Cabin Integration Symposium, delivered in partnership by FTE and Runway Girl Network

The Cabin Integration Symposium will be delivered in partnership by FTE and Runway Girl Network, and will take place on day one of FTE Global 2014, 24-26 September, Las Vegas.

The impressive line-up for the Cabin Integration Symposium – which will take place at FTE Global 2014, 24-26 September ­– has been announced and includes senior speakers from some of the industry’s biggest airlines, OEMs, interiors specialists and IFE&C suppliers. The symposium will be led by Mary Kirby, Founder & Editor of Runway Girl Network, and will include participants from Airbus, Zodiac Aerospace, Panasonic Avionics, Emirates, Acro, Lumexis, Thales/Live TV, Honeywell, Gogo, Global Eagle Entertainment and OnAir.

This intense, two-part symposium will cut through the marketing jargon and news hype to discover exactly how airframers, airlines, interiors firms, IFE specialists and connectivity players are exploring ways to more efficiently work together and drive innovation in the cabin. Attendees will walk away from this event assured that they are up-to-speed on where the market stands, how it is evolving, and what they need to consider as they endeavour to create a future travel experience for passengers onboard, while driving operational benefits for airlines.

The Cabin Integration Symposium will be moderated by Mary Kirby, Founder and Editor of Runway Girl Network, and one of the world’s foremost independent experts in IFEC business models.

Interiors Panel

This session will address both the successes and challenges of the latest IFE/seat programmes, and ask what lessons are being learned as industry relationships and products evolve to accommodate new levels of integration (which requires new levels of IP sharing). We’ll look at how stakeholders are working to try and avoid severe bottlenecks in the interiors/IFE space, and whether ‘complete cabin’ solutions might ultimately prove attractive to airlines, especially as further aircraft production ramp ups are planned.

Moderator: Mary Kirby, Founder and Editor, Runway Girl Network

Panellists:

  • Ingo Gäthje, Head of Cabin Design Office, Airbus
  • Scott Savian, EVP ZEO, the Design & Innovation Studio, Zodiac Aerospace
  • Neil James, Executive Director, Corporate Sales & Product Management, Panasonic Avionics
  • Chris Brady, Managing Director, Acro
  • Patrick Brannelly, Vice President, Product, Publishing, Digital and Events, Emirates
  • Jon Norris, Vice President, Sales, Lumexis
  • Speakers TBD, Thales/LiveTV

Connectivity Panel

This session will look at what can be done – from an operational, passenger and safety standpoint ­– when airlines view connected aircraft as a node on their networks. And it will paint a clear picture of what the connectivity linefit/retrofit market looks like so that airlines understand their options now and in the coming years.

Future Travel Experience Up in the airIf you are committed to enhancing the onboard passenger experience, make sure you attend the FTE Up in the Air conference, which will take place at our flagship event, FTE Global 2014, in Las Vegas from 24-26 September 2014. The theme of the event is 'Redefining the end-to-end passenger experience'.

The Up in the Air conference will focus on all things in-flight – including IFE&C, passenger and crew connectivity, cabin design, passenger comfort, personalisation and ancillary revenue generation – and we look forward to playing an important role in shaking up the passenger experience in the air, which has evolved very little in the last 20 years, unlike on the ground.
