The Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) is delighted to announce ticketing for its inaugural conference is now open.

The conference, due to be held on the 28th & 29th November at the NEC in Birmingham, is titled Realising Ambition, building on the Raising Ambition technology strategy we published last year. The conference is an opportunity for the Institute to showcase the impact of its investment, and challenge the ambition of the sector. We will also hear from senior industry leaders about some of their own ambitions, and offer a platform for the aerospace community to network, share ideas, and explore collaborations.

The ATI convenes the sector, facilitating connections between industry, government, academia, and the wider aerospace community. By bringing together a diverse set of organisations and individuals focused on the technology strategy, we want to make this event about the sector, for the sector.

The ATI conference is open to a diverse audience. You may already be part of the aerospace sector and want to learn more about the projects being delivered through the ATI programme, or you may have some great technology that could potentially be exploited into the sector and want to get a better understanding of aerospace. What’s really important is that this event is about technology and technology delivery, and if that’s something that you’re interested in then this conference is for you.

Attending the ATI conference will give delegates a chance to hear first-hand from the movers and shapers of the sector, realise commercial opportunities, and learn more about technology of the future and today. We have some very influential industrial keynote speakers for the two days (confirmed to date):

  • Paul Eremenko, Chief Technology Officer, Airbus
