ATNS AVI Afrique Africa Aviation Summit to take place in October

Posted 9 October 2017 · Add Comment

The 6th ATNS AVI Afrique Africa Aviation Summit, will take place at the CSIR International Convention Centre, Pretoria from 25-26 October 2017.

Earlier this year, the International Air Traffic Transport Association announced that the top 10 fastest growing world markets for air travel over the next 20 years would be in Africa.

The event offers those organisations wishing to engage with global and African air navigation service providers, civil aviation personnel, researchers and thought leaders an opportunity to exhibit or sponsor an event and make valuable connections, as Africa’s air traffic industry continues to grow.

A new feature is being introduced; AVI Connect whereby attendees can request a direct meeting with delegates from other countries to further explore collaboration opportunities.

The Summit will explore collaboration opportunities between the major original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and SMMEs in African countries, which could accelerate the growth of the aviation sector. Of particular interest is the drive to expand the interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), particularly amongst women in Africa and encourage youth and women to enter the aviation space. 

As the ATNS AVI Afrique Africa Aviation Summit explores aviation innovation and sustainability, sponsors will have the opportunity to see their brand ‘lift off’ and join the eminent sponsors that are currently on board. Sponsors include ADB SAFEGATE, Thales, Airports Company South Africa, South African Civil Aviation Authority and Tellumat.
