The Africa Aviation ICT Forum Kicks Off in Johannesburg

A notable event will kick off in Johannesburg South Africa in a few hours’ time at the Protea Hotel Balalaika Sandton: The Africa Aviation ICT Forum that will bring together aviation ICT professionals from across the continent to discuss very interesting issues on aviation and information technology in Africa. If you work in an airline Information Services Department, this is definitely a conference for you! The conference is intended for CIOs and IT managers in the aviation industry.

The event will be hosted by the African Airlines Association, SITA and the Airports Council International (ACI) so expect the who’s who’s of African aviation at this meeting. This leading pan-industry event provides a unique opportunity to identify and understand the trends that will shape the airline business, focusing on the transformational role that technology can play.

Top level industry speakers will discuss such key issues as: Passenger management, Airline business transformation, Airport management and infrastructure Air traffic management and transportation security
IT managers will learn how new technologies and lifestyle changes make customer service requirements increasingly sophisticated, demanding the industry to constantly re-evaluate strategies and be prepared to evolve. Delegates will brainstorm:

·    Why airlines need to maximize revenue in a fast-changing and increasingly commoditized environment?
·    Is the Airport a real Hub of the Aviation?
·    Why industry and governments want to see greater systems efficiencies while maintaining the same high levels of passenger security or better?
·    How can intense market pressures characterised by increasing flights, passengers and baggage demand services be delivered quicker, more efficiently and at a lower cost?

Delegates and my blog readers will benefit from:
·    Being updated on the latest trends and expert analysis of the Aviation industry
·    Hearing from recognised and respected industry speakers
·    Networking opportunities with peers
·    Having 1 to 1 sessions with industry experts

While I will be far away from Sandton, I will be sipping coffee from my favorite Nairobi CafĂ©, I intend to aggregrate all the conversation from the speakers and regularly update our readers on the going ons down South. That’s the power of social media folks, you can attend meetings without attending. Follow our Tweets @FlyEU for regular updates. You can use the hashtag #AAvICTF on Twitter since the organizers did not mind to create a neither Twitter profile for the event nor a Twitter hashtag to track the conversation.

See you later!
