AFRICAN AIR SHOW : AVIATION EXHIBITION AND CONFERENCE
The 1st Global Aviation Exhibition for Africa will be held at Kotoka International Airport Accra, Ghana.
This pioneering African Event focuses on and integrates three critical areas in the world of Aviation:
- Airport Infrastructures and Suppliers
One of the aims of the African Air Show is to highlight the importance of infrastructure within aviation, including airport procurement, supplies, solutions and technology. The African Air Show will attract key aviation industry players to discover first-hand the range of new technologies and solutions that the industry has to offer. The African Air Show is an ideal platform to discover the latest technologies and learn about emerging trends and networking with key decision- makers and get first-hand knowledge about the industry’s present and future growth.
By 2040, all airports on the African Continent will need to be expanded or supplemented by additional airports so as to handle the anticipated growth of 350% to 600% over current air passenger levels in Air Traffic.
- Human Capital Development
With the growth rate in African Aviation (around 6.3%) surpassing the global growth rate (hovering around 4.5%), the urgency to address human capital needs for the next 25 years has become a critical imperative. Ghana, alone, is experiencing a growth rate of over 9.2%. The African Air Show will focus on the latest trends, training and recruitment within the aviation industry so as to prepare Africa to meet the challenges of the next 25 years.
The Conference aims to provide an opportunity to chart out career opportunities in African Aviation, ask questions of industry experts and enjoy a hands-on experience within the aviation and aerospace industry – Empowering Africa through training and human capital development!
The African Air Show promotes the belief that human capital development will continue to be rooted in a strong training culture which integrates experiences of the past with the massive requirements of the future.
The Conference will address the issue that training not only delivers operational effectiveness but also caters to the dreams, aspirations and ambitions of individuals looking for a long term career in the aviation industry.
With Africa at the forefront of global aviation growth, the Conference will offer participants an ideal platform to be at the forefront of the fastest growth rates in aviation and airport-related human capital opportunities.
Learn. Interact. Exchange. Succeed.
