The event put together by the Hamburg Aviation Conference exceeds the normal breadth, depth, and quality experienced in a focused gathering that size. I enjoyed every moment there and deeply appreciate the connections made.

This conference is boutique, with carefully selected speakers. I really enjoyed that.

The Hamburg Aviation Conference is unique in its interdisciplinary approach, I have never witnessed such a variety of insightful speakers of so different fields as here, it's very rewarding to look beyond your usual aviation horizon.

The mix of industry and science turns the Hamburg Aviation Conference into a truly interesting think tank. In particular for leading scientific institutions such as the national aeronautics and space research centre (DLR) the exchange with the industry is extremely important. This conference offers the unique opportunity to get in personal contact with the different stakeholders of the global aviation industry and to discuss creative solutions for aviation in the future.

I wanted to thank you for the HAC. It was a nice conference, very different from the (academic) conferences I usually attend. It is certainly unique and I can see how the focus on innovation can be very attractive among different players in this industry. I enjoyed attending and interacting with other people and recently I have met with people from DLR.

From the beginning I was impressed by the professional pre announcements of the event including the APP. The conference it self can only be rated with 5 stars when it comes to location, organization, speaker, delegates, networking. I do recommend this conference and the team with great pleasure, it is worth to go to Hamburg Aviation!

This new edition of the Hamburg Aviation Conference develops more and more into a “must go” event for the industry. I do not want to miss any more the discussion of hot topics and potential solutions of high relevance for particularly airports and airlines.

What I really liked about the Hamburg Aviation Conference was having the academic viewpoint.

The event was extremely well organised and made a big difference in terms of content from the typical conferences, where the same people tend to talk about the same things.

Thank you so very much for the privilege of presenting TPA’s story at your Hamburg Aviation Conference. Yours is one of the best run events that I’ve seen anywhere in the world.

In such fast paced industry, as an airliner, you have to keep up with the latest trends all around the globe, and Hamburg Aviation Conference is one of the best Conferences around the globe to get a true feeling about how the industry progressing for the future changes.

The Hamburg Aviation Conference is one of the best conferences I have attended so far in terms of networking opportunities and organisation (and level of digitalisation) in general. After this year's conference, my wife Olga also agrees, and she has already accompanied me to one of the world's best academic marketing conferences in Singapore :) Over the years, I have met a number of inspiring individuals that I would have never been in contact with without Hamburg Aviation Conference, including Jon Norris, Dennis Tierney and Enda Corneille, all of whom I have been in contact with after the conference. In this regard, I am very thankful to you for introducing me to and including me in this circle.

“We can all be followers but when a conference encourages you to look at your world differently, then you start changing for the good.

The Hamburg Avaition conference challenges current modes of thinking and encourages creativity and different ways of thinking. My sense of the conference was that each delegate walked away thinking I can and I will do something different and achieve change.”

"It's a good place to meet people and exchange ideas about aviation topics.

The conference was very well organized and the speakers were very interesting. During the conference and social events could make many new contacts."
