Cybersecurity, autonomous vehicles and emerging technologies will take the spotlight at the Singapore Airshow 2018.

Leck: key aviation trends will be looked at in depth

These pillars will also take centre stage at the Business Forums, to be addressed by prominent researchers and experts.

“These key trends are what’s happening in the industry, which is why we singled them out,” said Chet Lam Leck, managing director of Experia Events, organiser of Singapore Airshow.

He added that the exhibitions and discussion forums can expose visitors to product options and different viewpoints in the trade.

A new addition to the upcoming Airshow is What’s Next @ Singapore Airshow, a segment that brings in start-up companies to showcase and pitch their latest aviation innovations to interested investors and partners.

This new initiative will help introduce “new mindsets” in aviation, “expose exhibitors to what’s available out there for them to tap on” and educate entrepreneurs on the requirements of companies in the industry, explained Leck.

He told TTGmice: “The key evolution for the Airshow is in how we’re continuing to curate and create a platform that is meaningful and adds value. We’re trying to grow the show into a smart-thinking and immersive show.”
