Airbus to host Aircraft Cabin Innovation Summit 2023


RedCabin has announced that the Aircraft Cabin Innovation Summit 2023 will take place from 21-23 March at the Airbus site in Hamburg. The three-day in-person summit will see leaders from across the industry develop and unveil collaborative partnerships and cabin interior innovations intended to enhance the inflight experience.

Ingo Wuggetzer, Vice President Cabin Marketing at Airbus, said of the event: “In the coming years there will be many opportunities to innovate and take the passenger experience to the next level, using digital enablers for more personalised services and ground-breaking technologies to develop sustainable cabin solutions – always driven by the needs of passengers and airlines. Hosting the RedCabin Aircraft Cabin Innovation Summit at our state-of-the-art facility in Hamburg is a significant opportunity to help facilitate the next generation of cabin experiences alongside fellow aerospace pioneers.”

The first two days of the summit will see delegates explore the challenges and trends in the aircraft interior industry, including cabin sustainability, accessibility, thermal comfort, air quality, hygiene, and flexible seating.

Sessions include:

• Explorations of new premium cabin interiors from American Airlines, Starlux Airlines, and Lufthansa

• A presentation on the latest cabin trends, conducted by Airbus

• Panel discussion on ways to enhance cabin accessibility, led by All Wheels Up, Boeing, Collins Aerospace, and the European Disability Forum (EDF)

• Research on thermal comfort in the cabin, led by Tapis

• Working groups on the future of cabin design and flexible seating layouts

On the final day of the summit delegates will be invited to an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the Airbus Airspace Customer Definition Centre and Final Assembly Line, alongside workshops focused on health innovations onboard as well as cabin trends.

RedCabin expects the event will be attended by more than 250 C-Suite leaders from across commercial and private aviation. Several interior innovations have been developed and unveiled at previous summits, including the Aurora Borealis (A/B) Economy seatback from Sekisui Kydex, Trendworks, and Rollon; the Butterfly 2.0 seat; and the Interspace seat from New Territory and Safran.

As the industry’s recovery hits full swing this year, now is the time for pioneers to come together and define the next generation of cabin interiors. By bringing together the industry’s finest minds we can share expertise, experiences and new ideas that help tackle the biggest challenges and deliver more sustainable, accessible, and comfortable onboard experiences for all passengers.”
