In response to the Covid-19 global pandemic, the Modification and Replacement Parts Association (MARPA) will be converting the May 27-28, 2020 conference (originally scheduled to take place in Stockholm) to a virtual conference. The new title will be the “MARPA Spring 2020 Virtual Event.”
MARPA President Jason Dickstein explained, “MARPA is committed to the health and safety of the aviation community and of the flying public. This virtual event will allow the industry to share ideas and learn about new developments without risk and without incurring additional attendee expense. We’re excited about the idea that attendees will be able to join the event from their office or home computers.”
MARPA and SAS jointly decided that the responsible move was to protect health and safety by convert the Stockholm event into an online event. Dickstein expressed his gratitude for SAS’ efforts. “We want to thank SAS for their generous offer to host the 2020 event at their facility; we’re very sorry that current health events will preclude us from holding a live event in Stockholm. SAS is an airline system with a long history and tremendous people, and I know that they are going to continue their history of success after Covid-19. I hope we can arrange to partner with SAS in 2021.”
The MARPA EMEA Conference is an annual event held in Europe, Africa, or the Middle East to educate aerospace professionals about the FAA-approved PMA aircraft parts manufacturing industry. It offers aerospace manufacturing industry professionals an opportunity to meet with customers, and to learn about the latest developments in safety management on a global scale to foster international trade. In 2020, MARPA is proud to be partnered with Scandinavian Airlines Systems (SAS) and the U.S. Department of Commerce and supported by our sponsors at HEICO, Jet Parts Engineering, Peidmont Propulsion Systems LLC, and R&D Dynamics.
