MRO Russia & CIS 2021 in figures

The largest MRO dedicated event in the region covering Eastern Europe and Central Asia to be held in-person on September 15-16 in Moscow

MRO Russia&CIS (ATO Events)

32 international and local MRO providers and material suppliers at the exhibition hall; two panel discussion and five workshops with over 30 panelists at the conference – these are the main parameters of the largest MRO dedicated event in the region covering Eastern Europe and Central Asia. The 16th international exhibition and conference MRO Russia & CIS 2021 will take place in-person, on September 15-16 in Moscow World Trade Center.


In July this year Russian airlines’ combined traffic reached 12.5 million passengers, just 12 per cent down on the same month of the pre-COVID 2019, according to the recent report by the country’s aviation authority Rosaviatsiya. The Russian air travel market clearly continues on track of a steady recovery.

The significance of the domestic market, Russia’s relatively stable economy and the mass vaccination of the population, which is gaining momentum, pave the way for air travel market recovery in Russia, which may outpace the global recovery rates and create favorable opportunities for MRO market recovery.

What changes are re-shaping the aircraft maintenance industry? How can industry stakeholders adapt and streamline their business in the new reality? What is happening in engine and component repairs? These – and other no less pressing questions will be discussed at the conference’ panel discussions, involve top managers from local and international leading providers and airlines, such as S7 Technics, А-Technic, TS Technic, Lufthansa Technik, VD Gulf, Aeroflot – Russian Airlines, Ural Airlines, Utair, Red Wings, Smartavia and others.

MRO Russia & CIS event in 2020 was the last of the aviation industry’s conventions held offline in 2020 against the background of the pandemic spreading across the globe. And it was our first successful practical experience in arranging the business event in а New Normal situation.

Since that time ATO Events held a dozen offline events of a different scale. The health and safety of our colleagues, partners and audiences remains our number one priority.
