CANSO Executive Summit 2024

As the world of Air Traffic Management gathers in Geneva for Airspace World 2024, CANSO will once again gather leaders of the ATM industry and beyond for its CANSO Executive Summit 2024.

The theme for the CANSO Executive Summit 2024 is ‘Transformation’ and it will feature a keynote speech titled ‘The Great Remobilisation’ from world-leading AI expert, Dr Mark Esposito. Dr. Esposito is a thought leader on the Fourth Industrial Revolution, a Harvard professor and advisor to national governments. This will be followed by some excellent panel sessions on Transforming Aviation through AI, Innovation for Efficient and Green Skies, and Transforming Future Skies.
