Future of Aviation: Carbon Zero Planes. New fuels such as hydrogen, smaller short distance battery powered vertical take-off vehicles. Why Sustainable Aviation Fuel is not the answer to global warming. How hundreds of innovations will transform aviation

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future Travel Keynote Speaker:Auto, Rail, Aviation

The Future of Aviation - keynote at ZAL Innovation Forum Hamburg

The future of innovation in aviation will be dominated by three words: EMOTION, SPEED and SCALE. EMOTION: travel has always been driven by emotion, by the deeply rooted human desire to explore, experience, engage. 85% of humanity lives in emerging markets and most have yet to experience their first flight. SPEED: I am not referring here to supersonic air travel or space travel – both of which will continue to be exotic and unusual for the next 20-30 years. Just look instead at the speed of recovery of airline ticket sales the moment that COVID restrictions relaxed, as I predicted. And this speed is of course driven by emotion. We will also see massive acceleration in speed of innovation in the race towards carbon zero. SCALE: the investment required to deliver a new world-class passenger aircraft is so vast that only 2-3 companies have the ability to do so. The same applies to massive infrastructure that will soon be needed to carry the world’s aviation fleet towards alternative fuels. Most board debates about the future of aviation are not about what is going to happen but are about timing...

Future of the Travel Industry after COVID - THE PARTY HAS BEGUN, future of aviation beyond COVID, what next for tourism and business? Why the travel industry will be an engine of global economic growth. Travel industry keynote speaker at Seminarium event

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future Travel Keynote Speaker:Auto, Rail, Aviation

Futurist Keynote by Patrick Dixon at event for Seminarium in Chile

THE POST-COVID PARTY HAS BEGUN.  Update in July 2022 on this April 2021 travel industry forecast.  Paris is heaving with tourists, Barcelona the same, while many flights between Europe and the US are packed to bursting.

Along with manufacturing, retail and banking, the travel industry will be a fundamental engine of future globalisation, despite the huge impact of the COVID pandemic in 2020 and 2021 onwards. The reason is that human beings are genetically programmed to travel as hunter-gatherers, and have an irresistible urge to explore. (Written April 2021)

And as experience showed in 2020, whenever local, national or regional restrictions ease a little, huge numbers start booking trips almost immediately.  This will all be helped by global COVID passports - showing evidence of COVID infection in the past, or vaccination or very recent negative tests. Yes we can expect great debate about COVID passports: on the one hand COVID passports are a practical and common sense solution, allowing people who can prove they have immunity to travel or attend major events etc.  

Just as I predicted in April 2021, we are now seeing pent-up demand, as people look to spend more than usual on holidays using saved up budgets during lockdown.

Therefore, whatever happens in the current pandemic, to the global economy, or in other world events, in general terms over the next 30 years we can expect the number of people travelling each day to grow dramatically as wealth increases, and as real costs of transport continue to fall.

Consider this: 85% of humanity lives in emerging markets, and most people in the world are still dreaming of taking their first flight one day.The greatest growth in travel will be within Asia, and in people from Asia visiting outside their own region. We will see a rapid increase in the number and size of regional airports, high-speed rail networks, and new roads.

Future Flying Taxis? Future of Urban Air Mobility Revolution will be driven by over 250 new companies - electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) and related tech, Impact of eVTOL on the future of the aviation industry. Aviation trends Keynote Speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future Travel Keynote Speaker:Auto, Rail, Aviation

What is the future of flying taxis?  Many are asking questions relating to Urban Air Mobility, flying vehicles, electric vertical takeoff and landing aircraft and so on. Over more than two decades I have made many accurate predictions about the aviation industry - see elsewhere on this site.  And I have advised many global aviation companies including giants such as Airbus, Dassault Falcon and several airlines.  


More than 250 companies around the world are now investing in next-generation, low-cost, electric powered flying taxis. Most Urban Air Mobility companies are small startups that you have never heard of, while the largest aircraft manufacture are also innovating in this area. The top ten UAM startups have received over $6bn in funding over the last 5 years, with successful test flights over more than 150kms between charges.

