A total of 16 guest speakers presented on their fields of expertise with keynote presentations by Dr. Askin T. Isikveren (Safran Tech), Marc Landgraf (Lufthansa Consulting) and Andreas Ritter (Lufthansa German Airlines).

In addition to plenary and breakout sessions, the first conference day featured a panel discussion on the "connected aircraft", hosted by recognized industry expert Sander de Moor with guests from Gogo, Airbus, Lufthansa, SITAONAIR and Teledyne Controls.
