“We can all agree that, ultimately, we are all seeking paths to positively improve the performance of our industry and can only do so through joint efforts at events such as this one,” said Ian Talbot, EVA Sales Manager.

“Whether your area of expertise is ramp safety, training or operational effectiveness of GSE, we can all contribute effectively to the aims of all stakeholders and create a culture of excellence.”

Speakers at the event include David Burgess, VP Global Fleet Management at Swissport, Paul Drever, General Manager – GSE Engineering and Standards at Menzies Aviation, and Danny Vranckx, CEO of Aviaco GSE.

The event will run for three days in total and cover a wide range of topics, such as telematics, ‘Ramp of the Future’ and increasing operational efficiency through aviation training.
