Kindly hosted by the Zambia Airports Corporation Limited, the CANSO Africa Conference 2023 was held from Tuesday 5 to Friday 8 September under the theme: Responsive Service Provision, Delivering the ATM of the Future.

Our full programme included insightful debates, discussions and conversations you expect from a CANSO Africa Conference.

About our host

A brief introduction to our conference

Following the success of the CANSO Africa Conference 2022, we continued the conversations in Livingstone, Zambia.

Our discussions included the broader topics on SAATM and the role that the ANSP should play. Furthermore, we unpacked the CATS Global Vision 2045 through the eyes of an ANSP CEO and looked at how the Africa region should align to this futuristic process. We also covered topics like fostering culture of service through responsive service provision, a panel discussion on talent management and employee mobility, relaunching the Peer Review Mechanism and, finally, operational concepts on collaborative safety and decision making.

On Thursday afternoon and Friday morning we hosted two post-conference workshops on Cybersecurity and Safety Culture

And, of course, alongside all of that were numerous opportunities for networking at our opening Welcome Reception on 5 September, Conference Dinner on 6 September, at our exhibition which ran for the duration of the conference, and during the beautful Sunset Cruise on the Zambezi River on Friday afternoon.
