NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - December 22, 2016) - Aviation Week's MRO Latin America (#MROLA) will be held January 25-26, 2017 at the Now Jade Riviera Cancun in Cancun, Mexico. Focused on commercial aviation maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO), the event offers a forum for exchanging information and best practices, and networking among industry leaders representing airlines, regulators, suppliers, and service providers.
Latin America is expected to be the third largest market for deliveries, just after North America and Western Europe (ranked one and two, respectively), despite current tough economic conditions, according to Brian Kough, Director of Forecasts & Analysis with Aviation Week Network.
The experts will lead drill-down discussions, sessions, workshops, and business development opportunities in an intimate setting with attendees focused on growing their organizations in South America, Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean. More than 80% of the attendees are involved in the acquisition cycle as buyers, recommenders and influencers. Within 10 years, Latin America will comprise more than six percent of the world MRO demand for commercial aircraft.
The MRO Latin America Showcase will enable attendees to shop 40 solution providers showcasing tools, technology and service. More than 400 attendees, representing companies from Latin America, North America, Europe, and Asia, will foster new relationships, strengthen existing ones, and expand reach across the MRO community.
Topics discussed during the show include:
- Vendor Management
- Multinational Certifications and Regulatory Compliance
