Future Travel Experience (FTE) and the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) will jointly host a ground-breaking, interactive online air transport industry trade show, FTE APEX Virtual Expo, to replace the global in-person events that both organisations had planned to stage in the last quarter of 2020.
Following the success of the recent FTE APEX webinars, which attracted more than 4,000 registrations, including representatives from hundreds of airlines and airports around the world, this unique virtual trade show will include an exhibition of the industry’s most forward-thinking vendors, engaging conference sessions, creative networking opportunities, and an array of announcements and launches from the various industry stakeholders involved.
During two live show days (8-9 December) attendees will be able to attend live online product demos streamed directly from suppliers’ own offices and factory floors. Conference sessions will also be streamed live, and a networking lounge will enable Premium Pass holders to network via messaging and video calls. Then, for a period of 30 days, virtual attendees will be able to access the FTE APEX Virtual Expo portal at any hour of the day to watch conference presentations and supplier pitch sessions, and revisit the exhibition hall to learn all about the products and services that can help them overcome today’s challenges, reinvent their business, and thrive in the post-COVID-19 world.
The launch of FTE APEX Virtual Expo enables us to realise our vision of hosting the air transport industry’s first major virtual trade show focusing on reimagining end-to-end passenger experiences and business performance. It will create an unrivalled audience comprising thousands of the industry’s thought leaders and decision-makers.
