Icons of Aviation 2023

AsBAA is pleased to announce the return of its signature annual Icons of Aviation awards gala. This year's event will be held on Saturday, 11 November 2023 at the Island Shangri-La ballroom in Hong Kong.



The Icons of Aviation (IOA) is AsBAA’s flagship corporate social responsibility and awards event. Launched in 2015, IOA celebrates excellence in our industry while giving back to the communities in which we are privileged to operate. The IOA is an entertainment filled evening with 14 aviation awards across multiple categories. The event will feature a cocktail reception, dinner, and awards ceremony. The awards nomination and voting procedures will be announced shortly.

The dress code/theme for this year's gala is "Pioneers of Flight," and attendees are welcome to (optionally) dress accordingly OR stick with formal black-tie attire. To those looking for some inspiration on the optional dress code/theme, here are photos of two pioneer aviators - industrialist and aviator Howard Hughes and actress and aviator Ruth Elder:
