NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aviation Week Network's MRO Latin America (#MROLA) will be held January 22-23 at the Hilton Cartagena Hotel in Cartagena, Colombia.  Focused on commercial aviation maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO), the event offers a forum for exchanging information and best practices, and networking among industry leaders representing airlines, regulators, suppliers, and service providers.  

Over the next 10 years, growth in the Latin American market will outpace the worldwide demand for MRO services, according to Aviation Week Network.  The steady growth will lead to a healthy MRO market, growing to $6.7 billion by the year 2027.

In response, this event will provide drill-down discussions in an intimate setting with attendees focused on growing their organizations in South America, Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean.  More than 80% of the attendees are involved in the acquisition cycle as buyers, recommenders and influencers. 

The sold out Exhibitor Showcase will enable attendees to interact with solution providers showcasing tools, technology and services.  More than 400 attendees, representing companies from 25 countries in Latin America, North America, Europe, and Asia, will foster new relationships, strengthen existing ones, and expand reach across the MRO community.   Anyone interested in attending the Showcase must register to attend. 

“Latin America is a poised for rapid expansion in the MRO market.  Those who want to join this evolution do not want to miss the leading MRO event in Latin America,” said Lydia Janow, Managing Director/Events & Tradeshows, Aviation Week Network.  “This event gives attendees and exhibitors the opportunity to make contacts and meet decision makers in an intimate setting.”
