Agenda

With a mixture of 15 minute (TED-style) presentations and in-depth panels, Revolution.Aero Europe will bring you new insights you can use. 

There will also be lots of opportunities for you to shape the debate with live and electronic Q&A at the end of each session - as well interactive polling and the opportunity to post anonymous comments. You do not just sit and listen, you lead the content.

All attendees will also vote for the winners during Pitch@Revolution.Aero
