Welcome back everyone!

As you have just noticed, our newsletter is getting a new look. You can now access all Aéro Montréal and industry news in a more intuitive way with a new visual. We hope that the result meets your expectations!

The fall “return” is full of major events in aerospace: the Symposium on Defence and Security, the Airbus International supplier conference and the Gilles-Demers Gala Evening are just around the corner. Other important milestones, such as the Global Supply Chain Summit and Aéromart, will follow in early 2019.

We are also relaunching, with our partners, the “Rise to the Future” promotion campaign. We want to respond to the labour scarcity challenge facing our entire industry, and also encourage vocations for young people and people undergoing a career transition.

Aéro Montréal will be pleased to keep you informed about the many other initiatives that are on the horizon. Happy reading!
