Airlines go premium for free
Future Travel Experience EMEA returns to the “Silicon Valley of Europe”, Dublin, to become established as the region’s definitive end-to-end air transport innovation show with an atmosphere, energy and audience like no other.
This high-level three-day event, focused on the art of scaling innovative ideas, is dedicated to new thinking and concepts, and combines an exhibition, extensive social activities, conference sessions, interactive workshops, pitch sessions and awards with turbo-charged networking.
We are delighted to bring the show back to its spiritual home in Dublin with FTE Ancillary, and we have big plans for 2022 which will see the show co-located with the all-new FTE World Airport Retailing Summit, and FTE Lounge Innovation Forum.
The show will look at innovation holistically and explore the most exciting ways in which digital, design, unique partnerships and collaboration can break new ground in the areas of operations, customer experience, commercial, product, service, safety and sustainability.
There will be a series of conferences featuring industry leaders, technology giants, disruptors, parallel industries, academia and startups from around the world, who will focus on innovation efforts around digital transformation, customer experience, commercial revenues, inflight innovation, operational efficiency, baggage, identity, future airports and sustainability.

“FTE is one of the best organised aviation shows available covering both airport as inflight. They create the perfect mix of content, social events and attendance, making our presence on the exhibition floor worthwhile every time we are there”
“The first thing I like is that it’s forward leaning. I’m a digital innovation manager so for me it’s not always about today; it’s also about tomorrow and what will happen next so this event has been impressive for me. FTE is the only one that does this in a good way.”
One of the areas that we are focusing on is the travel experience, so we are working with airports and airlines. One thing that is really good is that you have a lot of the aviation companies like airlines and airports. I also really like the 1-2-1 networking app.
“I was particularly interested in the Digital & Innovation conference and it was very interesting to see what other companies do in terms of innovation.”
“It is my first time at FTE and I have had a very good experience. It is definitely different than other conferences. The Co-creation session was a great way to bring together people that didn’t know each other and we saw that after an hour and a half of brainstorming we could come up with an idea of a product that people like.”
“What I really like about this event is that it is about reinventing the future together and you can really feel that everybody that has a role in creating this ecosystem is here, such as airlines, airports, and other companies. So, this really inspires me.”
“The conference sessions have contained a lot of good information. The topics covered have been very interesting. I particularly enjoyed the keynote presentation. We have used the One-to-One Meeting System, which has been very useful. The networking opportunities have been excellent.”
“It has been a very interesting event. The subjects discussed in the conference sessions have been very well targeted. From a networking perspective, we have met some good new contacts. The exhibition features some interesting companies.”
“The event has been very good in terms of meeting the right airline and airport executives. I am working on the PASSME project, and there have been lots of relevant people to meet here at FTE Europe. The networking opportunities have been excellent.”
“The conference sessions have been really interesting. It is a good size show for networking and exchanging ideas with people. We have certainly been meeting the right people here. We have been using the One-to-One Meeting System, which has been a very useful initiative. The party at the Guinness Storehouse was, of course, good for networking. The exhibition has also been very interesting.”
“For me, the event has been excellent. It is a very personal event and easy to connect with the right people. The conference topics have been very interesting, and there has been a very good level of interaction between the speakers and the audience.”
“I am very satisfied. I came last year as well, and this time it was even better. It has been interesting to have the innovation sessions. The networking has been excellent, and I have spoken with several vendors in the exhibition.”
So, for us the exhibition was really great. It has been basically a day and a half of non-stop client interaction with people at the right level about our solutions. We had a lot of good leads from it and it’s been a very positive experience for us.
“Epic. We’ve got 13 solid leads from big airlines. The networking tool is awesome. We do a lot of trade shows and I have to say the 1-2-1 networking tool has made a big difference.”
We’re very happy. It’s been one of the best shows for us so far as it’s been very focused. We had a lot of meetings set up before the show and I think we’ve had more than 20 airline meetings, and we’ve received very good feedback.
“It’s been a great show for us with lots of good meetings; the number of airlines here has been good for us. The app has been very efficient.”
“We have a booth here and it has been a very good event for us the past two days. We have met a lot of airlines which we are targeting because of our product. Through FTE shows, we managed to secure partnerships with Qatar Airways and Singapore Airlines and we really launched the business in that sense. The conferences here were really good.”
“It’s very good to have everybody together, to see the corporates and startups together. It's been valuable to attend.”
“The show has been very good for us. It is a very personal event – the networking is fantastic, and people are very open to talk. It has been very busy for us, and we have had good time during the breaks to speak to visitors.”
