The Irish Business and General Aviation Association will be welcoming over 140 industry delegates to its second annual conference on 1 November 2023, when it returns to Adare Manor, Limerick.
Sustainability will be a prominent theme with principal sponsor Gulfstream Aircraft’s Charles Etter, Staff Scientist with responsibility for Environmental Strategy & Regulatory Affairs, chairing an early session on ‘Navigating aviation’s dynamic path to efficiency and sustainability.’
He will be accompanied by Stewart D’Leon, director of environmental and technical operations at the USA’s National Business Aviation Association; Alexander Kuper, vice president, EMEA of Neste and Nicola-Jane Sellers – group sustainability manager at Luxaviation.
IBGAA will evaluate on-demand, air charter– ad hoc, pre-paid fractional and pre-paid jet cards – at a time when aircraft choice has never been so broad and when activity in mid-size cabins continues to grow.
Doug Gollan, founding editor of Private Jet Comparisons, will lead a panel of experts, including Julie Black, Head of the UK based executive charter team at Hunt & Palmer and Air Charter Association deputy chair; Andy Priester, chairman & CEO, Priester Aviation / Mayo aviation and Dan Cook, sales director of Fly Victor.
Jetcraft’s Colin Dunne, in his newly appointed role as US sales director, will provide an in-depth update on how the industry is doing.
The one-day event will highlight activity of other aviation associations.
“We are delighted to be returning to Adare Manor to offer unsurpassed networking between business aviation and ultraluxe tourism professionals. We will have plenty to talk about and learn from both sectors and we look forward to aligning on business opportunities,” said IBGAA founding chairman Josh Stewart.
“This is brilliant event to attend for senior decision makers in business aviation, with its audience of corporate jet operators, private aircraft owners, charter users from various sectors (MICE, sport and entertainment), tourism, airport and luxury hoteliers.”
