Revolution.Aero — described by its organizers as “a technology summit for aviation” — will convene for the second time in San Francisco, California, later this month.
Scheduled for Sept. 23 and 24 at the Grand Hyatt San Francisco, the summit will build on the success of the first San Francisco event in October 2018, and a European version of the conference held in London in March. Orchestrated by Corporate Jet Investor, the Revolution.Aero summits focus on companies “looking to revolutionize personal and business aviation through new aircraft, new technology and new business models” — including eVTOL aircraft and aerial ridesharing concepts.
Speakers at the upcoming San Francisco event include Mark Cousin, CEO of A3 by Airbus; Jon Damush, director of new business ventures for Boeing NeXt; Ryan Doss, head of product and business development at Karem Aircraft; Carl Dietrich, founder of Jump Aero; NASA’s Starr Ginn and Parimal Kopardekar; and many others. In addition to two days of content presented by industry leaders, the conference will also include Pitch, in which five or six pre-selected startups will pitch their concepts live from the stage to the audience, gaining exposure to potential investors, partners, and customers.
“The conference will be a global meeting place for the people who are reshaping, rethinking, and revolutionizing business and personal aviation,” organizers stated. “The event will bring together new startups disrupting the market with companies that have been leading the industry for decades. It will help investors, journalists and opinion formers understand this uniquely regulated industry and help regulators plot the future.”
