The European Civil Aeronautics Summit, co-organized by European Business Summits and the Aerospace, Security, and Defence Industries Association of Europe (ASD), will bring together industry leaders, policymakers, and experts to explore the crucial role of civil aeronautics in advancing Europe's twin transition towards green growth.

Scheduled for November 19, 2024, at the Egmont Palace in Brussels, the conference aims to showcase the progress made in the European aeronautics sector towards these objectives, while also addressing the significant challenges posed by a changing geopolitical landscape.

A particular focus will be to discuss what is needed to create a competitive business environment that fosters the competitiveness of European industry and leverages its full potential for the benefit of Europe - and beyond.

The program will feature keynote speeches from distinguished guests, engaging panel discussions, and insightful on-stage interviews. The event will conclude with networking opportunities, enabling participants to build connections and exchange ideas on the topics covered. Additional details will be provided as the event date approaches.

Our mission statement

Our mission is twofold: we aim to bring politics and business together in order to provide them with an opportunity to debate and pursue their common goals, giving a voice to all sides of the debate. The other priority of EBS is to provide European institutions with a platform where they can place their top priorities in the spotlight and advance the development of new pieces of legislation through discussion with a variety of actors and stakeholders.
