Highlights of MRO Americas

Thanks to all of the speakers, attendees, exhibitors and sponsors of MRO Americas in Phoenix. It was great to see so many of you last week.

FYI, you can still view our MRO Americas coverage (including live posts from several conference sessions--including the ones with FAA Association Administrator Peggy Gilligan, the MRO forecasts, additive manufacturing and Pratt & Whitney Aftermarket President Matthew Bromberg) for a few more days.
