FTE Europe 2018 is the continent’s only end-to-end passenger experience event, with a dedicated focus on how technology and innovative approaches can power customer experience and business performance improvements. It provides a unique platform for air transport and travel industry stakeholders to collaborate closely to prepare for the digital opportunities and trends that will shape tomorrow’s travel experience both on the ground and in-flight. FTE Europe 2018, the fifth standalone FTE show in Europe, will deliver a memorable learning and networking experience to an expected attendance of 500+ air transport and travel industry leaders from across Europe and beyond.
Attendees will enjoy a unique event programme consisting of inspirational keynotes; the Digital & Innovation Conference; the Future Airports & Baggage Summit; the Connectivity & IFE Business Case Summit; a major exhibition of progressive suppliers and startups; co-creation forums; a one-to-one meeting platform; the Networking Party and Awards Ceremony; specially organised tours; and a plethora of industry meetings, which will take place around the show. Delegates will also have access to the ground-breaking and hugely popular FTE Ancillary event.
A deep dive into the new and emerging technologies that will redefine passenger experience and business performance on the ground and in-flight.
Helping airlines, airports and their partners to future-proof their passenger and baggage processing strategies.
FTE Europe attendees will have access to the Connectivity & IFE Business Case Summit, which is being delivered in partnership with APEX. With a raft of IFEC solutions already on the market – ranging from high-speed broadband to wireless inflight entertainment portals – and with Europe’s first integrated satellite and air-to-ground network set to come online, it can be difficult for airlines to decide which product and approach best suits their individual needs. By hearing detailed case studies from full service, low-cost, hybrid, charter/leisure and regional carriers that have already invested in a variety of connectivity and IFE solutions, attendees will be able to cut through the noise, learn from the first-movers and identify which solutions are right for their airline today, in five years’ time and further into the future.
