There’s just one week left until eVTOL Insights’ NY conference, which is shaping up to be another excellent day of keynote presentations, live Q&As, panel discussions and fireside chats.

More than 80 attendees are set to join some of the industry’s biggest thought leaders, influencers and innovators on October 11th at the Dream Downtown Hotel. Kindly sponsored by Jama Software, Gilmore Group and VPorts, the event agenda has been extended further and now features additional sponsors TruWeather Solutions and Coflow Jet.

Before the conference on the 11th, those who have bought a ticket are also invited to a pre-event networking drinks reception at the Dream Downtown on October 10th. This will take place between 6pm-8pm ET 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 in the hotel bar 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 8.30am ET on Tuesday, October 11th and can be bought via our Eventbrite page.
