Make the most of your visit to Airspace World


It’s nearly time to open the doors of Airspace World, the largest and most influential airspace and near-space management event in the world. Thousands of leaders and influencers from ANSPs, ATM suppliers and professionals, crewed and uncrewed aviation, innovators and new technology owners will come together for a packed agenda of learning, connecting, collaborating, sharing, and business.

With just four weeks to go, here are some tips on how to make the most of your visit.

  • Register to attend. Registration for Airspace World is completely free, and gives you unlimited access to all three days of the exhibition and its five theatres. Once registered, all attendees will receive a Final Registration Confirmation email a few days before the event, which they will need to collect their badge.

Remember to pre-register as there is no onsite registration facility, only badge collection for fully pre-registered attendees.  Don’t miss your opportunity to join the conversation and shape our future skies.
