Badr Al-Olama, Chairman of the Global Aerospace Summit Advisory Board, and Head of Aerospace, Mubadala commented: “This has been a challenging year for the aerospace industry. But while there have been significant headwinds, we have also seen the acceleration in the adoption of Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies to support the sector. The Global Aerospace Summit is a timely reminder that our sector – more than most – is part of a wider, interconnected global industry built on partnership and collaboration. By sharing ideas and experiences we can overcome the challenges to realize the tremendous opportunities ahead. Mubadala and our Aerospace companies like Strata, Sanad and Yahsat are honored to play our part in this conversation and share our vision for a dynamic sector built on continued investments in technology, disruptive business models and people.”
Khalid Al Breiki, President – Mission Support, EDGE, said: “EDGE is proud to host the fifth edition of the Global Aerospace Summit. The platform will enable us to leverage and strengthen our synergies and partnerships with some of the world’s leading aerospace and aviation players, as we seek to highlight the role that advanced technology plays, and will continue to play, in revolutionising the way the sector operates.”
Tony Douglas, Group Chief Executive Officer, Etihad Aviation Group, said: “This pandemic will come to an end – that’s a fact – and aviation will return to growth – that’s also a fact. The unknown variable is when. When markets reopen, adaptability will be key and Etihad will be ready. The Global Aerospace Summit is an excellent forum for industry leaders to connect and I am convinced that the benefits that will arise from working together will be crucial, as we collaborate to get the world back on its feet, and our industry flying again, safely into the future.”
The international thought leadership forum has been organised by Streamline Marketing Group and Tarsus F&E.

The Global Aerospace Summit 2020
The Global Aerospace Summit, hosted by Mubadala Investment Company and EDGE, will be an incubator for solutions for the critical issues facing aerospace – restoring confidence in air travel, the accelerated uptake of digitalisation, business preparedness and responses to disruption. Our virtual agenda focuses directly on the topics that will enable the aerospace sector to thrive in the new economic and social environment we are working in. It will look at how the aerospace and aviation sectors can bounce back quickest, where investments must be made now to support that renewal, and what opportunities will arise from a fundamentally reshaped business ecosystem.
