Latest MRO Americas Update

July 13. 2020

 

Dear MRO Community Colleagues, 

I thought I was done with these letters.  Just one month ago we were confident that we would be able to hold an in-person event in Dallas this September.  But as we all know, life, and the summer of 2020, is full of surprises.  Some better than others.

It is with a heavy heart that Aviation Week Network, producer of the MRO Americas and MRO Europe Conferences & Exhibitions, announces the difficult decision to not hold these as in-person events in 2020.  Originally scheduled to take place in Dallas, Texas, September 1-3 and Barcelona, Spain, October 27-29, respectively, these events will be moving to a virtual platform.

This conclusion was not reached easily, however, with the health and safety of our community in mind, as well as government and businesses restrictions on travel and gatherings, we made the proactive decision to act now, allowing our industry partners enough time to adjust their plans.

While in person events are paused, connecting in a live, engaging, immersive environment is not. 

With this in mind we are excited to announce MRO TransAtlantic, taking place October 27-29, 2020. This event will bring the traditional MRO Americas and MRO Europe communities into one global forum.  The Virtual event will provide a digital marketplace where airlines, OEMs and MRO suppliers can discover and showcase new products and innovations, connect with new and existing business partners, and share knowledge and best practices all while experiencing and having access to the high-level content that our MRO audiences have come to expect from Aviation Week Network.

More details to come but MRO TransAtlantic will offer enhanced matchmaking opportunities, networking and high-quality educational content on a global scale.  It will also compliment the content that will be provided a month earlier at MRO Asia-Pacific Virtual.  The addition of MRO TransAtlantic to the MRO roster completes the 360° look that Aviation Week’s MRO portfolio has been providing for the last 20+ years.

We understand how important the entire MRO series is to the industry and how much effort goes into preparing for it and so, in this difficult time, we would like to thank our community for its understanding and support.

We’re looking forward to continuing the conversation and our role in driving our industry onward and upward, connecting our communities and supporting businesses.

If you have any questions regarding the change from a physical event to the virtual replacement, please contact events@aviationweek.com and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
