The ASA Annual Conference continues to be THE premier event for the aviation distributor industry. Each year ASA provides attendees with a variety of business development and management, quality assurance, legal/regulatory and general industry topics in one comprehensive and engaging event! Boasting an environment that offers ample one-on-one interactions with all attendees, exhibitors, and speakers, this event is more intimate and manageable than many of the other industry meetings. Attracting aviation professionals from around the world, including 5 continents, the ASA Annual Conference brings a great range of attendees each year. Companies represented at the meeting include domestic and foreign air carriers, OEMs, suppliers, repair stations, distributors and more!

The program includes: 

General Sessions - Comprehensive assessments of the state of the industry. 

Workshop Series - In-depth analyses of specific business management, quality and legal issues. 

Exhibitors - Vendors showcasing items ranging from current inventory to innovative technology.

Networking Events - Multiple Receptions, Banquet Dinner, and day-to-day breaks & lunches.

Once again ASA is pleased to have its event co-located with the Aircraft Fleet Recycling Association (AFRA) Annual Meeting.
