Corporate, government and military strategies will be marked out at the Summit, which will address some of the key challenges facing the aerospace industry and discuss future trends at a time of international uncertainty.
A range of important issues will be assessed, such as the future of aircraft and new technologies that will revolutionise manufacturing, as well as the threats posed to incumbent businesses by a distributed, digital world. The event will analyse sources of game changing tech platforms and disruptive business models, in addition to focusing on their wider implications for the industry and related sectors.

We will look at what Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), airlines and policy makers need to do to enable people to thrive in a data driven, connected planet. Space, cyber security and national workforce development will all be high on the agenda.”
