NEW YORK, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- AVIATION WEEK will present the 13th annual MRO (Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul) Europe Conference and Exhibition and MRO Military Europe on September 28-30 at the ExCel Center in London. Both conferences and the associated tradeshow will bring together airlines, operators, OEMs, MROs, suppliers, military personnel and government officials to examine the state of the aerospace and defense (A&D) industry and prepare for the industry's future as it recovers from the global economic crisis.
MRO Europe's "Taxiway to Takeoff: Turning Challenges into Opportunities" theme captures topics related to the A&D industry's recovery from the recession, including ideas for improving inventory deployment, applying effective management strategies, maximizing supply chain efficiencies, understanding demand planning and forecasting, and attracting and retaining a global workforce. MRO Military Europe will focus on sustaining aircraft and other military assets in the midst of increasing pressure on defense budgets.
These co-located events will offer opportunities for attendees to network with the industry's finest professionals during in-depth workshops and in a sold-out exhibition hall. Conference sessions will deliver best practices and case studies from MRO and aviation leaders, such as:
- Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Dalton, Chief of Air Staff, Royal Air Force (UK)
