CANSO announces stellar line up of speakers for Executive Summit 2023


CANSO has announced a line-up of top industry leaders to speak at its Executive Summit 2023, taking place at Airspace World at the Palexpo Centre, Geneva, Switzerland, on 7 March.

The Summit will open with a keynote address from ICAO President, Salvatore Sciacchitano.

A panel of top aviation leaders will then discuss what airspace users of the future need, and the technology, innovation and workforce required by our future skies. IATA Director General Willie Walsh, and Director of NATO HQ Armaments and Aerospace Capabilities Directorate, Dr Giorgio Cioni will share their views on what the future holds and sharing their views on the challenges facing the aviation industry and the ways in which the ATM industry can help meet them.

The Summit’s final keynote speech will then come from Shaesta Waiz – founder of Dreams Soar who, in 2017, became the youngest woman to fly solo around the world in a single-engine aircraft. She will talk about what motivated her to become an aviator, and tell the story of her inspirational journey around the world. She will also set out what skills might be needed from our future workforce, and how we can work together to encourage the next generation of talent to join our industry.

Simon Hocquard, CANSO Director General, said: “It’s a real honour that these industry experts have agreed to share their knowledge, experience and expertise with us, and is a testament to the ways in which CANSO is able to bring the entire aviation industry together as we shape our future skies.

“We talk a lot about the importance of collaboration in our industry, and I think the presence of these eminent leaders will help us further the ways ATM plays a crucial part in creating an aviation industry for the future.”

Attendance at the Summit is free for up to 10 senior leaders from CANSO’s Members.
