It might be November, but the industry again is preparing for the Passenger Experience week and Aircraft Interiors Expo 2020.
The Passenger Experience Week is made up of major events that focus on the on-board experience including:
- The Passenger Experience Conference (PEC – 30th March)
- Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX – 31st March – 2nd April)
- The Crystal Cabin Awards (CCA – 31st March)
- The World Travel and Catering Expo (WTCE – 31st March – 2nd April)
The show enters it’s 21st year at Hamburg Messe, with all 11 B Halls filled, as well as the A halls for The World Travel and Catering Expo.
The community will gather again between the 31 March – 2 April 2020 to show off the latest innovations to improve the passenger experience – where over 14,000 attendees are expected across the aviation spectrum – allowing buyers and sellers to meet on a face-to-face basis, and engage in networking both on the show floor, the conferences and then networking parties
For those who need to plan their show in detail, the AIX App will be out in November -as exhibitors start their long-range planning.
With over 250 airlines expected to attend (with their buyers), its a real chance to push forward the visions of passenger experience.
Among the vendors expected to attend will include major OEMs, Boeing and Airbus, as well as industry stalwarts such as Collins Aerospace, Safran, Recaro, Stelia and Adient.
The In-Flight Entertainment and connectivity (IFEC) will also return in this year’s IFEC Zone, enabling attendees to stay abreast of the most up-to-date technology solutions from OTT systems to 5G and VR. This will be the home of Astronics, Thales, Inmarsat, Panasonic Avionics Corporation and Global Eagle amongst others.
There is an education element too, with the free-to-attend CabinSpace LIVE Seminar Theatre, with experts shedding light on and debate key market trends and challenges, with a programme, will provide attendees with invaluable insights covering the entire cabin.
For those who want to dive deeper, the Passenger Experience Conference (PEC) will help visitors identify unique ways of improving the onboard experience. This is taking place on the 30th of March 2020.
Speaking about AIX, Polly Magraw, Event Director, said:
“Every year I’m astounded by the breadth of the product on show and the inspirational conversations that take place at AIX, from business meetings with key exhibitors through to the comprehensive CabinSpace Live seminar programme. The show is where the conversations start and the solutions are found. It has long been recognised for representing the entire aircraft interiors marketplace – growing from strength to strength. We can’t wait to share more about what we have in store for 2020.”
AIX Registration opens during November for those who are interested in attending – and all being well, Economy Class and Beyond will be on the show floor for most of the event too, bringing breaking news from the show as well as deep dives into products.
