Passenger Experience Week supports Orbis for the second year running

March 2019

As Charity Partner for Passenger Experience Week 2019, Orbis will have an opportunity to reach new supporters and raise awareness.

From the 1- 4 April 2019, the Orbis UK team will be exhibiting at the Passenger Experience Week conference in Hamburg Messe, thanks to the generosity of organisers Reed Exhibitions and Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX).

With around 18,000 visitors attending Passenger Experience Week’s revered Passenger Experience Conference (PEC), Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX), World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo (WTCE) and Passenger Technology Solutions (PTS), the event presents a unique opportunity to raise awareness of the issue of avoidable blindness and our work across the world. Over the four days, Orbis will be promoting our unique Flying Eye Hospital, in addition to our award-winning online training and mentoring platform, Cybersight.

Additionally, the 550-plus exhibitors showcasing their services during AIX will be urged to consider ways in which they can get behind our vital sight saving work.

Nilly Sutton, Head of Corporate Partnerships for Orbis UK, said:

“Partnering with Passenger Experience Week is a fantastic platform for us to raise awareness of our services among the aviation, rail and cruise industries.

At Orbis, we believe that no-one should be blind due to lack of quality eye care. With the number of people affected by avoidable blindness due to triple by 2050, our work has never been more vital. We hope our partnership with Passenger Experience Week will encourage others to come and talk to us and find out how they can get involved in eliminating avoidable blindness together.
