The event, which took place on the 4th and 6th October, drew representatives from 86 countries and hosted a sold-out exhibition, featuring more than 400 exhibitors. More than 600 attendees represented airlines, with a significant percentage at the buy or approve level.
“This was our best attended event to date in terms of visitors, sponsors and exhibitors,” said Lydia Janow, Managing Director/Events & Tradeshows, Aviation Week Network. “MRO Europe is designed and organised to bring the many aspects of the MRO industry together under one roof, to network, meet new contacts, re-connect with current customers and to hear and learn about industry trends. Hosting our event in London at ExCeL is ideal due to its proximity to London City Airport, its location and its seamless event space.”
James Rees, Executive Director, ExCeL London, added: “We are delighted MRO Europe returned to ExCeL for their 2017 event, with record breaking results. We are currently celebrating our busiest year for North American business, with more planners than ever choosing London. Alongside MRO, we have also hosted the likes of AAIC (Alzheimer’s Association International Conference), Enactus, Salesforce, AAPG (American Association of Petroleum Geologists) and Strata + Hadoop this year. We look forward to welcoming the team from MRO Europe back to ExCeL London in 2019.”
