Thank you all

for making 2016 a success.

We hope to see you in 2017

8 - 9

February 2017



Change today is happening ten times faster and at 300 times the scale, or roughly 3,000 times the impact compared with the Industrial Revolution. We all know that these disruptions are happening, but most of us do not yet comprehend their full magnitude and the effects that will result. The Hamburg Aviation Conference is a global think tank bringing together aviation with other travel stakeholders and with other industries as well as academics from universities to discuss hot topics from diverse angles. It is a very pesronal event, with a limited number of senior executives and thought leaders to allow best possible networking. 

We are working on the program and would be delighted to get your feedback about it. In the meantime, here a short summary of our impressive speaker line up in February 2016, with CEOs, top leaders and entrepreneurs from the following organisations:

  • airports of Hamburg, Isavia (Iceland), Hyderabad, Tokyo Narita, Dublin, Tampa (Florida), Weeze and the German Airports Association,
