Economist Conference's Roundtable on Aviation Management in Asia Pacific will be the major aviation conference held in the region in 2002. It will be held in Hong Kong bringing together the leading organisations in, and associated, with the aviation industry from entire region as well as the USA and Europe. Following our event, delegates will have the option to proceed on to Zhuhai, the venue of 2002 Airshow China. The timing of our International conference is designed to leverage off the timing of the China Air Show but will not be linked directly with it.

The global and regional business agenda bring together senior executives of airlines, aircraft and equipment manufacturers, technology providers and leading aviation-related companies from within the Asia Pacific arena and beyond. This will be a high-level discussion on issues affecting their business strategies for the coming years.

The aviation industry has been in a state of crisis world wide but signs are there that the industry is pulling together to recover. Asia-Pacific will need to do its part. Asia is the world's fastest growing region in air traffic, and of all wide-body aircraft deliveries over the next 20 years, 41% will be to Asia-Pacific airlines. With air travel expected to grow at an average rate of 9.3% over the next 20 years, China will be the world's second largest commercial aviation market. This aviation management roundtable will provide an analytical look at both the opportunities and challenges to be met by businesses in, or associated with, the aviation industry in the region. This Roundtable will specifically address key issues that will now drive airline profitability and the growth engines for the aviation industry, including the introduction of new technologies as well as changes in operational and administrative work processes.

The informative discussions with the key executives of airlines, manufacturers and government officials offer a unique opportunity not only to tackle difficult and pressing issues in the formal programme, but also to provide ample opportunity to network and discuss ideas in a less formal setting.
