Innovative Aircraft Seating USA 2019
Research institutes estimate the global aircraft seating market to reach 1.19 billion USD by 2022 at a CAGR of 7.6%. Major drivers are air travel growth, increasing aircraft orders, and demand for lightweight seat design. According to APEX Global Passenger Insights Survey, 7 in 10 fliers cite comfort and ambiance as their #1 priority. Lowest satisfaction among air travelers are seat width, leg room, and distance to the neighbor.
Running this conference successfully since 9 years in Germany we were asked by the industry to set up this conference for the American market too - we are happy to announce that we are setting up our 4th edition of the conference in August 2019 in Seattle!
