PNAA's 2013 Aerospace Conference "The Year Ahead"

PNAA's Conference is the premier aerospace conference held annually in the Pacific Northwest. The 2012 conference attracted 330 attendees, representing 198 companies from all over the US, and the World (click here to see the list of companies).  The  2013 conference will include, for the first time, a full day devoted to airlines and MRO business in addition to the regular commercial aerospace days, and an expanded Suppliers Fair.

Why should your company attend?

  • Keep abreast of timely issues that affect your business.  Hear from industry experts, including representatives from OEMs and Tier I/II Suppliers and the popular unscripted Analyst Panel.
  • Hear the latest industry outlook from Teal Group’s Richard Aboulafia.  In his highly anticipated annual update and forward-looking commentary, Mr. Aboulafia shares his forecast, sprinkled with his usual witticisms.
  • Grow your company contacts.  Multiple networking sessions, meals, receptions, and a centralized exhibit area make networking easy.  2012’s conference drew 330 attendees from 198 companies at all levels of the supply chain from all over the world.
  • Meet with major companies in the aerospace industry.  Due to extremely high demand, 2013’s Supplier Fair has been expanded to span a half day.  The Supplier Fair is a unique chance for attendees to set up personal meetings with representatives from OEMs and Tier I/II Suppliers.
