13 & 14 October 2020 | Virtual

Corporate Jet Investor Asia 2020

Corporate Jet Investor Asia 2020 went virtual

Although we cannot meet face-to-face in 2020, Corporate Jet Investor Asia still brought together a cross-section of leading financiers, lawyers, operators, brokers, insurers, manufacturers, appraisers and many others in the business aviation industry, involved in growing and supporting Asia’s fleet. 

Providing attendees with a unique opportunity to understand the region and meet like-minded professionals in the sector, there were still the opportunities to network with colleagues, pose questions to speakers and take part in interactive polling throughout the event.

Across two days, there were engaging and entertaining panels, interviews and presentations, selected to stimulate debate and discussion. Delegates logged off from the conference ready to return to their organisations with the latest insights and new ways to develop their business. Both the live and on-demand content is accessible to registered delegates following the event so that they ensure they have captured all the material available.

This event continues to attract senior level executives to discuss the opportunities and threats, develop the latest strategies and explore new sources of revenue within the market.

The carefully selected roster of speakers and panellists delivered relevant topics that were tailored towards you and others like you – including financiers, lawyers, brokers, operators, manufacturers, appraisers and arrangers.

We are living in these unprecedented times and while we may not be able to meet face-to-face, CJI Asia 2020 still  brought together the industry for quality information-sharing and networking.
