This week has been full of anticipation of the Singapore Airshow Aviation Leadership Summit (SAALS), returning this year as a part of the Singapore Airshow.
SAALS and the Business Forums offer an opportunity for government delegations and aviation industry leaders to discuss key challenges in the business aviation industry.
Held on 12-13 February 2012, the summit will bring together airlines, manufacturers, airports and governments, and a mix of speakers and delegates who will provide both depth and insight into the discussions.
Under the theme ‘Driving Change, Overcoming Challenges Together’, the summit will address long-term growth and sustainability in the aviation business, security and climate change.
Mr Yap Ong Heng, Director-General, Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), said: “This year’s theme is particularly pertinent, coming at a time when global aviation is facing a period of significant change and uncertainty which must be addressed through global collaboration. By bringing key global aviation leaders together for collective dialogue, we hope to shape new perspectives that can take the industry forward.”
Following their resounding success in 2010, another highlight of Singapore Airshow 2012 will be the Business Forums. Presented by top aerospace buyers, government officials and industry leaders, the Business Forums will give trade visitors and exhibitors the opportunity to understand procurement trends and strategies to tap potential business prospects and joint ventures in key Asian markets.
Singapore Airshow, Asia’s largest and one of the top three aerospace and defence shows in the world, returns from 14-19 February 2012 at the Changi Exhibition Centre. It has consistently drawn strong attendance from high-level military delegations, senior government officials and leading industry players. With the strong participation this year, the event looks set to be bigger and more spectacular, presenting the finest in aviation technologies and systems from some 900 companies across 50 countries.
