The annual MRO Russia and CIS international conference and exhibition – now in its 14th year – is proving ever popular, despite current political and economic constraints, the event’s organisers report.
Compared with 2018, the number of exhibitors for this year’s event has not decreased, even in these challenging times. Already some 80 exhibitors are booked to take part in the event being held at a Moscow venue that offers an area of 2,500 square meters.
Overall, the leading regional air transport industry event has already attracted some 1,000 delegates, including 300 representatives of airlines from Russia and neighbouring countries. This year, the convention is dominated by a strong gathering of representatives from components and spare parts suppliers, as well as air carriers and specialist maintenance and repair centres.
The 2019 exhibition is hosted the conference entitled: ‘The Present and The Future of Aircraft Maintenance’ at the only event in Russia and the CIS countries which is devoted exclusively to facing up to the obstacles and new trends affecting aircraft maintenance and airworthiness.
Conference attendees will receive up-to-date information on the state of the airline industry, including its main trends, and will be able to exchange experiences and network with colleagues from different countries. For these reasons alone, the event’s organisers always receive large numbers of thanks from visitors to the event.
This year’s conference programme has been expanded to include new relevant topics, including the transference of aircraft onto the Russian register, the introduction of new Russian civil aircraft, the better organisation of after-sales services, and the advantages of paperless document management in the MRO industry.
During the two days of the conference on March 5 and 6, seven parallel practical sessions (one more than in 2018) and two plenary sessions are held, with topics covering a broad spectrum of issues that representatives of the airline industry, both in the Russian and CIS regions and from elsewhere around the world, are particularly concerned about.
These subjects include increased digitalisation and information technologies affecting the aircraft maintenance industry; global MRO market trends; future business forecasts in the airline segment; operators’ plans to meet fleet development; the maintenance of power plants; work with aircraft components; the repair and modification of aircraft interiors; and improvements and amendments to the regulatory framework. Special attention will be paid to the issue of training of new engineering and technical staff and their qualifications.
On March 5, the best practitioners in the MRO segment will be acknowledged with accolades presented at the MRO Russia and CIS Awards Ceremony, a competition that was established by Air Transport Observer magazine (ATO.ru). For the second successive year, young talent in the industry – those under the age of 35 – will receive recognition awards.
