eVTOL Insights is excited to reveal the agenda for its upcoming New York conference, which takes place from October 10th to 11th at the Dream Downtown Hotel.

With eVTOL aircraft potentially launching passenger-carrying services from as early as 2024, our event – which is the first one we’ve held in the USA – will provide industry professionals with another excellent opportunity to hear from some of the biggest thought leaders, influencers and innovators in this space.

From eVTOL aircraft developers providing updates on their exciting projects ahead of commercialisation, to discussions about challenging themes such as public acceptance of eVTOL technology and the landing infrastructure needed on the ground, this event will not be one not to miss.

We’re still finalising the final few spaces in the agenda, but we hope the below schedule gives you an idea of what proceedings on the day will look like.

Tickets are priced at $449, which includes entry to a pre-event networking drinks reception on October 10th. This will allow attendees to network before the conference the following day. It will take place at the Dream Downtown Hotel at approximately 7pm EDT. Students can buy tickets at a reduced rate of $249.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available, so any company still interested in being involved contact eVTOL Insights’ Global Head of Partnerships, Doreen Pupillo, via email at doreen@evtolinsights.com.

Tickets will be on sale for New York until 5.30pm BST on October 9th and can be bought by visiting our Eventbrite page.

Dream Downtown Hotel, 355 W 16th St, New York, NY 10011