3 billion more cars on roads. Future of the Auto Industry. Robot drivers, next-generation electric vehicles, hydrogen, shared ownership, eVTOL flying cars, traffic management, road infrastructure, smart cities - future of auto industry keynote speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future Travel Keynote Speaker:Auto, Rail, Aviation

More than 1 billion cars are on the roads today. But we would need to see that rise to 4 billion for the whole world to have the same level of car ownership as America.

By then, almost all of them will be electric powered, and the majority driven entirely or assisted by robots. Inevitably, roads will be very congested, especially in city centres, many of which will ban private vehicles most or all of the time by 2030. Most new car owners will be in emerging markets over the next 50 years. Chinese people are driving 230 million cars, most than any other nation, 8% owned by 40,000 car rental companies. Private car ownership in China jumped from 1% to 21% from 2002 to 2019, with more than 24 million new cars now sold a year....

Impact of COVID on strategies for Travel, aviation, transport, rail and auto industries - board strategy reviews, Futurist Keynote Speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future Travel Keynote Speaker:Auto, Rail, Aviation

Travel industry strategies for a post-coronavirus world. As a physician by first training and a Futurist advisor / keynote speaker on industry trends and strategy to over 400 of the world's largest 2000 companies, with a proven track record of longer term forecasting over the last 25+ years, here are some guiding principles for airlines, rail companies, auto companies, hotels, leisure and hospitality industries beyond COVID. The global crisis will accelerate many pre-existing travel industry trends, Most mega trends described in my books, including The Future of Almost Everything, will continue to shape the world as before, but the COVID pandemic will bring forward the timings of many key events. Examples:

Airlines will consolidate more rapidly in Europe because of COVID, following US picture over the last decade.  Larger airlines will be most likely to be rescued by government.  Borderline-non-viable airlines will be allowed to fold. Physical retail will lose out even more to online shoppers, with big jump in online sales which will only partially reverse after the pandemic has ended.  Many Shopping Malls will struggle to re-open in developed nations. Even faster growth of virtual working and virtual teams. Faster introduction of virtual learning into college education, MBAs, Business Schools and High Schools etc.

Here is more on Coronavirus / COVID impact on business strategies for travel, transport, retail, leisure spending, entertainment etc.

Why rail transport has such an important future - saving time, costs and energy. Future patterns of passenger rail traffic, freight traffic, intercontinental transport, trams, light rail, container freight, intermodal transport (switching from truck to rail to shipping and so on), and hyperloop travel.  Rail trends have to be seen in wider context of demographic shifts, emerging markets, digital revolution, e-commerce, changes in patterns of globalisation and global trade.  New patterns of migration, manufacturing, management.  Why more will be spent on road / rail infrastructure in the next 30 years than in all of human history.

Impact of rail innovation on logistics and supply chains - including next-generation tracking, signalling, systems and controls.

Travel Crazy: Future of Travel, Tourism, Corporate Travel, Aviation, Hospitality and Hotels. Why the Travel Industry will always be vulnerable to disruptive events. Keep focus on what matters - Futurist travel industry keynote speaker for American Express

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future Travel Keynote Speaker:Auto, Rail, Aviation

Here is a video of the keynote I gave on the future of travel for American Express in Moscow.  I gave a keynote on the same topic a couple of years earlier and the audience loved it so much that they asked me to return.

To make the point that video conferencing is a terrible experience compared to breathing the same air, being in the same room, they asked me to start my keynote by video link, from another room, and then walk right onto the platform, when talking about video calls and their impact on business travel.

So I recommend that you start the video around 2 minutes in - and enjoy your journey into the future....

How hotels and transport industry will be impacted by AirBnB - travel industry keynote speaker

Futurist Keynote Speaker: Posts, Slides, Videos - Future Travel Keynote Speaker:Auto, Rail, Aviation

Over 20 years ago I correctly predicted the gigantic impact of online marketing and sales on the travel industry - whether airlines, hotels, package holidays, business travel and so on.

And so it has turned out.  So how will the next stage in the online revolution impact hotels and the entire hospitality sector?

I recently gave a keynote on these issues to 800 CEOs of many of the world's largest and best known hotels, at a Starwoods hotel group global summit.

A key message was that small things will continue to create magic for customers, in the largest hotels, often at very low cost....
