Aviation Forum 2024 – Europe’s Key Event for the Global Aviation Industry

The Aviation Forum—a tailored conference program connecting aerospace suppliers with OEMs and systems integrators—takes place November 26-27 in Munich. The 14th edition of the event will be held in a hybrid format at Messe Munich. The first Aviation Forum was jointly initiated by Hannover-based IPM AG and Airbus Group. Airbus has renewed its endorsement in 2024, with CPO Dr. Jürgen Westermeier as the official event patron.

The Aviation Forum aims to provide a strategic outlook on topics that are relevant for the entire value chain of the aerospace manufacturing industry. Among the event partners and sponsors of the last Aviation Forum were Airbus, Boeing, and the German Aerospace Industries Association (Competence Partners); Collins Aerospace, Diehl Aviation, and Thales (Platinum); Blaser Swisslube, Capgemini, Dassault Systems, MRplangroup, P3, SupplyOn (Gold), adesso, Air Liquide, Liebherr Aerospace, MTU Aero Engines, and the Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance (Silver). At this year’s event, the organizers expect 130+ exhibitors and 900+ trade visitors ready to position their companies for 2025. AI-based matchmaking software will offer a best-in-class experience to the virtual participants.

The conference agenda of the Aviation Forum 2023 was based on three main topics under the motto of “Building the future of aerospace – pioneer, collaborate, and accelerate now!”. Over 70 speakers shared their thoughts on strong collaborations & digitalization, sustainable strategies & innovations as well as resilient operations & processes.
