MRO Americas had been rescheduled for September 1-3, 2020 in Dallas, Texas. The unprecedented postponement was necessary to protect all of our customers and employees. As we all dealt with this crisis, Aviation Week remained committed to our customers’ success.
As the pandemic continued, Aviation Week needed to adapt with the introduction of MRO TransAtlantic, a virtual conference which brought together our North American and European audiences for 3 days of virtual panels and networking.
As our first in-person event since the beginning of 2020, MRO Americas 2021 was an important opportunity for our community to come back together and begin the road to recovery.
As the industry focuses on accelerated ramp-up after the pandemic, learn the hottest trends, experience new ideas, services and products, all while reconnecting with the MRO community! Taking place on April 26-28, 2022 in Dallas, TX, we are so excited to see you there!
