Aviation Security in the age of Global Mobility will respond to the need for a boutique aviation security event focused on areas of key importance to those with a vested interest in airline & aviation security.

This international conference will build upon the series of conferences staged by Quaynote in the U.S., U.K. and Europe over the last decade, including the Tackling Kidnapping conferences, run regularly in London, Houston, Miami and L.A., the Annual Aviation Health Conference run for 10 years in Geneva, London and Paris, and Opportunities in Business Jets, now in its 5th year in Malta.

Aviation Security in the age of Global Mobility  will take place at the in-house conference facilities of a leading international aviation law practice, Hill Dickinson, at their headquarters in central London.

With an emphasis on high-level presentations, networking and debate, this one-day event will put the following issues in the spotlight:

  • Cyber-security of aviation platforms including aircraft connectivity
  • Landside airport terminal security, particularly since the Istanbul/Brussels attacks
  • Security screening for airport workers
  • Cyber-security for airport computer systems, aircraft control systems, and air traffic control is also an issue that gets people’s attention Aviation Security in the age of Global Mobility  will target all Security Directors at airlines and airports, Corporate Security Directors, Risk Managers, Travel Planners, HR Directors as well as insurers, specialist lawyers, associations, regulators and policy-makersFor more information about speaking or sponsorship opportunities contact us now:
