09:55Opening remarks by Chairperson
10:00 - 10:30Opening keynote panel: UAE’s commitment to sustainability: creating a more sustainable circular economy
Although important, aviation sustainability isn’t just about the lifecycle of an aircraft and emissions produced. The production, manufacturing, end-of-life and supporting ecosystem should be reconsidered to create a unified environmentally friendly industry, achieve an even greater impact and put economic growth on a sustainable pathway.
10:40 - 11:00Keynote presentation: Bringing carbon offsetting to the Middle East
Reshaping the sustainable future of aviation with carbon offsetting initiatives
11:00 - 11:20Interview: Kick-starting demand for hydrogen energy: exploring the hydrogen value chain
Hydrogen has become a buzz word in the energy world, but how close are we to flying on hydrogen fueled aircrafts? This session will explore the storage, cost, and infrastructure required to welcome hydrogen into the aviation supply chain and how we can fast-track development.
11:20 - 11:40Presentation: Improving aircraft design and technology to reduce emissions
Rethinking design to create a lighter and more fuel-efficient aircraft
11:40 - 12:20Panel: Establishing pathways for sustainable aviation fuel success
R&D into sustainable aviation fuels has risen dramatically over the last few years. Government and passenger pressure have accelerated demand, but further government incentives and investment is required to scale production and reduce costs. By identifying the tools required to integrate SAF into the aviation fuel supply chain, this session will explore how we can turn the possible into probable creating a true roadmap for success.
12:20 - 13:00Panel: Boosting company- wide sustainable commitment: streamlining operations between flight ops, dispatch, engineering, and maintenance
A credible sustainable strategy includes reducing emissions through new fleets, operational fuel efficiency, airport operations, optimal air traffic management, SAF and carbon offsetting. This panel discussion will recognise the strategies airlines need to adopt for more efficient flying.
13:00 - 13:20Presentation: Revolutionising the aviation industry with data driven green technology
The first step of reducing CO2 missions is understanding how efficient airline operations are, this presentation will drill down into data analytics to identify fuel saving opportunities, monitor progress and streamline decision making
13:20 - 13:55Panel: Tackling passenger pressure with government regulations
According to Reuters, U.S airlines and renewables companies are lobbying the Biden administration to back a big increase in grants for lower-carbon aviation fuel, arguing new incentives are needed to help fight climate change Reuters. This panel will identify the key government regulations and initiatives such as CORSIA pushing for a green recovery.

Advanced Aerial Mobility
Say goodbye to road traffic and hello to advanced aerial mobility!
This is your chance to dig deep into what new opportunities these disruptive technologies are bringing , from drone deliveries to air taxis, the way cargo and people will be transported is changing . Join world-leading UAV and eVTOL developers to discover the future of urban air mobility.
09:55 - 10:00Opening remarks by Chairperson
10:00 - 10:20Opening keynote presentation: The new age of drones
The disruption challenges faced during the pandemic has increased opportunities within the UAV sector. Worldwide lockdowns accelerated ecommerce activity, coupled with vaccine drives that are pushing capacity boundaries with traditional cargo and last mile delivery suppliers. This session will discuss how delivery drones can alleviate some of the ecommerce boom pressures and fast track vaccine distribution.
10:20 - 11:00Keynote panel: Maximizing regulatory readiness- fast tracking drone delivery
This panel will assess the true potential of drone technology and uncover how we can anticipate regulatory challenges to avoid implementation delays. With interest in drone technology accelerating, how can stakeholders increase pressure to quicken the pace of regulatory change to keep up with demand.
Developing the ideal conditions to promote innovation, facilitate efficient governance and ensure security and safety.
11:00 - 11:40Panel: Investing in the future of flight
Following the global trend, Dubai seeks to ensure a quarter of all journeys in the emirate are taken on autonomous transport by 2030. Drone systems represent one of the most promising emerging technologies in the civil aviation and transport sector, this panel discussion will identify how companies can capitalize on drone technology, calculate ROI and accelerate investment in air-mobility infrastructure to support drone development.
11:40 - 12:40Presentation: Exploring air corridors for autonomous aerial vehicles
The growth of air transportation innovations will lead to an increasingly diverse airspace. ANSPs and drone operators need to simplify the introduction of a unified approach to a safe integration of unmanned aircraft systems and ensure that all air traffic is moving safely and efficiently.
12:40 - 13:00Panel: Reshaping architecture and infrastructure for VTOL
Commercial and cargo drones cannot truly take off without the physical infrastructure to support operations such as landing pads, charging points, and drone ports. This panel discussion will uncover if cities are ready to support urban air transportation and if architects are willing to rethink the urban environment design.
13:00 - 13:20Panel: Adapting to key industry challenges to create a drone roadmap
An explorative session that will answer some of the most pressuring challenges facing the industry.
13:20 - 13:30Presentation: Exploring cloud connected drones
Data collection is no longer limited by physical capabilities. This presentation will explain how drones will become an essential part of digital transformation.
13:30 - 13:55Interview: Introducing the world's smallest airport
This case study will introduce the minds behind the world’s first drone airport.

10:00 - 10:05Opening remarks by Chairperson
10:05 - 10:30Keynote interview session: Reaching critical mass – the new space economy
What are the biggest opportunities in the new space ecosystem? Where is there immediate growth and what are the longer-term technology channels that will create new services and real revenue generating business? How does space fit into wider national development plans and the growth of a knowledge-based economy?
10:30 - 11:00Panel Discussion: The space access revolution – small sats and new launch
Space launch services are expected to record strong growth in 2021, with the market forecast to grow more than 15.7% year over year. As launch costs are driven down and the ability to rapidly produce small sats is ramped up how will the space sector become more responsive to customer needs? Which service base will provide the biggest opportunity?
11:00 - 11:30 Panel Discussion: Enabling mobility and high-capacity inflight data services
Demand for aero connectivity in broad terms is generated for entertainment purposes in flight. Inmarsat's 2018 survey suggests that about 67% of the passengers are likely to rebook with an airline if inflight Wi-Fi were available. How will space technology enable airline to meet growing demand for connectivity “anywhere and anytime”? How can airline focus on enabling In-Flight Connectivity (IFC) over In-Flight Entertainment (IFE)?
