ADELAIDE – Australia’s first aviation event since the onset of COVID-19, CAPA Australia Pacific Aviation Summit, will take place from 5-6 August 2020.

The Centre for Aviation (CAPA), a leading market intelligence source for the aviation and travel industry, will host this as a hybrid event in Adelaide, Australia. It 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 have the option to participate in person in Adelaide, or virtually.

Thought leaders and decision makers include Virgin Australia CEO & managing director, Mr Paul Scurrah; Tourism Australia MD, Ms Phillipa Harrison; and Australian Chamber – Tourism Executive chair Mr John Hart, will present live in Adelaide. They will be accompanied by international guests, Scoot CEO, Mr Campbell Wilson; and Japan Airlines vice chairman Mr Tadashi Fujita; among others.

The Summit will provide a critical platform to share insights and perspectives on the industry’s road to recovery, not only for the Australia Pacific region but also for global aviation. It hopes to encourage reconnection and all delegates will be granted unique 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 managing director, Mr Derek Sadubin, said: “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.”

“With the support of our hosts, the Government of South Australia and Adelaide Airport, we are pleased to announce the return of the CAPA Summit and look forward to bringing the industry together at this critical time,” he added.

"The South Australian Tourism Commission is pleased that CAPA has reinvented this event to provide a forum for the aviation sector to look at the new and evolving aviation landscape.

Limited tickets for delegates to attend the Summit at the Adelaide Convention Centre, and virtual tickets are now available with early bird pricing ending 10 July 2020. For more information, visit apas20.capaevents.com
