Reuniting African aviation ready for the challenge of the restart

GHI is convening a special Digital Reconnect Africa virtual event on as a conduit for stakeholder collaboration at this crucial time in the Covid-19 crisis.

An African aviation market already struggling with fragmentation has seen the pandemic threaten to exacerbate its divides. Now stakeholders stand at a critical junction: work together to ensure a safe, uniform and Covid-secure restart in 2021 or work alone and risk punitive border constraints, inefficiency and further job losses.

GHI Digital Reconnect Africa, which is built on the foundation of our African Stakeholders’ Conference, will provide a forum for best practice sharing and cooperation on the big topics facing African aviation in 2021.

The innovative virtual event will combine a keynote conference programme and a premium One-to-One Meetings platform.

The event is free-to-attend for content only access with premium passes including use of GHI’s One-to-One Meetings service available from just $200 per person early bird rate.

Conference keynote topics include: securing a safe and coordinated restart; delivering the Covid vaccines in Africa; coping with cashflow pressures; the African cargo market; GSE strategies and much more.

This virtual event will be held in a spirit of unity among leading airlines, GSPs, trade associations, regulators, suppliers and airport operators.

GHI's Digital Reconnect was a welcome event in what has been a difficult year. It provided a great opportunity to connect with customers both old and new as well as learning from industry peers on how they are overcoming new challenges faced in the pandemic.

I am new to aviation with just two years under my belt and this was the first event I have attended so I would be unable to compare to other events. However, I was extremely pleased and impressed with the One-to-One Meetings setup. We got meetings with some big players that we have had our eyes on for a while and due to our preparation and research, it seems they went really well. Highly recommended and I look forward to future in-person and virtual meetings.

Tony DeGraff, Business Development Officer, Consorcio Aviation

The meetings and sessions have gone off great. No complaints other than I think we would have all preferred to meet in person had the circumstanced allowed it! You and your team have done a great job!

Jason Pearson, Manager, Strategic Procurement, Air Canada

The 2020 GHI event allowed people to reconnect with people as well gaining insight into the latest thinking. The technology allowed the participants to attend the GHI from their home, or anywhere in the world – as long as there’s an internet connection. The GHI event gave you the opportunity to reach many more people than just those in your geographical location. Providing you with an opportunity to expand your brand awareness and engage an audience you may not otherwise have been able to connect with.

Colin King, SVP Global Sales, Menzies Aviation

This virtual event exceeded my expectations. The format worked perfectly, I renewed existing contacts and made good progress with new contacts in a business development context.
