As a prime region for the launch of eVTOL air taxis, Dubai will be playing host to many of the key stakeholders in the advanced air mobility (AAM) industry.

The much-anticipated AIRTAXI World Congress, the industry’s premiere AAM event, will take place from Oct. 7 to 10 at the Grand Hyatt Dubai. 

“The AIRTAXI World Congress attracts a diverse group of participants, including airlines, airports, regulators, investors, and manufacturers,” said Ceren Baktimur, Vice President of event at the AIRTAXI World Congress.

Nearly 1,000 attendees from around the world are expected at this year’s event. This includes notable participants from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Munich International Airport, JetSetGo, SKYTRAC, Aena, Flynas, Volocopter, Edmonton International Airport, Rolls-Royce, Air Chateau, Bristow Group, Aeroports de Catalunya, InterGlobe and Houston Airports.

AIRTAXI 2024 will offer a comprehensive program summit, one-on-one meetings, exhibitions, live flight demonstrations, roundtable discussions for regulators and handling agencies, workshops, and other extensive networking opportunities, all designed to facilitate lasting business relationships.

A particularly unique attribute of the event is the one-on-one, 20-minute prescheduled meetings that allow business leaders the opportunity to network and connect with other industry leaders.

“This format allows attendees to save time and reduce costs by consolidating a year’s worth of meetings into two days,” Baktimur said.

Comprehensive Summit Program and Expert Speakers

AIRTAXI 2024’s comprehensive summit program will feature carefully curated panels of industry expert speakers. The panels include:

  • Airports of tomorrow: Pioneering AAM integration for operational efficiency;
  • Airlines and operators: Integrating air taxis into existing operations;
  • Regional air mobility versus urban air mobility;
  • Exploring heavy cargo drones and delivery services as a market, and supporting current air and land operations;
  • U.K. and China markets: Pioneering AAM in vibrant urban and rural landscapes.

Strengthened by dynamic fireside chats and workshops, AIRTAXI 2024 promises to offer an educational summit program of the highest calibre. Click here for more details on the program.

AIRTAXI Market Showcase

The final day of AIRTAXI 2024 will feature an exciting new element, Baktimur said. The AIRTAXI Market Showcase (AMS) is an innovative event that will match air taxi manufacturers and operators with new and high-demand market destinations, such as Dubai AirVison Live.

“The AMS will provide unrivaled opportunities to discover the latest pioneering air taxi technology and foster strategic partnerships that drive significant growth in the emerging regional and urban air networks,” said Mike Howarth, President of AIRTAXI World Congress.  

“AIRTAXI 2024 aims to reshape the assumptions about air travel, route networks, and market potentials,” Howarth continued. “With sustainability at its core, the event seeks to redefine commercial air transport, emphasizing the creation of bespoke regional air networks, new smart feed options, and the viability of regional point-to-point travel.”

Promoting Dubai

In support of the host city, AIRTAXI 2024 will include a tour of Dubai, with limited space available, offering attendees an immersive experience of the local culture.

With its growth over the years, AIRTAXI 2024 is now welcoming daily business-to-business visitors from the industry who wish to familiarize themselves with AAM. Various packages are available to meet the needs of the industry. For registration and more information, visit the AIRTAX World Congress website.
