A significant milestone in the evolution of Airspace World was announced today. Starting from 2025, the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation’s (CANSO) premier global airspace event will have a new home at FIL – Lisbon Exhibition and Convention Centre in Lisbon, Portugal. This momentous decision means that the 2024 edition of Airspace World will be the last to be held n Geneva for the last time next year before the event moves to its new venue in Lisbon.
Simon Hocquard, Director General of CANSO, expressed his enthusiasm for the move, saying, "I am delighted to announce that from 2025 Airspace World will call Lisbon its home. This decision was made with careful consideration and aligns perfectly with our commitment to providing an exceptional experience for the global aviation community. Lisbon's excellent connectivity, cost-effectiveness, and vibrant culture make it an ideal choice. I am very much looking forward to welcoming attendees and exhibitors alike to Airspace World Geneva in 2024 and to Airspace World Lisbon in 2025."
The decision to move Airspace World to Lisbon in 2025 reflects the Airspace World team's commitment to adapt and evolve to meet the needs of the aviation community. The city's renowned hospitality, combined with FIL's exceptional facilities, will ensure a world-class experience for attendees.
FIL's General Manager, Maria João Rocha de Matos, said; "We are honoured to welcome Airspace World to Lisbon in 2025. FIL is fully equipped to accommodate this prestigious event, and we look forward to contributing to its success. The partnership between Airspace World and FIL represents a significant step towards the consolidation of Lisbon as an international hub for conferences, conventions, congresses and exhibitions".
The Mayor of Lisbon, Mr Carlos Moedas commented; “The City Council of Lisbon is strongly committed to hosting international events, ensuring the best conditions to organisations and attendees to strengthen networking and show case their work, as well experiencing this exciting city.
