ATI Conference 2024

Convening the UK aerospace sector

We are excited to announce the details of this year’s ATI Conference. Now in our fifth year, we are shaking things up with a new date and a new venue.

The ATI Conference 2024 will be held on 8th-9th October at the ICC Wales in Newport. Moving to one of the UK’s newest conference venues helps us to refresh our delegate offer, with room for additional sessions and an enhanced exhibition area.

The two-day event will focus on the ultra-efficient and zero-carbon technologies powering our journey to Destination Zero. Plus, we’ll consider the conditions required to accelerate technology adoption. 

With speakers and panels from the major players and innovators in global aerospace, our world-class plenary programme will reflect the urgent issues affecting the sector – from the global market outlook to how the sector can increase the pace of technology development to meet sustainability targets.

ATI Conference 2024 will again bring over 300 experts together from across aerospace and beyond to shape the future of flight on our journey to Destination Zero.

For 2024, following feedback, we are expanding the number of sessions outside of the plenary programme: breakout sessions, panels, workshops, clinics and a chance to hear from some of the ground-breaking projects funded through the ATI Programme.

More details on the plenary programme and other sessions will be announced later in the year.

Look back at ATI Conference 2023

95% of attendees said they were ‘likely’ or ‘very likely’ to recommend the ATI Conference to their networks. 

Innovation took centre stage at ATI Conference 2023 with organisations of all sizes sharing their progress on game-changing innovations that support the transition to the cleaner technologies required to deliver Net Zero 2050. Rolls-Royce’s UltraFan, Airbus’s Wing of Tomorrow, GKN Aerospace’s GTC, ZeroAvia’s hydrogen fuel-cell powered flight and many more were showcased at the two-day event.
