audience. C-level panel discussions focus on the most important business challenges facing aviation, defence, space and technology development. Speakers explore how new technologies will revolutionise the sector and how the aerospace, space and defence industries serve as catalysts for global security, international cooperation, and economic growth.
