Juliet Trew, Events Director at MRO Network said, "ap&m Europe is the leading commercial aviation aftermarket exhibition since 2003. Last year we brought together more than 3,800 aviation supply chain professionals, 25 percent of which are decision-makers with budgets of over £1 million to spend. As the only MRO show based in London in 2016 we look forward to another robust event again this year."

The events focus is to connect the airline supply chain with buyers from all over the world. "ap&m allows us to meet people we wouldn't normally get to meet," explains Stephen Taylerson, UK sales manager for Ambersil, and Antonio Da Silva Abreu, senior purchasing administrator for Luxair, agrees that the chance to meet contacts in one location is invaluable. "It's a rich experience for every buyer," he explains. "I met many contacts who I had never met in person before. It was a good opportunity as well to get tonnes of new contacts in two days all in one location."

The ap&m Europe exhibition will be open Tuesday, June 1 and Wednesday, June 2 bringing together more than 200 suppliers offering a wide range of aftermarket products and services including MRO service providers, OEM providers, parts manufacturers and distributors and supply chain and Logistics.

The popular 'Meet the Buyers' meeting space for airline/MRO buyers and exhibitors returns with its one day format. Last year 79 percent of buyers did business as a result of their meetings at the event.

The ap&m summit takes place the day before the exhibition on Tuesday, May 31 and consists of a full day's schedule of interactive panel discussions, industry case studies and technical presentations spanning a whole breadth of MRO topics including:

  • Regional and global market forecasts
  • Airlines' fleet expansion and company growth strategy
  • Effective maintenance and supply chain management
  • The role of OEMs in the aftermarket
