SGAC – Global Aerospace Summit Competition

Supported by the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC) and the Global Aerospace Summit 2022

What is the Global Aerospace Summit?

The Global Aerospace Summit, hosted by Mubadala, is an elite gathering of global leaders focusing on the strategic growth of the aerospace, defence, aviation and space industries. The Summit returns from 24 – 26 May 2022 at Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi.

1,000+ C-Level executives will gather to discuss future developments in the aerospace sector including manufacturing, technology, sustainability, capability development and international partnerships. The event will also provide insights on trade and investment opportunities for UAE priority markets including Israel, the USA, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, UK and France.

Focused on how digital technology is transforming the industry, the Global Aerospace Summit is the only event you need to attend this year to accelerate recovery and lead your business to growth.

As aerospace and defence companies embrace a range of digital technologies, from AI to robotics, analytics, and automation, the Summit will address the impact of digitalisation on efficiency and sustainability.

Covering the entire spectrum of topics within aerospace, the Summit will feature over 120+ industry experts and 30+ hours of invaluable insights and content across six content themes including defence, space, commercial aviation, sustainability, digital technology, and skills.
