Aviation Weekend


Aviation Summit

Extended Reality or XR is the umbrella term given to virtual, augmented and mixed reality. These are no longer just buzz words, they have become reality. Our event aims to explore XR (VR, AR, MR) applications that enable airlines and aviation partners to improve operational efficiency, enhance customer experience and generate new revenue opportunities for the industry.

Last year’s Aviation Virtual and Augmented Reality Summit (AVARS) brought together 140 delegates from airlines, aviation partners, academia, technology providers and hardware manufacturers to discuss the latest trends, debate use cases and address the challenges to adoption of this technology in aviation.

Our aim for 2019 is to bring together like-minded individuals who are changing the way air transport operates and scale up Proofs-of-Concept (PoC) to implementation.

Learn from XR experts and fellow aviation geeks to develop a robust XR strategy for your organization!

  • Airline technical operations, sales and marketing, training, logistics and supply chain
  • Air transport industry service providers
