Due to popular demand, eVTOL Insights is excited to announce it has expanded the schedule of its upcoming New York conference, with Honeywell and Vertical Aerospace now confirmed as additional speakers.

Taking place at the Dream Downtown Hotel from October 10th to 11th, the agenda was already packed full of some of the industry’s biggest thought leaders, influencers and innovators. Stephane Fymat, Honeywell’s VP and General Manager will be delivering a presentation entitled ‘Autonomy – Esoteric Philosophy or Practical Requirements?‘, while Nate Ibsell, Head of Market Development – North America, will be joining from Vertical Aerospace.

The event – kindly sponsored by Jama Software and Gilmore Group – will start off with a pre-event drinks reception on the Monday evening, which will start at 7pm EDT at the hotel bar. A full day’s agenda on Tuesday will begin with an opening address from Starr Ginn, NASA’s Advanced Air Mobility Lead Strategist, and finish with a fireside chat featuring ex-Uber Elevate founders Mark Moore, Nikhil Goel and Ian Villa.

After the conference finishes, there will be another drinks reception for attendees to continue networking.

Tickets are selling fast and priced at $449 per person. Students interested in attending can purchase one at a reduced rate of $249, but will need to provide legitimate identification on arrival. They will be on sale until 5.30pm EDT on Sunday, October 9th and can be bought via our Eventbrite page.
