RedCabin has partnered with TXT company PACE, creators of commercial aircraft configuration software, to host a panel discussion at its annual user conference PACEdays.

    Titled The path to a joint marketplace: challenges and opportunities of sharing data for improved collaboration”, the focus for the virtual panel discussion will be on the potential for data-sharing to transform aircraft cabin configuration.

    RedCabin founder and CEO, Monica Wick, said: “We cannot bring about real change without collaboration within the sector. Being part of PACEdays 2020 means we can engage a large and diverse expert audience in an open, honest conversation; and use it to help develop new partnerships and ways of working which support the recovery of global aviation.”

    The live discussion is free to attend and takes place on 7 October (5 – 6.30pm CEST). RedCabin panel features leaders from across the aviation industry, including:

    • Roland Gerhards, CEO at ZAL Center for Applied Aeronautical Research
    • Jeremy Hunter, senior sales and marketing manager at JAMCO America
    • Volker Luderer, head of product policy & offer management A320 Family Programmes at Airbus
    • Carsten May, director products and solutions at PACE
    • Nicole Noack, managing director at independent Aircraft Modifier Alliance (IAMA)
    • Bernhard Randerath, vice-president, Design, Engineering, and Innovation at Etihad Aviation Group

    The keynote panel will cover a range of important topics, such as: the data needs and requirements of each part of the aviation sector; major technical and intellectual property (IP) challenges posed by cross-industry data sharing; and the benefits of a central marketplace for data on cabin configuration and the wider supply chain.

    PACE managing director, Frank Ehlermann, said: “Connecting all players in the aircraft definition process has always been the vision guiding our product development. We are very happy to partner with RedCabin to share and amplify the call for more collaboration and add such a great forum for peer exchange to our conference.”

    Started in 1999, PACE’s annual conference und user group meeting has become a regular fixture in the calendars of a growing number of international aerospace and aviation professionals. For the first time PACEdays 2020 will be hosted as a virtual event, offering delegates online access to the same industry insights, expert speakers, and networking opportunities.
