Live Virtual Conference and Networking

 

FORMAT

 

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak Foresight Aerospace will now be delivered as a live virtual conference.

 

The virtual conference will include live video presentations and panel debates alongside chat rooms, polls and audience interaction. The conference agenda, timings, speakers and panelists will all remain the same.

 

A link will be sent to confirmed participants a few days before the event date. To access the virtual conference, you will just need an internet connection, computer or device and sound.

You will be able to log in and out of the virtual conference throughout the day and will have access to the recordings after the event. You can also purchase the recordings after the event.

 

We have also reduced our ticket prices to match the new offering. Speaking opportunities and sponsorship is still available for the virtual conference.

The physical version of Foresight Aerospace will now take place Q4 2020.
