Era Corporation to Host Annual Customer Conference

RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - August 15, 2007) - Era Corporation will host its annual Customer Conference, September 11-13, 2007, in Washington, D.C. Customers and industry experts will convene for a 3-day seminar for attendees to network, discuss industry trends and learn how to gain the most value from their Era airport operations products.

As airports continue to grow in size and complexity, they require more-powerful applications and accurate, real-time flight tracking data to optimize operations. Era has been selected by numerous leading airports to deliver to meet this challenge across many airport functions.

The conference will include notable guest presentations from Woodie Woodward, former FAA Airports Associate Administrator and Era's own VP of Strategic Programs and former FAA Director, David Ford. The theme of these presentations will be geared toward future airport systems and how Era's can improve operations today, while creating an infrastructure for the airport of the future.

"We are pleased with the response we have received from our clients and partners who will be attending our seminar. This is a sign that we not only continue to provide solutions that exceed clients' expectations, but that they continue to rely on Era for their evolving needs," said Bill Colligan, Era's Vice President and General Manager, Airport Operations Solutions. "We are excited about the opportunity to spend time with our valued clients and to better help them solve their current challenges, as well as ensure that our products provide unparalleled utility in the future."
