Namibia to host AviaDev Africa next year

AviaDev Africa, a platform dedicated to enhancing connectivity to, from, and within the continent, this week announced that the 2024 forum will be held in Windhoek.

The event to be hosted by the Namibia Airports Company in June next year will bring together influential stakeholders, including airlines, airports, tourism boards, government officials, and industry experts to foster collaboration, forge strategic partnerships, and explore opportunities that will deliver new air routes across Africa.

AviaDev Africa is renowned for its unique ability to create a conducive environment for aviation professionals to network, exchange ideas, and collaborate on innovative strategies that drive sustainable air connectivity. By choosing Windhoek as the host city for the event in 2024, AviaDev aims to highlight Namibia’s growing significance as a destination for the aviation industry and its commitment to bolstering regional connectivity.

AviaDev Africa is a platform for aviation professionals, policymakers, and industry leaders to come together to discuss and develop solutions to the challenges facing the African aviation industry. The conference will feature a range of speakers, panel discussions, and workshops, as well as an exhibition of aviation products and services.

“We are thrilled to host AviaDev Africa in 2024 and welcome industry leaders to experience the wonders of our country for both business and tourism,” said Bisey /Uirab, CEO of the Namibia Airports Company.
