LONDON, Aug. 23, 2012 /CNW/ - New to the series this year, the Airline E&M: North America Conference (South San Francisco Conference Center, San Francisco, USA Oct 30 - Nov 1) offers critical updates on airline MRO in the United States and Canada. Bringing together key decision-makers from the region's airlines, OEMs, independent manufacturers, suppliers and MRO providers, the event stands out from its competitors with a speaker line-up that comprises senior representatives from both service-providers and end-users.
Speaking on behalf of UBM Aviation, Programme Editor - Jim Whittock, described the event as "a must-attend for all those involved in airline engineering and maintenance in North America who want to stay informed about the strengths and weaknesses of the most cutting-edge products and services the industry has to offer. The fact that we've been able to give a voice to the end-users of those products and services - senior airline representatives from the continent's largest airlines - will steer the conversation away from the standard sales pitches towards a more critical, balanced discussion".
Key discussion points at the conference include:
- Intelligent aircraft and the implications for maintenance
- Adapting to composite materials
- New engine technology
- Modifications to interiors
- RFID technology and its universal compatibility
- Developments in I.T solutions for supply chain and asset management
