Development & Management department, explains the concept behind the event: “Innovations are not brought into being by single individuals. Ideas have to be shared and discussed in open dialog so that newer and even better ideas can be developed together.

 

Increasing digitalization will change our sector over the coming years. This presents us with certain challenges but also offers countless opportunities. As an innovation leader in the airfreight sector, Fraport wants to be a forward thinker and pioneer in this process.”
