Ishka Trading Summit: Engines, Freighter & Part-Out

Wednesday 24 May, Conrad Dublin

Helping you navigate the complex end of the aircraft life cycle to get deals done

Ishka Trading Summit is a forum dedicated to dealmaking around midlife and end-of-life assets. Connecting engine lessors, aircraft asset managers, MRO shops, operators and more, it is a must attend for those looking to maximise returns in this highly complex portion of the value chain. Given the relatively high returns possible in this sector, it is also an opportunity for our investor community to gain an expert insight into the highly technical, but lucrative side of the industry.

For any group bookings and sponsorship queries, please contact Rich to discuss your bespoke package. To secure discounted accommodation and maximise your time onsite click here.

PLUS: Join us the day before (23 May) at our 6th annual, industry-favourite Ishka Aviation Finance Festival!

"A good quality smaller scale event that allowed scope for networking in the break out areas as well as providing for well moderated informative content during the sessions. Smaller scale events such as this are a refreshing contrast to the larger events and provide more intimacy. I would definitely be keen to attend another Ishka event." – Ben Graham-Evans, Smith Gambrell & Russell London
