The Farnborough International Air Show, which opens July 14, is one of the biggest, most important events in aviation. It is a premier gathering place for aviation decision makers of all types. But every Farnborough Air Show brings the same dilemma: what’s the best way to manage your time? The show is truly vast, with a mind-boggling array of vendors, booths, special events, demonstrations, press conferences, and chalets. How can attendees sift through the enormous barrage of information?
That’s why Aviation Today, the most trusted web site in the aviation industry, is offering a new webinar: “Your Survival Guide to The Farnborough Air Show”. Speakers at the webinar will be Michael Boyd, president, The Boyd Group, Richard Aboulafia, vice president of analysis, The Teal Group, and Michel Merluzeau, principal, G2 Solutions. The moderator will be John Persinos, publisher and editorial director, Aviation Today. All three men are longtime veterans of the Farnborough Air Show and they’re plugged into the network of players who will attend.
During this webinar, you’ll get practical advice on how to make the most of this crucial, but often daunting, international event.

Specifically, you’ll learn:

  • What to expect from the two corporate giants that tend to dominate the show, Boeing and Airbus. What’s in store from these two archrivals? Who will emerge on top? What’s the real news, behind their usual propaganda war?

  • What major new aircraft, technologies and products will manufacturers unveil at the show?

  • What new alliances and partnerships can you expect to see announced?

  • How will the show serve as a proxy for the worldwide aviation market? What’s the best way to interpret the economic trends and statistics that will be presented at the show? Which numbers are meaningful, and which are simply white noise?

  • From all of the pronouncements expected at the show, which will be the real scoop, and which will be a lot of PR nonsense? How can you separate the hype from reality?

  • Which press conferences and industry events should you make a special point of attending, and which can you safely ignore?

  • What hidden surprises await attendees? Is a new and unexpected merger in the offing? Which major aviation executives are on their way up – or out?

...and lots more!

This webinar also is a participatory event, in which the moderator fields questions from you, the registrant, and presents them to the speakers for discussion in real time.
