The Singapore Airshow, Asia’s largest and one of the most important aerospace and defence exhibitions in the world, will play host to the 6th Singapore Airshow Aviation Leadership Summit (SAALS), which takes place at the Pan Pacific Singapore from 4-5 February 2018.
Held in conjunction with the Airshow, the biennial Summit is jointly organised by the Singapore Ministry of Transport (MOT), the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), Experia Events, and the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
The Summit gathers key stakeholders in aviation, including top government representatives, civil aviation authorities and senior executives of airlines, airports, aircraft manufacturers and air navigation service providers to exchange valuable insights, network and strengthen the nexus between government and the aviation industry.
This year, these top-level government and industry decision-makers will gather at the Summit to focus on “Reimagining Aviation's Future”. SAALS 2018 will seek to address both the challenges and opportunities arising from the continued demand for air travel, and provide a platform for aviation stakeholders to chart a sustainable approach to supporting future growth in air travel demand. Please refer to Annex A (page 5) for the programme and speaker details.
Mr Kevin Shum, Director-General, CAAS, said, “The aviation industry is at a crossroad. While the industry is expanding exponentially, opening up opportunities for economic growth and businesses, these developments also bring about immense challenges and complexities. Aviation leaders must make the right choices today to create the right pathways for a sustainable and brighter future for aviation. The SAALS will provide a timely platform to catalyse critical conversations among the movers and shakers in global aviation, bringing them together to reimagine aviation’s future and unlock its full value.”
Shared Focus on Technology Innovation
Additionally, the two co-located events at the Airshow will feature a strong emphasis on technology innovation. The Singapore Aerospace Technology and Engineering Conference (SATEC) 2018 will focus on “Shaping Aerospace Through Innovation”; while the A*STAR Aerospace Technology and Leadership Forum (ATLF) will explore “The Impact of Technology and Innovation on the Aerospace Industry”.
Now in its eighth edition, the Singapore Aerospace Technology and Engineering Conference (SATEC) is the premier aviation conference that is held in conjunction with the Singapore Airshow, and is a platform for researchers, aviation operators and aviation engineers to present and discuss key developments and advancements in aerospace technology and engineering.
The A*STAR Aerospace Technology and Leadership Forum (ATLF) will see leaders from major aerospace companies convene for an inspiring technology convention in Singapore. Eminent speakers from leading original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) of commercial aircraft, engines and components, as well as aerospace maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) companies, will share their insights on the directions of research and development in the aerospace industry.
“The shared focus at this year’s Singapore Airshow Aviation Leadership Summit, Singapore Aerospace Technology and Engineering Conference and A*STAR Aerospace Technology and Leadership Forum highlight the critical importance of addressing the impact of technology innovation on the global aviation industry,” said Leck Chet Lam, Managing Director of Experia Events. “It also highlights the Singapore Airshow’s expanding role as a strategic platform to support regulators, airlines, manufacturers, entrepreneurs and other key stakeholders in charting our industry’s future growth.”
Singapore Airshow 2018 will be held from 6-11 February 2018 at the Changi Exhibition Centre in Singapore and is organised by Experia Events.
