The MARPA 2017 Conference will be held October 25-26, 2017 at the B Resort & Spa. We are very excited about the Conference! There is a great deal of change happening in the industry and our program and agenda will reflect this. You can also look forward to a MARPA members-only morning and an afternoon workshop program on the first day, and a lounge space available during the conference. We also look forward to announcing some of the work that we've been accomplishing over the past year on behalf of the members, including some programs that should provide some new direct benefits to MARPA members.
The 2018 MARPA Winter Meeting will be scheduled soon in Washington, DC and is expected to take place during February 2018.
The Winter Meeting is an intimate opportunity to work closely with the Association and the Board on a topics of special interest to MARPA members.

There is no charge for registering for this meeting, which is open for all active MARPA members. If you would like to propose future discussion topics for the Winter Meeting, please contact MARPA.
This meeting typically includes presentations by government and trade association representatives. The meeting also includes a discussion of MARPA strategic objectives, initiatives, and plans.

The 2017 MARPA EMEA Conference was held in Dublin, Ireland on May 8-9, 2017 at the Hilton Dublin Kilmainham. MARPA was pleased to be host this Conference with the cooperation of the European, Middle Eastern, and Asian aviation communities.
This Conference brought together parts users (like airlines and MROs) and parts producers (like PMA holders) to learn more about how to integrate PMA parts into their systems to improve safety and reliability, as well as to save money. This was also an excellent networking opportunity. Operators and MROs have found that the reliability improvements, safety improvements and cost savings that can be discovered at this conference should provide tremendous ROI for the time invested.
This meeting included presentations by government and industry representatives on topics of interest to the community of aircraft parts users, as well as to manufacturers.
