PACEdays 2018: "On the digital transformation highway"

Fast tracking innovation in aerospace and aviation

Digital technology has drastically changed our workplaces and with it how customers work, how they communicate, how they interact with your organization. And critically, how they make purchasing decisions. Expectations are on the rise and the digital imperative puts unprecedented demands on your IT and business systems to reshape key aspects of your organization, from customer engagement, working practices to employee productivity.

At last year's PACEdays we introduced our vision of supporting your journey on the digital transformation path. Now we are eager to present our latest results and developments and to continue our dialog on technology challenges and emerging trends.

Our two-day conference starts with plenary sessions addressing industry topics of wider interest followed by breakout tracks focusing on our different lines of business. The sessions will feature a mix of customer reports, industry insights and live software demonstration giving you plenty of opportunity to discuss with fellow professionals and senior staff, both during the Q&As or between sessions.

Networking event

On Tuesday night we invite you to join us at Nola’s am Weinberg for an informal evening of Swiss-inspired delights. A short-ish walk away from the conference hotel, this stylish restaurant is housed in a listed 1950s pavilion perched on top of a gentle slope in Mitte’s popular Weinberg park. What better way to unwind after a busy conference day than by taking in some greenery and watching the sunset from Nola’s floor-to-ceiling windows or from its large outdoor terrace? 

Nola's am Weinberg
Veteranenstr. 9 | 10119 Berlin

The networking dinner is free for registered PACEdays delegates, but if you want to bring someone along, you can obtain additional visitor tickets for EUR 75.
