Exclusive unveiling of “Air Transport 2035” – a unique FTE/Fast Future Crowdsourced Think Tank

Rohit Talwar is a global futurist who has captivated past FTE audiences with his cutting edge insights on the future of the sector.

In partnership with Fast Future, we have launched “Air Transport 2035” – a new Think Tank exploring the different possible scenarios and strategies that could emerge for the sector. 

In this, our latest and most ambitious Think Tank project yet, we will invite our entire ecosystem to contribute their thoughts on the key drivers of change and potential scenarios for the industry, and help shape a portfolio of Industry Blueprints. These will outline scenarios of what the air transport industry around the globe could look like in 2035, the winning strategies required by players of different scale in major markets, and how all stakeholders should prepare themselves to thrive within it. Ahead of FTE EMEA & FTE Ancillary 2019, we will survey the industry and our Advisory Board members on these issues, and use this input as the foundation for the keynote presentation from renowned futurist Rohit Talwar.
