International Aerospace Week - Montréal 2019
Record attendance for biggest global aerospace gathering/event in Québec
First of all, I would like to thank all the participants and speakers who attended International Aerospace Week - Montreal 2019 from April 15 to 18. We had a large turnout, which testifies to Montréal’s strategic position on the global aerospace stage.
The numbers speak for themselves: Nearly 2,300 attendees - 80 speakers - More than 11,000 B2Bs organized
The week was held around three major events: the Seminar on Defence and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, the Global Supply Chain Summit, and Aéromart Montréal.
This week allowed us to highlight the many innovations and business opportunities created by the rise of artificial intelligence (AI) in the aerospace supply chain. AI was the focus of Tuesday’s Summit organized in strategic partnership with SCALE AI, Canada’s artificial intelligence supercluster dedicated to building the next generation of supply chains and driving company performance.
The week also gave Aéro Montréal the opportunity to sign a partnership agreement on artificial intelligence (AI) collaboration with the Institute for Data Valorisation (IVADO). This agreement aims to facilitate and promote the emergence of artificial intelligence projects in aerospace in order to support SMEs in transitioning to Industry 4.0.
The presence of the Honourable Navdeep Bains and Minister Pierre Fitzgibbon at many events underscored the importance that our two levels of government are giving to efforts by our aerospace companies to remain among the most successful in the world.
Finally, I would like to thank our two partners of the week, without whom this event would not have been possible: National Research Council Canada and Norton Rose Fulbright.
In closing, please mark down Friday, May 17th on your calendars: it’s the date of our ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING. All our members are invited to attend this event which will take place in the new premises of Mila (the Québec Artificial Intelligence Institute) at Complexe O Mile-Ex . Invitations will be sent out in the coming days.
