On Thursday 24 September 2015, the Aviation Convention 2015 kicks off in Cologne. During this two-day event, aimed at strengthening links between academia and the aviation industry, participants will share and learn from each other’s developments, research and personal expertise.
In the constantly changing business environment, aviation managers are faced with unprecedented challenges when preparing for the future. To help them deal with issues such as digitisation trends, growing uncertainty regarding regulations, the development of emerging markets, and the need for more sustainable operations, the Aviation Convention has been launched in 2013.
Aviation Convention 2015
The main goal of the Aviation Convention is to strengthen the links between academia and the aviation industry by bringing together high-profile experts from both sides to share their latest developments and challenges from their work, research and personal expertise. The two-day event results in an overview of recent forecasting methods, best practices and insights on strategic trends and developments for the aviation industry. Participants go home with new ideas for research topics, strategic and operational options and solutions.
This year’s event, which is organised by Roland Berger Strategy Consultants, the Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) and the RWTH Aachen University, will be held on Thursday 24 and Friday 25 September at the Conference Centre of the DLR in Cologne. In addition to co-organising the event, consulting firm Roland Berger will also contribute in the form of two speakers:
Martin Streichfuss, Partner at Roland Berger, will provide the welcome speech on both days, the ‘Managing the Airlines in a VUCA World’ meeting on Thursday and the closing session on Friday.
