AviaDev Africa 2023, the leading aviation route development conference for Africa, is just around the corner. The event brings together airports, airlines, tourism authorities, governments and industry suppliers. They focus on finding effective ways of unlocking African travel potential by increasing air connectivity. 

The 2023 edition takes place on June 14-16 in Kenya. Ink Innovation is one of the Silver Sponsors. And we’re setting the stage for gripping conversations on driving efficiency, building resilience, and improving profitability across the African aviation industry. 

Javed Malik, the Chairman of Ink's Advisory Board and one of the leading experts at Ink+, will be speaking in two thought-provoking sessions. The first one will focus on raising capital for airport projects in Africa. The second will delve into the use of technology to drive efficiency. Read on for all the juicy details.

Javed Malik on airport real estate investments

Ink Innovation will take the stage on the first day of the event at the AviaDev Real Estate forum. The Chairman of our Advisory Board, Javed Malik, will be bringing his wealth of experience to the table at the session ‘Raising Capital for Airport projects in Africa: Understanding the Financing Landscape and Investors' Priorities’. 

He’ll provide insights on securing investment for African airports looking to diversify their revenue and discuss what organisations are looking for when investing in airport real estate projects. He’ll also share anecdotes and lessons learnt from his days as the COO at Bangalore Airport. 

If you're looking to raise capital for your airport project, this session is a must-attend.

Flashback to AviaDev 2022

To understand better the value that AviaDev brings to the attendees, let's take a quick trip down memory lane and revisit the highlights from last year's edition. 

One of the event's highlights was the panel session on implementing practical technology to propel African aviation. The industry is ripe for modernisation, but the key obstacle is the high cost. Blaine Powell, CSO at Ink, emphasised the need for vendors to offer technology that is accessible and can save money in the long run.

'From our perspective, it is about bringing innovation into people’s hands, and to do that is to make it accessible. It is about democratising technology.'

While stressing the need for migrating away from obsolete and unreliable infrastructure, Blaine suggested that a cloud-based approach and embracing mobile technology are the answers to the heavy cost challenge.

So don’t be shy and reach out to Javed and Blaine now or meet them in person at Ink’s booth at AviaDev. You’ll have the opportunity to pick their brains about translating processes into digital product opportunities and improving customer experiences both on the ground and in the air.
