Flight Safety Symposium 2016
13th - 14th September 2016 // London Heathrow


After the success of the inaugural Flight Safety Symposium which brought together over 200 aviation safety experts for two days of interactive discussions and networking, Flightglobal are delighted to announce the return of the Symposium on the 13th and 14th September 2016.

What will the Symposium cover?

As the only event that brings together safety experts from Commercial Safety, Engineering and Maintenance and Air Traffic Control the event affords the opportunity to network and join discussions from across the aviation safety spectrum;

'A great opportunity to share knowledge and experience across the industry'

– Neil May, Head of Human Factors, NATS

‘A good event allowing learning and sharing across the whole industry’

– Lucius Fan, Chief, Air Traffic Management Standards

The Symposium showcases the importance of the continued improvement in global aviation safety through a three conference in one format showcasing only the hottest issues within the industry from SMS and ‘Just Cause’ to Safety II and the regulation issues. The Symposium covers commercial safety, maintenance safety and ATC safety challenges and key issues, running simultaneously but with the option to move between discussions should you want to, meaning you only join the discussions that are of interest to you! Of course everyone comes together for networking in the breaks and over lunch. 

Again we will be incorporating a mostly panel discussion format, doing away with endless power points in order to facilitate real discussions between panellists and delegates alike.

We look forward to welcoming you to London Heathrow in September 2016. 


We are in the process of acquiring speakers for the 2016 edition of the conference, so please check the agenda for updates as we finalise the speaker line-up

Sponsorship & Exhibition Packages


Being in front of the right customers is key. The power of the Flightglobal Fleets Analyzer makes this possible. Using this system, we will identify the aircraft owners who will enter a buying cycle in the next 2 to 5 years. We will then ensure that these buyers are present.

When you join us as a sponsor, the power of Fleets Analyzer comes into play. Initially, we will identify all of the sponsor’s current clients and extend a complimentary invitation to them. Secondly, using the power of Flightglobal Fleets Analyzer we will identify potential new customers for that sponsor. Sponsors will receive a full copy of this analysis (including a free trial of our Fleet Analyser product) and each of these prospective customers will be immediately invited through our powerful, multi-channel marketing campaign. No other conference can offer this bespoke sponsor service.

Sponsorship of this conference is the ideal method through which you can highlight the presence and expertise of your organisation in this market.

If you would like further information on how you can be involved through our sponsorship packages, please contact the sponsorship team to discuss your requirements.
