Registration is now open for the inaugural DomusAir ON Conference “Airports Inspire Cities: From Technology Incubator to a Model for Urban Development “, taking place on 19 October 2023 at the prestigious Milan Bergamo Airport.
Urban development is a multifaceted challenge that requires effective models to address density, flows, sustainability, and infrastructure networks. Airports are emerging as dynamic hubs that seamlessly connect cities and territories, incorporating businesses, leisure destinations, multimodal mobility options, energy production centers, and more. With a strong emphasis on efficiency, sustainability, and comfort, airports serve as catalysts for innovation, effectively blending the physical and digital aspects of modern life.
Throughout this special conference, hosted in the new hangar space at Milano Bergamo Airport, we will explore the unique ecosystem that emerges within the airport’s context, acting as an incubator and laboratory where physical and digital network systems converge. This integration of data availability ensures smoother infrastructure functioning. By leveraging cutting-edge technologies like Building Information Modeling (BIM), airports optimize their operations, enhancing consumption and maintenance monitoring throughout planning, management, and future development phases.
Moreover, airports offer replicable and scalable models for design, governance, and development, presenting concrete sustainable solutions for various public spaces, from commercial malls to entire cities. These airports represent a beacon of sustainable urban development, showcasing innovative approaches that can be applied worldwide.
To reflect on this topic from a broad perspective, we will be joined by a diverse group of italian and international speakers from a wide range of professional fields, from design and management to technology and finance:
The afternoon conference will also be preceded by an exclusive tour of Bergamo Airport’s newly built high-performance facilities, accompanied by the designers. Tickets are limited, so please ensure you book early. A full programme of the day can be found below:
DomusAir ON is a must-attend event for anyone passionate about shaping the airport and cities of tomorrow.
