Conferences

Airlines go premium for free

Benchmark your organisation’s innovation levels against the industry’s best.

FTE conferences deliver a memorable learning experience by providing progressive insights from industry leaders, technology giants, disruptors, parallel industries, academia and startups. We run plenary sessions to provide outside-the-box thinking and inspiration on the future, and also hone in on the most pertinent topics and areas of interest. Our sessions utilise diverse formats ranging from case studies and panel sessions to co-creation roundtables and elevator pitches.

You can expect the conferences to cover innovation efforts around digital transformation, customer experience, commercial revenues, inflight innovation, operational efficiency, future airports and sustainability.

Our FTE Innovate Awards pitch sessions will take place throughout the show, providing a wealth of inspiration as the competitors share details of their most innovative initiatives and what they have learned along the way.

Testimonials

Exhibitor & Delegate Testimonials

It’s always a great experience at the Future Travel Experience conferences. It is a very nice opportunity to meet my colleagues and continue the networking. There are always very impressive presentations from the speakers and always very well moderated. So, it’s been very helpful to better understand current issues.

Maria Cardenal, Product & Digital Services Director, Immfly"

“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.”

Mats Berglind, Digital Innovation Manager, Swedavia

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.

Mikko Sjoblom, Business Development Executive, Digitalist

“I was particularly interested in the Digital & Innovation conference and it was very interesting to see what other companies do in terms of innovation.”

David Kasipovic, Innovation Department, Lufthansa

“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.”

Gilles Brentini, IT – Airport Innovation Manager, Geneva Airport

“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.”

Maïte Oonk, Research Coordinator, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines

“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.”

William Racinne, Area Sales Manager, IER

“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.”

Marianne Thomson, Customer Experience Manager, easyJet

“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.”

Peter Biesslich, Air Transport Operations and Infrastructures, German Aerospace Center

“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.”

Lara Münch, Manager Traffic Development & Sales, Aviation Marketing, Hamburg Airport

“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.”

Ingvi Gudmundsson, Product Designer, Icelandair Digital Labs

“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.”

Naoya Shiratori, CS & Products Services, Products & Services Strategy, Assistant Manager, ANA All Nippon Airways

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.

Ilya Gutlin, Member of the Board, Elenium

“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.”

Al Tredinnick, Business Development Manager, 15Below

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.

Diego Cachero Rodriguez, CEO, 3D SeatMapVR

“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.”

Fitzhugh Patrick, Director, Business Development, Fusion & Mark Brown, VP Sales & Client Accounts, EMEA, Fusion

“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.”

Janne Kyllönen, Founder, QuietOn

“It’s very good to have everybody together, to see the corporates and startups together. It's been valuable to attend.”

Tarvo Topolev, CSO & Co-founder, RebelRoam

“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.”

Saba Rakhshandehroo, Design Research Lead, Samsonite
