The FINN Sessions

The ‘FINN Sessions’ (Farnborough International News Network) is a new feature to FIA which will provide a forum to share and discuss the major topics and trends affecting the aerospace industry today and in the future.

The aerospace industry is continually evolving as the sector responds to changing demands. From unmanned systems, additive manufacturing or clean technologies, the FINN Sessions will feature thought-provoking talks, panel discussions, seminars and key note speakers to educate, challenge current perceptions and provide ideas for the future.

The Innovation Theatre in Hall 3 will focus on new technologies and innovations in flight while the Insight Theatre in Hall 4 will look at major topics affecting the aerospace agenda today, such as the future of super-sonic travel and space tourism to new markets and growth strategies.
