Top aviation executives from around the world will return to Las Vegas for the 20thAnnual International Aviation Forecast Summit Aug. 30 – Sept. 1.
Boyd Group International, a leading aviation research, forecast and consulting firm, is bringing the conference back to Las Vegas after a record-setting 2014 Summit, which attracted more than 600 airline and airport executives and other leaders from the aviation industry to the destination.
“We are delighted to bring the Summit again to Las Vegas,” noted Michael Boyd, president of the Colorado-based aviation consulting firm. “This event is focused on futurist planning and innovative thinking. That certainly is also a description for Las Vegas, which makes it the perfect venue for this event.”
This year’s Boyd Group International Aviation Forecast Summit will highlight current issues facing the aviation industry, including traffic forecasts that will impact the future of aviation, global airline fleet demand, and aviation industry trends. The Summit’s unique discussion format allows attendees to interact with industry CEOs and high-level executives. The event is co-hosted by Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) and Las Vegas McCarran International Airport.
“We are excited to welcome this important aviation event back for what we know will be another successful year,” said Rossi Ralenkotter, president and CEO, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority. “Travel to Las Vegas continues to grow, particularly internationally, and Las Vegas remains the perfect setting to discuss the future of the industry while also showcasing the many reasons why Las Vegas means business.”
New this year is the China-U.S. Aviation Opportunities Symposium, a pre-Summit event, which will focus on industry opportunities as trade and traffic continues to expand between the two nations, particularly after the U.S. and China agreed last year to extend the validity of short-term tourist and business visas to 10 years.
“China is now the largest single economy in the world, and we believe Las Vegas is the perfect venue for an event to explore new aviation opportunities it represents,” Boyd said.
