Aerospace companies with a MRO focus are invited to take part in these 2 two-day missions. Day 1 of each mission is the group presentation and Q&A session where the European Commercial MRO and Aircraft Engine MRO OEMs, Lessors, Airlines and MRO companies will explain their plans, priorities and procurement processes. On day 2 of each mission participating companies will have an opportunity for private pre-arranged 1:1 meetings with European buying decision-makers who are looking for their products & services.

Why MRO in Europe?

The European aircraft MRO Market is projected to grow with a CAGR of more than 4% between 2020-2024. According to Aviation Week figures in 2021 Europe will account for $18.6 billion of the global aftermarket spend of $71.9 billion; and 39% of the overall European spend will generated by the engine segment.

  • Several European airlines have aircraft fleet with an average age of more than 14 years. The old and aging aircraft fleet generates higher demand for aircraft maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) which will propel the growth of the market during the forecast period.
  • The use of advanced technologies like augmented and virtual reality to facilitate the decision-making process, and to cut down the execution time for maintenance tasks are anticipated to support the growth of the aircraft MRO market in Europe.
  • Europe is one of the majorly affected regions due to COVID-19 and has resulted in the grounding of the majority of the commercial aviation fleet in the region, signifying an increase in the expenditure on maintenance for the airlines to ensure the airworthiness of their aircraft assets.
  • Western Europe is the world’s third largest engine MRO market

My love for the international events industry started just over 10 years ago. I came from the freight forwarding business where I was working on big shipments for trade shows. Once I dove into the sales side of the business, I found great satisfaction; I knew I was going to make a career here. I now manage a team of six outstanding sales associates who focus on helping U.S. companies grow their businesses and stand out from competitiors at shows around the world. Every day I look forward to building new relationships and helping our customers reach their export goals.
