Review: PACEdays 2017 – Digital Transformers

A new generation of smart aerospace and aviation software solutions

Digital technology is rapidly transforming our workplace and with it customer expectations. Not only the much talked-of Millennials take having relevant information and digital assistance at their fingertips for granted, especially if it involves their work. PACEdays 2017 has explored what this cultural shift means for key areas of the aerospace and aviation industry and how you can employ emerging mobile, collaboration and simulation technologies to tackle these challenges in efficient new ways.

Tracks

We continuously evolve our conference programming to keep up with the trends that are shaping the future of aerospace and aviation professionals. Complementing the PACEdays's established key themes, in 2017 we have introduced a new segment to the program: Virtual Training & Operations Support focuses on how AR and VR technologies transform the way technical expertise is acquired and applied in the field.
