The aviation sector is evolving, and so is FTE. That is why, as we enter the new year, we are excited to unveil the fresh, new-look Future Travel Experience portfolio, featuring industry-leading events, expos, working groups, products and services.
Watch the above video to find out more about what you can expect from FTE in 2022.
Our expanded portfolio of products and services
Our hugely expanded portfolio now includes the FTE Innovation & Startup Hub, FTE Consulting, FTE Training, FTE Creative and the FTE Baggage Innovation Working Group, all designed to move FTE beyond solely supporting industry-wide advancement goals through to now also helping individual organisations solve the problems they are facing, and tap into new opportunities for growth.
FTE Consulting is not just another consultancy. Far from it. Our team and network of industry experts, all of whom have held senior roles within the aviation industry, are ready to work with you today to provide hands-on engagement to gain an in-depth understanding of your current problems and challenges; provide insight on how other stakeholders around the world are tackling these issues through our extensive trend watching efforts; introduce you to the most relevant and pioneering vendors and startups in our extensive global network; and then design and help implement cost-effective solutions to meet your ambitions. The FTE Consulting team is also pleased to offer a very limited number of complimentary Problem Exploration Workshops to help kick-start your problem-solving journey, so contact us today to express your interest.
The newest addition to our portfolio, we’ve launched FTE Training in response to the imminent and growing need to support the industry as it recovers from the global pandemic. Following 18 months of disruption for the air transport sector, airlines, airports, ground handling companies and service providers now have the chance to introduce positive change to ensure their return to full operations is achieved in the most efficient way possible. The FTE Training team has extensive experience in aviation operations and training management and our combined skills enable us to offer a full-service package including training course development, training delivery and training assessment. With a strong background in Compliance and Quality Assurance we can ensure a high-quality proposition is developed that meets the compliance requirements set out by the industry. Contact us here to learn more.
FTE Innovation & Startup Hub
The FTE Innovation & Startup Hub is the world’s first air transport innovation network. Launched in 2018, it is the only industry-specific network designed for the organisations and individuals who are at the forefront of innovation. Through the FTE Hub, we work with a number of the industry’s most forward-thinking airlines, airports and stakeholders to introduce them to high-potential startups and scaleups, help them keep their finger on the pulse of innovation through our virtual and in-person events, and enable them to play an active role in our unique innovation-focused community. In 2021, we expanded our membership and continued to bring our Corporate Partners together online and in-person to enjoy a range of positive experiences, from regular virtual events (featuring innovation keynotes, startup pitch sessions and virtual innovation roundtables) to an exclusive guided tour of the Virgin Hyperloop Test & Development Site in Nevada during FTE Global.
FTE Creative is our all-encompassing portfolio of digital products and services that can help your business thrive in today’s digital-first world. Showcasing your products and services in the most effective and eye-catching way possible is more important than ever before. From interactive digital showrooms, which enable your clients and prospective customers to take a virtual tour of your product portfolio, through to immersive marketing content, FTE Creative can help your business stand out from the crowd in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
FTE Baggage Innovation Working Group
The FTE Baggage Innovation Working Group is where the future of baggage handling is being defined today. Led by Andrew Price, FTE’s Head of Baggage Transformation, the Baggage Innovation Working Group has already brought together hundreds of innovators to share insight and expertise, and a number of them will soon participate in POCs to help put the ideas into action. Whether you work for an airline, airport, established vendor, early-stage startup, association or any other organisation that shares our ambition to improve and modernise baggage processes, we encourage you to get involved.
Industry-leading events in Dublin, Las Vegas & Singapore
In addition, our event line-up is perfectly positioned to provide a platform for the industry to collaborate, innovate and be inspired on the approaches that will redefine the future of travel in 2022 and beyond. The FTE EMEA/FTE Ancillary show will be returning to Dublin on 7-9 June, and will this year be co-located with the all-new FTE World Airport Retailing Summit and Lounge Innovation Forum. The show is truly a gathering of air transport’s digital and innovation leaders, creative designers and progressive minds who will inspire one another and reimagine travel together under the new ‘Scaling innovation’ event theme.
Following on from the success of our 15th FTE Global show last December, the event will return to Las Vegas on 6-9 September this year with a new theme, focusing on “Future-proofing air transport”. We are also excited to return to Singapore once more on 9-10 November for FTE APEX Asia Expo when the all-important Asia-Pacific market will be booming again.Contact us today to find out more about our events, products and services >>
