Corporate Jet Investor Miami 2019

12 & 13 November 2019 | Fontainebleau Miami Beach

As soon as our delegates walked into the lobby of the iconic Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel they knew that they were at a very different sort of business aviation event. It wasn’t just the CEOs and industry leaders all gathered in one relaxed venue, but also the way they used the event to take stock of the market and plan for 2020.

Deals were closed – and both new and pre-owned aircraft were sold – but the real value came from the long-term nature of the content and relationships developed from their few days at the event.

Over two days, all that attended enriched their knowledge during the insightful presentations, dynamic panel discussions and debates – hearing from the people shaping the industry. TED-style presentations were limited to 20 minutes and audience participation was encouraged, resulting in probing questions and lively audience interaction.

There were also over 22 hours of relaxed networking opportunities during the cocktail receptions, Dealmakers Dinner, Flight Cap After Party, breakfasts, lunches and refreshment breaks, enabling delegates valuable networking time spent with new and old contacts.

More than 300 senior level financiers, manufacturers, operators, brokers, arrangers, lawyers, appraisers, and many others active in business jet transactions came to Corporate Jet Investor  Miami19 – as they do each year.

If you are involved in business jet transactions, this event would have provided a unique platform to meet with decision makers, discover new opportunities and stay updated with the latest developments.

Headquartered in Montreal, Canada, Bombardier Inc. boasts a heritage of innovation that dates back to the start of civil aviation, spanning some 110 years. The acquisition of Canadair in 1986 was the first of several strategic moves that would see Bombardier consolidate leading aircraft design and manufacturing experience from around the world. In the following six years, Bombardier grew in strength and stature, by acquiring in 1989 the world’s first aircraft production company -- the Northern Ireland-based Short Brothers -- followed soon thereafter by Learjet of Wichita, USA, in 1990, and de Havilland Canada in 1992.

In 2014, the former Bombardier Aerospace was reorganized into three segments in order to enhance agility and respond quickly to evolving customer needs, changing market dynamics and world events. Each unit – Business Aircraft, Commercial Aircraft and Aerostructures and Engineering Services –reports directly to the President and Chief Operating Officer of Bombardier Inc.
Bombardier Business Aircraft offers the industry’s broadest portfolio of business jets with its popular Learjet*, Challenger* and Global* aircraft families. In their respective segments, the Learjet 70* and Learjet 75* aircraft feature superior cruise speeds, high climb rates and operating ceilings, and competitive operating costs. In the medium category, the Challenger 650* and class-defining Challenger 350* offer industry-leading cabin design and amenities as well as performance and reliability attributes synonymous with the Challenger family.

The Global* long-range aircraft family – with the popular Global 5000* and Global 6000* jets in production delivering the smoothest ride in business aviation – is led by the all-new Global 7000* aircraft, the only purpose-built four-compartment cabin designed to deliver uncompromising levels of range, speed and cabin comfort. The historic first flight occurred November 4, 2016, and there are currently four aircraft engaged in a comprehensive flight test and certification program. Having celebrated a strongly successful international debut at NBAA-BACE in October 2017, the Global 7000 is scheduled to enter service in the second half of 2018.

Bombardier Business Aircraft supports its customers globally through an international network of field service personnel and a combination of wholly owned and authorized MRO facilities that include newly operational Bombardier service centers in Biggin Hill, U.K., and in Tianjin, China. This growing network also includes 24/7 customer response centers, mobile parts delivery services, spare parts depots, and pilot and maintenance training facilities.
