AirConnected DX event to discuss the future of the aviation industry in November

Paula Faria_CEO da Necta and creator of AirConnected DX.

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), aviation contributes to Latin America with a GDP of 153 billion US dollars (gross domestic product), which is fundamental to the development of Brazil. Information from the National Secretariat for Civil Aviation (SAC) of the Ministry of Infrastructure indicates that Brazil has the world’s largest portfolio of assets, with nearly 50 airports open to private investors over the next few semesters.

In this context, and to discuss the direction of this sector in the country, Necta and Fenleon Advogados will host the AirConnected DX on November 24-25, 2020, an initiative that is part of the continuity of work promoting sector-related issues in Air Transport.

The event will take place in a 100% digital format via an exclusive and dedicated platform that includes an exhibition, business meeting and forum, among other things. The action is strategically and institutionally supported by the National Civil Aviation Authority (ANAC), the Ministry of Infrastructure, the Department of Airspace Control (DECEA) and Infraero.

Paula Faria, CEO of Necta and Founder of AirConnected DX, mentions that Brazil is one of the largest economies in the world, with a vast area that requires connectivity and investment in this sector and is fundamental to economic development. “Brazil has 210 million potential consumers who expect even greater growth in aviation and tourism in the context of Latin America and the world. And during the two days of AirConnected, we will be promoting precisely these possibilities. The output counts with the participation of key players from the public and private sectors, ”he said.

Under the theme Post-Coronavirus Future: Connecting the Ecosystem to Keep the World Connected, AirConnected DX will cover the topics of commercial aviation, regional aviation, business aviation, cargo transportation, airports, infrastructure, regulation, technology, security and automation in a comprehensive manner in addition to air mobility and control tower trends.

Ricardo Fenelon, Co-Director of AirConnected and founding partner of Fenelon Advogados.

“Without a doubt, AirConnected DX is one of the key aviation initiatives worldwide where we have all the tools we need to deliver the in-person event experience in digital format. It is important to highlight that we have been taking action since April to bring together the key players in the sector and to monitor and contribute in real time to the debate on the safe resumption of flights. The aviation industry was one of the most severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and required a lot of resilience, management and adaptation to the new processes and protocols from the entire chain, ”emphasizes Ricardo Fenelon, Co-Director of AirConnected and founding partner of Fenelon Advogados .
