Why should you attend?

The Airbus Supply Chain is built on innovation in product development and manufacturing, and more recently also on digital transformation and artificial intelligence. With up to 80% of aircraft value coming from suppliers, the global Airbus Supply Chain represents a significant marketplace not only for traditional but also for new and non-aerospace suppliers.

Airbus procurement will be seeking Canadian innovation content under the ITB Multi Role Tanker Transport program starting in early 2022 across all divisions from commercial aircraft, helicopters, defence and space.

Airbus has identified hydrogen as the fuel of the future for their commercial aircraft fleet and is interested in innovations to address a wide range of challenges in applications and infrastructure related to hydrogen.

This event will outline:

  • Challenges and opportunities in the Airbus commercial aircraft supply chain
  • Opportunities under Canada’s ITB program
  • Digital Transformation within the Airbus Supply Chain
  • On the path to zero emissions: Airbus ZEROe hydrogen initiative
  • Finding your way into the Airbus Supply Chain: a robust value proposition
