The conference and exhibition will take place from 18 to 20 November 2012 at the Sandton Convention Center in Johannesburg, South Africa's commercial hub. It will bring together a mixture of airline CEOs and other aviation executives and decision-makers from throughout Africa, Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East as well as many service providers to the industry, many of whom will be exhibiting.
This year’s conference theme is 'Business Together in the Era of Growing Opportunities' and will incorporate a Round Table of nine airline CEOs and a special presentation by Zemedeneh Negatu, Managing Partner of Ernst & Young East Africa, discussing how African Airlines can be positioned to compete globally.
Two discussion panels will also form an important part of the programme. The first will look at 'how to be and remain a successful airline through innovation, efficiency and cost management', while the second will look at 'the imminent challenges of change and African airlines' response'.
There will also be opportunity for airline representatives to network with peers and suppliers and IFE Services will be one of over 30 exhibiting companies.
A spokesperson for the in-flight entertainment provider said: "We’re delighted to be returning to exhibit at the 44th AFRAA AGA, after finding last year's event to be highly engaging, informative and a great opportunity to discuss the future experience for African airline passengers. We're looking forward to showcasing our range of great value, innovative in-flight entertainment services to the fast-growing African airline market."
Among the services offered by IFE Services are the provision of high quality onboard entertainment in the form of in-flight movies, TV shows and audio content; portable IFE solutions; original in-flight productions, including safety films and promotional videos; and IFE technical consultancy.
The opening ceremony of the event will commence with a welcome address from Siza Mzimela, President of AFRAA and Chief Executive of South African Airways. Opening remarks will then be provided by Dr Elijah Chingosho, Secretary General of AFRAA.
