Join Zafire at Booth 90 at #IataIGHC2023!

From 16 to 18 May 2023, we’ll be showcasing Zafire’s Global Aviation Software Solutions at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), the impressive venue for this year’s #IataIGHC2023, and we couldn’t agree more with this year’s equally impressive theme for the event: ‘Embracing technology. It’s overdue and the time is now’. 

We can’t think of a more befitting theme for an event at which Zafire is exhibiting our own advanced technologies and innovative solutions.  And we can’t wait to wend our way back to the UAE (coincidentally, the first country in the world to appoint a Minister of State for Artificial Intelligence in 2017, by the way) to exhibit there for the second time this year already to help friends old and new embrace technology the Zafire way.  If last year’s IGHC in Paris, France is anything to go by, we can expect over 800 delegates and Aviation industry leaders to assemble for this year’s event.  It’s just as well Abu Dhabi, a.k.a. the Manhattan of the East, is easily accessible thanks to its international airport, AUH, one of the fastest growing airport hubs in the world, currently serving over 96 destinations in 56 countries as well as over 10 million travellers per year, isn’t it?

Come and visit Zafire, Silver Sponsor of #IataIGHC2023, at Booth 90 at the ADNEC where you can expect a very warm welcome from our Commercial Director, Rachel Wesson; our Head of Commercial, Grant Winter; our Business Growth Manager, Chris Foster; and our Key Account Manager, Claire Roberts, as well as the opportunity to experience Zafire’s advanced technologies and innovative solutions.  But don’t wait until 16 to 18 May 2023 to make contact with them then!  The event app, Swapcard, is live right now and you can make a virtual date with the Zafire team before you’ve even touched down in the UAE, let alone sampled one of the 76,000 tonnes and 199 different kinds of edible dates produced there every year!

When you do eventually make it to #IataIGHC2023 and the ADNEC, here’s a brief summary of what we’ve got in store for you from Zafire at Booth 90:

  • Demos of the latest versions of our core suite of Aviation solutions:
    • FirstRamp (cloud-based app for management of high-volume and time-critical turnaround tasks).
    • FirstLoad (Automated Load Control for instant clearance and paperless ramp – safety is paramount).
    • FirstBag (‘Download & Go’ SaaS-based baggage reconciliation and ‘One-Touch Reflighting’).
  • Lunchtime workshop on Wednesday, 17 May 2023 in Hospitality Suite #3, hosted by Rachel Wesson, Commercial Director; Grant Winter, Head of Commercial; and Chris Foster, Business Growth Manager (details to be revealed in our next pre-show blog post!).
  • Giveaways galore in our Zafire goodie bags, including our ever-popular branded pens, notepads, keyring torches, portable power banks, and multi-USB octopus chargers.
  • The opportunity to WINSamsung Galaxy Tab A7 32gb Wi-Fi tablet or a FUJIFILM instax mini Link smartphone printer, courtesy of our very generous friends at Fujifilm (incidentally, did you know that our Intelligent Service Management Software, Smart, is the brains behind Fujifilm’s repair portal and service management system?) in our prize draw when you visit us at Booth 90 or attend our workshop in Hospitality Suite #3.
