Focus Is On Latin America And Caribbean Region
UBM Aviation and the Latin American and Caribbean Air Transport Association (ALTA) have announced the launch of a major new event for the region's airline engineering and maintenance community. The Latin America & Caribbean Engineering & MRO Summit 2012 will bring together senior representatives from the entire MRO spectrum from across the region, and their international counterparts.
Through this new partnership ALTA and UBM Aviation will work together for the benefit of the region's aviation industry. UBM Aviation's CEO Phil Callow said that "with regional MRO growth rates exceeding 5% annually over the next decade, this collaboration is the perfect marriage of ALTA's leadership in this rapidly-developing region and UBM Aviation's expertise at facilitating knowledge-sharing and networking in this industry." He added, "We look forward to working with ALTA to create a summit which will serve as the region's meeting place for airlines, MROs, OEMs, lessors and other suppliers from around the world."
"ALTA is delighted at the opportunity of working together with a world-class organization, like UBM, with expertise in such a broad range of aviation related services," said ALTA Executive Director Alex de Gunten. "This will allow us to apply our know-how and relationship-building experience in the Latin America and Caribbean, leveraging our leadership, expertise and presence in the Region to continue promoting a safer and more efficient industry."
ALTA recently held the long-standing and highly successful Aeronautical Material Procurement Committee (CCMA by its Spanish acronym), an event that hosted over 800 attendees and sold out nearly one month before the conference.
The region's airline community is supporting this new event which is expected to act as a catalyst for the development of cutting-edge maintenance and engineering services in one of the world's fastest - growing aviation regions. The conference will take place in Sao Paulo, Brazil, October 17-19, and will feature a high level summit, closed airline sessions, a gala dinner and a host of other networking and learning opportunities.
