AERO Conferences offer visitors great added value

Extensive AERO Conference program focus on sustainability AERO Hydrogen Summit AERO Business Aviation Conference

The number of exhibitors registered for AERO 2023 (April 19-22) has already surpassed last year's figure. But this year's trade show can come up with further best performances: Never before has there been such an extensive conference program on the occasion of an AERO.

Safety has the highest priority in aviation. The exchange of information that can positively or negatively influence safety is therefore of paramount importance. With its extensive conference and lecture program, AERO 2023 is an ideal platform for the exchange of information for all those involved in General Aviation, Air Sports and Business Aviation. However, the AERO Conference program not only includes safety-related topics, but also presentations of new products and services as well as an inside of what the future holds for aviation stakeholders.

The conferences have become an integral part of AERO that can no longer be done without and offer visitors considerable added value with more than 50 program items every day.

AERO Show Director Tobias Bretzel says: "AERO visitors can look forward not only to a higher number of exhibitors compared to last year, but also to the most comprehensive conference and lecture program AERO has ever offered. The high-caliber and international AERO Conferences alone would be reason enough to visit AERO 2023, and as part of the introduction of the new AERO Safety category, we have combined all conferences and presentations on this important aspect."

At the inaugural AERO Hydrogen Summit (April 21, 2023), experts will present the latest findings on hydrogen as an aviation fuel and report on the current state of research and development.

The SETOps conference (April 21, 2023), which will be held for the first time in cooperation with Emerald Media and GAMA at AERO in Friedrichshafen this year after its premiere in Oxford, UK, is aimed particularly at existing and potential operators of single-engine turboprop aircraft, airfields from which these aircraft mainly fly, and authorities, to provide these groups with a common platform for exchange."

In the Helicopter Hangar in Hall B5, there will once again be a packed program of presentations on many aspects of helicopter topics on all days of the trade show. The program is organized by the German Helicopter Association (DHV).

Further highlights in the conference program are the panels “Future of AvGas” by fliegermagazin on Wednesday, as well as the AviAll event "Diversity in Aviation" event taking place on Saturday, but also the presentations on careers in aviation as part of the AERO Career Day (April 21, 2023), with which companies will provide information on requirements and prospects.

Various exhibitors, such as avionics manufacturer Garmin International, have created their own lecture rooms at their booths to inform pilots about innovations or answer questions about existing products. The trade magazine aerokurier will also once again present a series of lectures on the topic of maintenance in general aviation on the conference stage in the Foyer West.
