News From ISTAT
Year after year, aviation professionals from around the globe converge to discuss market trends, hear updates from manufacturers, catch up with old friends and make new ones at ISTAT Europe. With 1,200 in attendance, this year's event did not disappoint.
ISTAT Europe was held 4-6 October at the Hilton Prague and featured a heavy-hitting lineup of speakers, as well as several networking opportunities. The conference kicked off on Sunday with walking tours and the ISTAT NewGen Event held at the historic U Fleků beer garden. This event is one of the newest additions to the schedule and allows the younger generation of professionals a special time to gather together and meet industry veterans.
"We’ve added 700 new members this year," said ISTAT President Marc Allinson during his opening address. "Amazing response. We’re going all around the world with our events." Allinson also thanked  ISTAT Executive Director Ron Pietrzak for his years of dedicated service to ISTAT. "He lives and breathes ISTAT," Allinson said of Pietrzak, who will retire at the end of the year. Julie Wichlin was introduced as ISTAT's incoming executive director.
Several of the panelists examined the issue of a potential capacity glut due to rising production rates. Audience response showed that 37 percent of the audience believed that the glut will be realized by 2018. Other popular topics of discussion included the slowdown of the Asian markets, oil price and interest rate forecasts, and the unpredictability of the Middle Eastern market.
