Here we highlight five top features from the upcoming Virtual Expo 2021, including expertly curated conference sessions, interactive supplier showcases and case studies from 100+ industry leaders.
1. Expertly curated sessions in our new and improved virtual venue
This is not just another webinar – it’s a real online trade show and we have worked incredibly hard to curate an inspirational event with unique features, including a Business Transformation Think Tank, guest session from AirAsia, New Airline C-Suite Summit, Transformation Honours List, Airport Automation Summit, Digital Health Passport Symposium, Women in Aviation Leadership Summit and APEX/IFSA Board of Governors broadcast. We are really proud of the way our 125+ speakers and 40+ exhibitors have all worked with us so creatively to ensure the output really inspires and shares valuable learnings and visions around our “Relaunching Global Air Transport” theme. Also, the virtual venue has some exciting new functionality to take the attendee experience to the next level. We pioneered virtual events in this industry, and we are working hard to ensure we continue to be the best at delivering them.
2. Interactive supplier showcases, product launches and exclusive announcements through our virtual exhibition hall
The free to attend virtual exhibition will be at the epicentre of the show and will enable industry suppliers, from household names through to the most innovative startups and scaleups, to showcase their products, services and solutions in a dynamic virtual environment. Exhibitions have always been the most effective way for buyers to view and assess a wide range of supplier solutions and capabilities in a timely manner. Virtual Expo will be no different, featuring 40+ progressive suppliers and creating an innovative showcase of the latest products and services that can transform the end-to-end passenger experience and business performance, all of which are being showcased in inventive ways from virtual showrooms through to live product demos. We are bringing in a wider mix of exhibitors this year to reflect the changing nature of the industry – from companies focusing on digital transformation and customer experience enhancements (like Burrana, NEC and BagsID) to commercial innovation and health, safety and biosecurity specialists (like Reckitt, the hygiene conglomerate behind brands such as Dettol).
3. High-level case studies and visions from 100+ pioneers
The Future Travel Experience conferences always deliver top-notch, forward-thinking speakers – those that offer far more than just talk, having trialled, tested and implemented new processes and innovative technologies in varying industry segments. We are providing a platform to those who are taking exciting new approaches in areas such as sustainability, digital transformation & automation, end-to-end passenger experiences, biosecurity & sanitisation, touchless & socially distanced travel, commercial, retail & ancillary innovation, and many more. We promise to give you fresh perspectives on what is possible in a world that has seen a decade of change in just one year, and how to best power your recovery efforts and future-proof your next wave of propositions and strategies across our Auditorium Conference, OnDemand Speaker Zone and brand-new Expo Stage, which is free to all.
4. Leadership perspectives from 25+ airline & airport CEOs
This is a time when we need leaders to inspire and guide us out of the crisis, and we are delighted to be able to share deep-dive interviews on strategies for recovery and lessons-learned from the CEOs of United Airlines, Scoot, WestJet, Western Sydney Airport, SAUDIA, Etihad Airways, Gatwick Airport and Turkish Airlines. Also, thanks to a live broadcast of the APEX/IFSA Board of Governors meeting (which usually takes place behind closed doors), all of our Premium Pass attendees can hear from a number of the world’s leading CEOs – from full service to low-cost carriers – on what they consider to be the most important issues for the industry to address going forward.
5. Super-charged engagement and networking opportunities with the 135 airlines, 115 airports and 936 organisations already registered
All air transport businesses have changed dramatically, and we are proud to facilitate a truly global digital gathering to drive understanding of how this has impacted each of us, and how we are approaching business in this new era. The virtual event platform has evolved a lot since our last event in December, and we are now able to offer even more engagement capabilities to Premium Pass holders, including a pre-event meeting system, team video call capabilities and an auto matchmaking tool to ensure you can make invaluable connections with other industry executives around the world who share the same interest areas as you. Engagement between participants is our top priority, and we have certainly taken that to the next level at FTE APEX Virtual Expo 2021.
