Digital technologies have the power to completely reshape our lives and nowhere is this more evident than in the air transport industry. COVID-19 has necessitated for airports to now think of their digital transformation not in terms of decades but in years.

With a game-changing impact across the aviation ecosystem, airports that are the first to adopt digital transformation will lead in the future.

Hear global leaders and experts discuss the latest innovations in AI, IoT, blockchain, biometrics, 5G and more, as well as the best practice roadmap that will ensure success.
