Boyd Group International Prepares for Aviation Summit in Las Vegas

Boyd Group International, a leading aviation research, forecast and consulting firm, is bringing its forecast summit back to Las Vegas after a record-setting 2014 Summit which attracted executives and leaders from all over the aviation industry. The 20th Annual International Aviation Forecast Summit is being held Aug. 30 – Sept. 1, in Las Vegas at Bellagio Hotel. New this year is the China-U.S. Aviation Opportunities Symposium, a pre-summit event which will focus on industry opportunities as trade and traffic continues to expand between the two nations.

This year’s IAFS will highlight the major changes coming in global aviation and air transportation – from air service and airline consolidation to the business opportunities in emerging markets such as China. CEOs and senior executives from more than 30 leading airline and aviation companies will present their views of the direction of the industry and the emerging opportunities that will unfold in the future.

Numerous issues will be addressed including shifts in air travel demand patterns, the coming influx of foreign airlines into the U.S., air travel demand patterns, the trend toward regionalization of air access for many regions of the U.S., the airports which will experience growth and ones that will decline, major shifts in airline alliances, and the impact from airline fleet planning strategies affecting future travel patterns.

A significant number of speakers who will be providing their perspectives which will shape the future include CEOs and senior executives from American, United, Delta, Southwest, A4A, Allegiant, Spirit, JetBlue, Virgin America, Air Canada, Alaska Airlines, Viva Airline Group, Korean, Japan Airlines, U.S. Travel Association, Lufthansa, Air China, South African Airways, Republic, and Condor/Thomas Cook. The presentations and lively discussions will outline what will unfold in the coming decade.

In addition, global fleet and aircraft demand trends will be reviewed, with participation from Airbus, Boeing, Embraer, Bombardier, and Mitsubishi. The effects of new-generation airliners and the retirement of older models will have a material effect on how airlines across the globe will plan and strategize route systems for the future.

As always, a cornerstone of the event will be the independent forecasts from Boyd Group International, including U.S. & North American traffic projections, forecasts of emerging trends, and the respected Boyd Group International Global Fleet Demand Forecast.

For additional information and to register, Hotel reservations at the Bellagio in Las Vegas can be made through the same site.
