UPDATE: Due to an unforeseen conflict the dates of the AEA/MARPA PMA Aircraft Parts Conference have CHANGED! The new dates are May 25-26, 2015 in Istanbul, Turkey. Please visit the conference website for latest hotel and registration information.
Over the past several months MARPA has been in discussions with the Association of European Airlines (AEA) to work together to put on a PMA conference specifically designed to further education about PMA in Europe and the Middle East, and open new export opportunities for our members. MARPA is pleased to officially announce its partnership with the Association of European Airlines and formally announce the dates and location of our first ever European MARPA conference.
The AEA/MARPA PMA Aircraft Parts Conference conference will be held May 18-19, 2015, in Istanbul, Turkey at the Hilton Istanbul Bosphorus.
AEA and its members have expressed considerable enthusiasm for this event. AEA has pledged to work with its members to ensure their attendance at the conference, and will be holding its own meeting the afternoon of May 18 to provide additional incentive for its members to attend. AEA and MARPA expect a significant number of the European air carriers to be in attendance at the conference. MARPA is also reaching out to contacts in the Middle East to encourage air carriers from that region to attend as well.
This will be an excellent opportunity for MARPA members to meet and network with European and Middle Eastern air carriers, or to continue to develop preexisting relationships. Of course, we will also present a slate of educational and informational speakers to give attendees the very latest information about PMA, export regulations, and developments in air carrier and leasing issues.
The AEA/MARPA PMA Aircraft Parts Conference is one element of MARPA’s partnership with the International Trade Administration under its Market Development Cooperator Program, intended to increase the export of U.S.-made PMA parts.
MARPA is very excited to work with AEA to present an excellent conference program and provide substantial opportunities for our members to meet and network with air carriers. Be sure to mark your calendar for May 18-19, 2015 in Istanbul! For more information, visit the conference website at http://www.pmaparts.org/EMEAconference/about.shtml.
MARPA looks forward to seeing you in Istanbul!
