08.08.2018News about Hamburg Aviation

Until 30 August, your vote can help bring our aviation cluster into the official program at SXSW 2019 in Austin, TX.

The South by Southwest Conference (SXSW) in Austin, TX, is known to be one of the world's leading platforms to discuss new trends in technology and society. For SXSW 2019, ZAL, Hamburg Aviation and Hamburg Marketing have entered a panel proposal on Urban Air Mobility, as part of the region's engagement in the European UAM Initiative:

Flying Taxis & Ambulance Drones: SciFi 2 Reality

It looks like the skies over metro areas will become a lot more exciting very soon: Whether it's urban air taxies shuttling you to work and back, or drones flying blood samples between labs and hospitals above struck road traffic. New services are due to revolutionize both our living standards and service sectors. Or will they really? After all, early 20th century drawings already showed urban skies in the 2000s filled with zeppelins, and neighborhoods seamlessly connected by stream train lines. What needs to be done to ensure the urban air mobility sector will really take off, and not remain a day dream? Which laws and regulations still need to be written? What are the pivotal challenges and milestones? And who will be the real game changer: technology or politics?

Until 30 August, your online vote helps us lift our proposal into the official program. Vote for the panel proposal here!
