Limosa, Lilium and BAC Aerospace confirmed to participate at eVTOL Insights’ Montreal Conference — get your tickets now!

There’s now four weeks until eVTOL Insights’ Mon­tre­al Con­fer­ence and com­pa­nies are urged to buy their tick­ets for the event, with the pre­lim­i­nary agen­da now start­ing to shape up with indus­try thought lead­ers and influ­encers.

More addi­tions to the sched­ule will be includ­ed in the com­ing weeks, so please keep an eye on our web­site for more details!

Tak­ing place at the Le Mount Stephen Hotel, the event will once again bring togeth­er senior indus­try lead­ers for con­ver­sa­tions about a whole host of indus­try top­ics. It fol­lows on from events held in Lon­don, New York and Sin­ga­pore.

Our event sched­ule takes off with an indus­try tour on Wednes­day, May 1st in the after­noon. We will then host a pre-event net­work­ing drinks in the evening.

On Thurs­day, May 2nd, we will kick off pro­ceed­ings with an open­ing address by Stéphane Paquet, CEO and Pres­i­dent at Mon­tre­al Inter­na­tion­al. He will pro­vide a com­pelling overview about the won­der­ful city and third biggest aero­space hub in the world.

Our first pan­el dis­cus­sion of the day fea­tures Jaunt Air Mobil­i­ty, Ver­tiko Mobil­i­ty and SGI Cana­da as they talk about the work they are doing in the Mon­tre­al region to bring eVTOL air­craft togeth­er with oth­er forms of mobil­i­ty.

Gwen Lighter of GoAERO and Bran­don Robin­son of Hori­zon Air­craft will pro­vide keynotes on the role their com­pa­nies are play­ing in the mar­ket, before Phil Cole of Cert Cen­ter Cana­da takes over mod­er­a­tion duties to host a fas­ci­nat­ing pan­el on cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and reg­u­la­tion in Cana­da.

This will also include Trans­port Cana­da, BAC Aero­space and CAYRES and will be a great oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn more about what the coun­try is doing to cre­ate a vis­i­ble and trans­par­ent path­way for com­pa­nies to cer­ti­fy their air­craft.

After a keynote from ther­mal mate­r­i­al experts Blueshift, we talk about nav­i­gat­ing the AAM air­space with VPorts and CAE and then fin­ish our pre-lunch ses­sions with a excit­ing fire­side chat between Boe­ing and Wisk.

We will deep dive into why Boe­ing placed its bet on Advanced Air Mobil­i­ty, hear from both com­pa­nies about the work they are doing togeth­er, plus get an insight into what the future holds in regards to Wisk’s roadmap with its autonomous eVTOL air­craft.

After lunch, we’re delight­ed to be joined by ICAO, who will fea­ture in a dis­cus­sion with Cana­di­an Advanced Air Mobil­i­ty Con­sor­tium (CAAM) and Limosa about recog­nis­ing Canada’s poten­tial in the glob­al mar­ket­place, espe­cial­ly with so much hap­pen­ing in the coun­try.

As we edge clos­er to com­mer­cial­i­sa­tion, our final ses­sions include a fas­ci­nat­ing pan­el on man­u­fac­tur­ing and sup­ply chain. This includes Joby Avi­a­tion, with the com­pa­ny expand­ing more on its work in Day­ton, Ohio and Dana Jensen from the US Air Force, offer­ing more expert thoughts on this vital area of the ecosys­tem.

We fin­ish our con­fer­ence with Ser­gio Cecut­ta of SMG Con­sult­ing, who will be mod­er­at­ing a dis­cus­sion with some of the big eVTOL OEMs and talk­ing to them about entry into ser­vice. Already con­firmed to fea­ture is Adam War­mouth, Head of Prod­uct at Archer, and Matt Broff­man, Head of Part­ner­ships and Net­works at Lil­i­um.

Once the con­fer­ence fin­ish­es, we will be host­ing our very first Advanced Air Mobil­i­ty Awards. This will be a drinks and canapés evening from 6pm to 7.30pm in the same venue and entries are now open. The dead­line to sub­mit for these awards is Fri­day, April 19th.

We will then be organ­is­ing anoth­er indus­try tour in the morn­ing of Fri­day, May 3rd, which will sig­nal the end of our Mon­tre­al event once it fin­ish­es.

Tick­ets to attend the con­fer­ence are now on sale via Eventbrite. They include entry to the con­fer­ence, indus­try tours on the May 1st and 3rd and our very first Advanced Air Mobil­i­ty Awards. This cer­e­mo­ny will be held in the evening and after the con­fer­ence fin­ish­es.

You can pur­chase tick­ets to the awards only, which cost $200. These do not grant entry into the day con­fer­ence and the indus­try tours.

There are still some speak­er slots left. Please email Jason Pritchard, eVTOL Insights’ Exec­u­tive Edi­tor, at jason@evtolinsights.com, if you’d like to be con­sid­ered.

As this is our first event in Cana­da, there are still spon­sor­ship oppor­tu­ni­ties avail­able. We cur­rent­ly have pack­ages as a speak­er, event spon­sor or exhibitor.

If you’d like to find out more infor­ma­tion, please email either Doreen Pupil­lo, Head of Part­ner­ships, or James Craven, Head of Busi­ness Devel­op­ment (Amer­i­c­as).

They can be reached via email at doreen@evtolinsights.com or james@evtolinsights.com
