An invitation only gathering, the Global Aerospace Summit is the most significant international forum for the true decision makers making up the executive level of the global aerospace, aviation, defence and space sectors. They are the drivers of corporate, government and military strategy, and the forward thinkers shaping the future of their industries. They come together to find, and to invest in, solutions for the critical challenges impacting their businesses today.

The Summit examines how new ways of building aircraft, launch systems and satellites will impact cost and capabilities. The cross sector makeup of decision makers present makes it a fertile ground for sharing innovations in business and financing strategies that will enable the capture of greater market share. In the leading edge technology discussions these leaders will formulate a response to the impact of disruptive technologies, and identify the truly transformative applications that will revolutionise aerospace.

The third edition was held on 07 - 08 March 2016 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) in Abu Dhabi, UAE under the overarching theme of innovation. The Summit was part of the Abu Dhabi Aviation and Aerospace Week held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.
