With the unforeseen impact of the global Coronavirus outbreak on the aviation industry, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the inaugural AXS by YVR Summit on April 16/17, 2020.

Coronavirus, combined with other aviation disruptions, has delivered significant financial constraints for airlines and airports worldwide including reductions in travel budget throughout the industry.

Together with our partners, we have worked hard to curate a one-of-a-kind event; while disappointing, we know that these are unanticipated circumstances for our industry and the global community.

The goal for AXS by YVR was to foster innovation by bringing industry leaders and outside influencers together to drive new ways of thinking. We saw an opportunity to create a new, unique experience that brought industry leaders together in a new way with AXS, and will endeavour to find new ways to challenge our thinking and foster change. Given the current situation, we don’t believe this is the right time to host AXS by YVR – we don’t want to dilute the event’s purpose if we couldn’t guarantee the right leadership and innovators would be in the room together.

The right decision isn’t always the easiest. From all of us on the AXS by YVR team, we want to thank you for your support and understanding.
