CAPA – Centre for Aviation has turned its CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit into a hybrid event that will take place from August 5-6, 2020.

Held in Adelaide, this will be the region’s first aviation event since the onset of Covid-19.

The Adelaide Convention Centre will be the site for both the event, which will be streamed to delegates located elsewhere

The hybrid summit will encompass a main live component taking place at the Adelaide Convention Centre and a new virtual component beaming in local and high-level speakers from all corners of the globe, in addition to on-site speakers. Delegates can optionally participate in person in Adelaide, or virtually.

The speaker line-up includes Virgin Australia CEO and managing director Paul Scurrah; Tourism Australia’s managing director Phillipa Harrison; and Australian Chamber – Tourism’s executive chair John Hart, all of whom will present live in Adelaide.

Meanwhile, confirmed International speakers include Scoot CEO’s Campbell Wilson, and Japan Airlines’ vice chairman Tadashi Fujita, with more to be announced shortly.

The summit aims to provide a critical platform to share insights and perspectives on the industry’s road to recovery, not only for Australia and the Pacific region but also for global aviation. Delegates will be granted networking opportunities on-site in Adelaide, as well as virtual networking opportunities in the form of interactive one-on-ones, focus groups and hosted roundtables.

CAPA’s managing director, Derek Sadubin, commented about the importance of offering a hybrid event.

He stated: “Having welcomed over 17,000 attendees to CAPA’s digital Masterclass Series over recent weeks, it’s clear that the fundamental need for reconnection and access to accurate data and the latest insights and trends is stronger than ever. We’ve successfully demonstrated our agility and commitment to our industry and aim to continue this for our Australia Pacific Aviation Summit.”
