NEW YORK, Aug. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Aviation Week Network will hold MRO Asia-Pacific September 20-24 as a virtual event due to current Singapore travel restrictions. The event is free to registrants and will provide expert led content, matched networking, and a marketplace where the airline, OEM, MRO and supplier communities will discover and showcase new products and innovations, connect with and source new and existing business partners, and share knowledge and best practices.  

Aviation Week Network announced that MRO Europe will be held in person October 19-21 in Amsterdam and plans a host of other live events during the remainder of this calendar year, including Aero-Engines Europe in Stavanger, Norway, December 1-2.

“Over the year we have pivoted many of our events to a virtual format and they have exceeded all of our expectations,” said Lydia Janow, Senior Vice President of Events for Aviation Week Network. “The response from the aviation community has been tremendous with thousands of attendees making new business contacts and sales, learning about new products and sharing knowledge.
