Revolution.Aero Dublin 2023

25th & 26th April 2023 | Dublin

“By far the most valuable event we’ve been to”
Bristow Group 

As soon as you walk into the Westin Hotel you will realise that you are at a very different aviation event. Revolution.Aero Dublin 2023 will be a unique gathering of the people who are leading – funding and supporting – the future of flight.

Rival companies come together to discuss and solve mutual problems. Investors looking for the new opportunities meet with technical experts.


“At the first Revolution.Aero, I met David Merrill, CEO of Elroy Air. We invested in his company shortly thereafter. We’ve now invested in at least three of the companies that presented this year and are close to investing in a fourth. I always learn something I didn’t know, meet the industry’s leaders, and identify companies in which we will invest.”

Revolution.Aero Dublin will look at opportunities and challenges for companies involved with:

  • Advanced Air Mobility

  • Hydrogen
  • Vertiports and infrastructure
