This February, 2015, PNAA 2015 is being held by the Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance in Lynnwood, Washington. We’ve compiled a list of the top 6 reasons you should be attending the conference!
1. West Coast Aerospace Companies Gathered in One Place
PNAA 2015 is the largest event of its kind on the United States West Coast. With so many key players and companies gathered in one place, it will be a great opportunity to network and gain insight. This event will be especially relevant to c-level executives, strategic planners, program managers, and aerospace professionals. With vital industry intelligence about the global aerospace market and ample networking opportunities, PNAA is sure to be a fantastic conference.
2. Learn from Amazing Industry Speakers
One of the main reasons as to why people attend conferences is to receive vital industry information that they can take back and use to benefit their organizations. This year at the PNAA Annual Conference the theme is “Mastering the Momentum”, all about managing risk and opportunity in the global aerospace and defence supply chain. To talk to this topic and provide vital intelligence and analysis are some of the industries leading experts from OEMS and Tier 1s. Some speakers to look forward to are Kent Fisher of Boeing, Simon Pickup of Airbus Americas, Scott Hamilton of Leeham Company and more.
3. Tour Advanced Manufacturing Training and Education Centers
This is the first year where attendees have the opportunity to go on a tour of an Advanced Manufacturing Training and Education Center. The facility is home to Everett Community College and is a 37,000 sq. ft training facility that replicates a real manufacturing facility. Other tours available are those of the Boeing Everett and Boeing Renton facilities.
4. The Suppliers Fair
The Suppliers Fair at the PNAA Aerospace Conference is the MUST attend event of the week. Held on Thursday, February 12, from 1:30-5:00 p.m., attendees are able to participate in B2Bs with representatives from OEMs and select Tier 1 and 2 suppliers in 15 minute meetings. This is a great opportunity to get ask questions and get your capabilities in front of the big companies.
5. Seattle is an Aerospace Hub
The event is taking place in Lynnwood, Washington, which is conveniently located in one of North America’s largest Aerospace markets. While you’re staying in the area, take advantage of the location! Not only is Seattle and the surrounding area a cool place to visit, but it is also home to a large number of big Aerospace companies, such as Boeing, Honeywell, Lockheed Martin, and Rolls-Royce. And when you’re done meeting major aerospace players, there’s the Museum of Flight! This tourist attraction is rated very highly and recommended to anyone who enjoys aviation or history (and let’s be honest, if you’re working in Aerospace, you probably do!)
6. Meet an Aversan Aerospace Professional!
The best reason of all to attend PNAA 2015? You’ll have the opportunity to meet an Aversan Aerospace & Defence professional, of course! Aversan will be present throughout the entire three day event.
