Networking With the Chinese Air Carrier and MRO Community

With all of the rhetoric between US President Trump and Chinese President Xi, it is easy to forget that China is still “open for business.”  China still poses fascinating long-term business opportunities for the aviation community.

I have found that one of the best conferences for meeting Chinese air carriers and MROs is the Aviation Parts Management Forum. They have a history of getting all of the large MROs and air carriers, and a significant representation of the smaller ones as well.  If you want to sell aerospace articles or services into the Chinese market, I can think of no better conference at which to meet your Chinese customers.

The 2019 Forum will be held on March 28-29 in Xiamen, China.  A year ago, CNN’s Travel Section called Xiamen “China’s new capital of cool.”

The forum sponsor (Oppland) will soon be publishing their agenda for the 2019 Aviation Parts Management Forum, but for now a preliminary agenda is available on the website.

To get in touch with the organizers directly, send an email to Echo Sun at, or call her at +86 1356 463 7605.
