Berlin, March 2021

As early as 2016, the GATE Association, together with the ADV, brought the airport industry closer together for the first time.  The innovation forum, called GATE FUTURE, was so successful that a new edition was held in 2018 and representatives of German airports and their most important suppliers formulated joint visions on much-discussed industry topics. This year, which presented our industry with one of the greatest challenges in its history, we will once again invite you to share your insights of the past months with us and, in addition, to fill it with forward-looking ideas and exciting projects before 2020. We are pleased to invite you to the third GATE FUTURE on March 2021 in Berlin.


Several workshops will provide you with the appropriate forum to exchange ideas with executives on the topics of security, artificial intelligence, autonomous driving and baggage handling systems at eye level. Visionary approaches will also find a hearing with us. This year, we would also like to invite you to a free workshop, the topic of which will be determined with the participants on the day of the event. 


Be there and be part of a top-class group of participants who together will open up future-oriented perspectives for the airport industry.
