The full agenda of Airspace World’s theatre content has now been made available to attendees. Following unprecedented demand for speaking slots at the world’s largest ATM event, Airspace World organisers have added a fifth theatre to this year’s event.

The five theatres are:

Agnes Krischik, Airspace World Show Director, said: “We were overwhelmed to receive so many applications to speak at this year’s Airspace World. It’s testament to how quickly the event has established itself as the biggest and most important air traffic management gathering in the world.

“We have some of the most important executives and leaders from the industry taking part in 20 high level panel discussions, as well as all the other exciting content that those wanting to plan their full Airspace World experience can look at now.

“And, on Thursday 21 March, as well as our regular theatre content, we’ll also have a focus on those coming into or establishing themselves in our industry, as part of our Tomorrow’s Voices: Future Skies initiative.”
