Gareth Rogers, CEO of Farnborough International, said: “AGF has been developed and curated to drive positive actionable change across our industry and wider ecosystem through collaboration. To achieve this, we knew we needed to speak to the pioneers, strategists and innovators within not only the aerospace industry, but all of the supporting sectors, such as technology, energy and government. Our programme incorporates leaders of the change-making organisations across the industry and beyond and I look forward to welcoming this world-class programme of speakers to the AGF stage in July.”
