Aerospace Big Data
6 - 7 Dec 2017
The Grand Connaught Rooms, London, UK

Aerospace manufacturers and MRO providers have seen the future and are investing heavily in digital transformation, while many airlines have yet to be convinced of the benefits of sharing and analysing the huge amounts of data being collected by their latest generation airliners and engines.

FlightGlobal is delighted to announce the first Aerospace Big Data conference, building on the success of our legacy MRO conference.
Across the one and a half day event find out why airlines should invest in Big Data analytics, whether OEMs can generate useful insights from the vast volumes of data available and how independent MROs can carve out a role in this new world. 
Join over 150 key stakeholders - including airline decision makers - at this inaugural event.
