The Hamburg Aviation Conference is a great boutique event, striking the right balance between inspirational presentations and good networking opportunities. One of the best aviation events in Europe and one which I would like to attend as regularly as possible.

Michael Farrugia (2017)

It was refreshing to attend the Hamburg Aviation Conference where the focus was on discussing ideas, innovation and opportunities, rather than the benefits of sponsored software solutions. Presentations were thought provoking and seeded some interesting ideas.

I honestly think that the conference was a great success. Extremely well organised and full to the brim with information, speakers, panel discussions, innovators, etc. I also think that the mix and variety of speakers and presentations makes the HAC unique from other aviation conferences – where you usually meet representatives from airlines, airports and industry suppliers. At HAC thought leaders and innovators from other industries are also put into the mix enabling airline players to look at the business from new perspectives and perhaps resolve issues differently from competitors.

The Hamburg Aviation Conference has positively surprised me in all possible ways: quality of speakers and audience was out-standing, Hamburg and the venue itself was amazing and the whole organisation of the event was punctual and professional. I'll happily come back in 2018. I'd like to thank you for organising such a great conference as Hamburg Aviation Conference has become! I've attended MANY conferences and yours is definitely on top :).

It was a great event which was very useful from the practical point of view. We got an opportunity to see how the innovations can be implemented into the business of the airline and to discuss with our colleagues from the industry the new trends and solutions which could help to increase efficiency in the current dynamic environment and in the age of the hyper-connectivity.

Joergen Kearsley (2017)

Absolutely outstanding! I would like to congratulate to a fantastic event. The choice of subjects, the speakers and the type of moderation all in itself were already top quality, but the combination of all was simply an amazing experience.

It was my second time at Hamburg Aviation Conference, this is a fantastic forum to learn more about which directions is the industry taking in regards to innovation, customer experience, data management. Very interesting panels and "in pairs" presentations where supplier and business owner were presenting case studies, with realistic and tangible experiences. Great attendance and superb organization.

The revitalized brick buildings and free-trade heritage of the Speicherstadt is a fitting location for the Hamburg Aviation Conference. We were inspired to think anew about the existing structures of our industry and how to make connections, think, change and embrace the future. Personally, I came away from two days of discussion with more than a dozen new contacts and a notebook full of ideas to pursue.

What a great event in Hamburg last week! We were tremendously impressed with the insightful content and the overall atmosphere. Looking forward to next year’s conference!

I'm glad to have been part of this conference and especially of the Grand Opening Panel. The presentations from the interesting speakers were very fascinating and intriguing. All in all the Hamburg Aviation Conference was extremely well organised.

Thomas Jaeger (2017)

I typically get bored quite easily by content at conferences because it seems to be the same all over the place, but every year in Hamburg I end up sitting in more sessions than I do anywhere else because many of them give a really unique and inspirational perspective on new developments in the industry.

Joe Leader (2017)

The Hamburg Aviation Conference was amazing. It combines the best of all possible worlds: high-level speakers, an intimate environment, and a forward-looking agenda designed to drive aviation forward. For years, it has been an honor for APEX to support such an incredible annual event.

A great conference which brought together all the innovators in the airline, airport, technology and travel related sectors. A fantastic way of breaking down the conventional silos between sectors and a unique opportunity for networking with the leaders and innovators in the various sectors.

Bratati Ghosh (2017)

Since continental Europe is home to several of IBS Software’s largest customers, we found the conference to be a fabulous opportunity to connect with many of our friends and partners. The conference venue was a charming heritage property within a UNESCO World Heritage Site near the ancient port of Hamburg. We also appreciated the team’s knack for social media, which created a lot of buzz, and of course, their gracious hospitality too.

Stephan Uhrenbacher (2017)

The Hamburg Aviation conference combines a unique mix of different industries: Airports, Airlines, Technology providers - and therefore allows to test new ideas and concepts within a very broad audience

Lewis Holland (2017)

The Think Future conference was a great mixture of innovation related content. It was well balanced between practical innovation that's already available, with blue sky thinking.

Dawid Strzebkowski (2017)

I have to say that you led the event perfectly, and that your team was excellent and perfectly well selected. You brought in new thoughts and new people, and thus made these two days extremely exciting for us. Thank you. I will come back next year.

Julia Gebert (2017)

Thank you for the amazing and creative conference. It was really enjoyable and led to a lot of new contacts. The conference is a really good mix between content, depth and playful elements that make it worthwhile listening and attending. Your entire team seems super motivated and gives off inspiration during their work, that's really nice to see. Maybe this also impacts the entire atmosphere - it's rather friendly, people are approachable and eager to make contact.

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.

Andreas Spaeth (2016)

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.

Niclas Dzikus (2016)
DLR (national aeronautics and space research centre)

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.

Benny Mantin (2016)

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.

Stephan Jung (2016)

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!

Juha Järvinen (2016)

Andreas W. Schulz (2016)

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.
