2022 MARPA Annual Conference
Since 2001, the Modification and Replacement Parts Association (MARPA) has hosted annual conferences that bring together experts and leaders within the PMA industry and regulatory realm to tackle key issues facing the modification and replacement parts arena. The 2022 MARPA Conference was recently held on November 2-3, 2022 at the Kona Kai Resort in San Diego, California.
The 2022 MARPA Conference provided an opportunity for senior executives, design and engineering staff, quality assurance staff, and compliance staff with PMA manufacturing companies to keep abreast of major trends in the industry. PMAs have been identified by air carriers as an important part of their cost-reduction plans moving forward from the pandemic, so the Conference featured useful information to help the industry move forward together.
In response to requests from MARPA members across the PMA parts industry for MARPA to help provide networking opportunities, MARPA once again facilitated a MARPA Member-to-Member Air Carrier 1:1 Meeting session at he event in order to provide MARPA member attendees with an afternoon of facilitated meetings between solutions provider MARPA Members and MARPA Member Air Carriers. The MARPA Member-to-Member Air Carrier One-on-One Meeting session will return during the 2023 MARPA Conference.
Please remember to thank our sponsors, whose generous support allowed MARPA to host this event to support our membership and the entire aviation community. Our industry-leading sponsors have helped MARPA do more than merely continue to work on behalf of the PMA community before, during, and now as the industry recovers from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic; they have allowed us to increase our efforts to promote PMA and to protect PMA. You can see our sponsor's names here on the website, as they were seen throughout the Conference. Sponsorship opportunities for the 2023 MARPA Conference are available now, so contact us to discuss how you can showcase your company before a global online audience.
