This July should have seen global aerospace gathered together for the biennial Farnborough International Airshow: a celebration of all aspects of this highly innovative and economically important industry.
For the team at Farnborough International, a summer without an Airshow was simply inconceivable and so FIA Connect has been launched. Taking place on 20 – 24 July – the same week that the Airshow would have flown – we are creating a series of free-to-attend digital aerospace events.
Our intention is to deliver five days of high quality content, collaboration, thought leadership and industry insight; connecting the global aerospace industry during a time when we can’t meet. Highlights include:
The FINN Sessions – senior industry figures speaking about the topics that matter to industry.
Meet the Buyer - a strategic opportunity, connecting suppliers with buying decision makers at pre-arranged, private and secure virtual meetings.
Farnborough Friday – introducing a young and engaged audience to industry as part of an initiative developed to help address the skills gap. The day will include careers advice, inspirational speakers, downloads and workshops.
FIA Connect is partnering with ADS Group – the UK trade association for Aerospace, Defence and Security – to provide support, guidance and topical sessions of analysis, giving the best of insight and resource to help business keep up to date, informed and connected.
