GVF-EMP ‘AeroConnect’ Farnborough international speakers announced

AeroConnect: Inflight... Online: The Connected Revolution Continues... at 35,000 feet, a key event in the GVF-EMP conferences portfolio, takes place in the Navigate Room in the Farnborough Exhibition & Conference Centre on 19th July as an embedded feature of the Farnborough International Air Show 2018.

AeroConnect@Farnborough will comprise highly-focused industry dialogues with the satellite solution end-user aeronautical market, positioning discussion of key technological and service advances and user expectations in the inflight connectivity environment directly within the dynamics of one of the commercial aeronautical industry’s most important trade show gatherings.

The conference programme and the embedded format is designed to focus the attention of all Exhibition attendees on the key dialogues currently underway between the airline end-user community and solutions providers in the operator, service provider, system integrator and equipment vendor segments of the satellite industry.

Martin Jarrold, GVF’s Chief of International Programme Development, and one of the conference moderators commented, “Those wishing to attend should register with EMP via the GVF-EMP Aeroconnect website. In addition, it is mandatory for all delegates to register for a trade show pass, at a cost of £32, with the Farnborough Air Show. This pass will grant access to the exhibition, the air show and of course, the AeroConnect Conference, which is free of any further charge.”

Paul Stahl, Executive Director with EMP, added “The Farnborough Air Show is one of the world's busiest events and participants are advised to plan on an early arrival. There are multiple options for travel including coaches, trains and by car, although onsite parking is very expensive. To learn more visit the Farnborough Airshow Plan Your Visit webpage, which sets out all options.”

Speakers and panellists from such organisations as (in alphabetical order) Access Partnership, Cann Research Ltd, Cobham Aerospace Communications, Comtech EF Data, Effective Space, Hughes, iDirect, Inmarsat, Isotropic Systems, PatronNetworks, PHASOR Inc, QuadSAT, Razorsecure, SES Networks will offer brief introductory presentations and contribute to panel discussion across three session themes: In Orbit... Inflight... In the Cabin: The Technologies; Airlines & Customers: Aeronautical Applications, Technology Platforms & Passenger Services; and, User Expectations, Provider Capabilities: Business Models in the Cruise.

Additionally, to open the programme, Paris-based consultancy Euroconsult will provide details from its cutting-edge research and analysis of the aeronautical satcoms market.

AeroConnect@Farnborough panel sessions are scheduled to enable all participants to both experience Farnborough’s celebrated trade show afternoon air displays and leverage the opportunity to network with exhibitors. Additionally, having been scheduled for the penultimate trade show day, the conference programme will enable speakers and attendees to continue their networking on Friday 20th July.
