We are pleased to be hosting the Global Aerospace Summit, which is an ideal platform for the industry to come together to explore ways of accelerating its recovery and growth, as well as to discuss the latest strategies and ideas that will shape the future of aviation, space, and defense. We are looking forward to welcoming our partners, colleagues and friends from across the globe, in person in Abu Dhabi, as we drive forward a digital resurgence for our industry.”

    The premier thought leadership event will demonstrate the road to recovery for the aviation industry following the unprecedented impact of the pandemic. The Summit will highlight the need for greater collaboration between governments and industry to support the future growth of aviation and the wider aerospace sectors.

    The event will cover a wide range of areas including sessions on commercial aviation, aerospace, MRO, defense, and space. The 2022 edition of the event will also include new elements such as a dedicated start-up programme, focusing driving investment in new enterprise and technology, and the Task Force Programme, which will address key challenges identified by the Summit Advisory Board as the most pressing issues concerning the industry.
