30th Annual Canadian Airline Investment Forum

September 12-13  |  Westin Harbour Castle  |  Toronto, ON

Critical factors and innovative strategies that influence your future direction and investment opportunities in the Canadian aviation industry.

The Canadian Airline Investment Forum brings to the forefront the critical factors and innovative strategies that influence the future direction, day-to-day operations, and investment opportunities in the Canadian aviation industry.  Now in its 30th year, the Forum is widely recognized as the premier aviation event in Canada and is well attended by senior executives from Canadian airlines, aircraft manufacturers, and financial institutions.

As a global industry, the financial profitability and operational efficiency of the aviation sector is affected by numerous factors; from geopolitics, and technological innovations, to regulatory and consumer demands, demographic shifts, service interruptions, equipment supplier issues and environmental concerns.  

The 2019 Forum program will address the headwinds facing the industry today.  How will new regulations and policies affect the industry?  What are the innovations and investment opportunities available in the industry?  What are the strategies that are gaining momentum to finance deals?

Chair's Welcome Letter

It is a great time to be a Canadian airline and the future remains very bright. To stay ahead in the evolving world of aviation finance, we invite you to join leaders in our industry and their advisors on September 12 and 13 at the 30th Canadian Airline Investment Forum in Toronto.

Back for its 30th year, this one-of-a-kind conference features a number of new speakers and updated content, and offers an unrivaled platform for interactive discussion.

Financiers and aircraft operators will benefit from learning what new deals are being arranged, what terms are demanded, what structures are favoured and how risk is being managed. With the industry experiencing a shift from traditional financing to new products, some of the questions to be addressed include:
  • Are traditional financing vehicles a thing of the past?
  • How is climate change altering passenger travel?
  • What are the latest developments in the areas of capital markets solutions, operating leases and ECA financings?

Insight Information has organized an outstanding event that includes an expert faculty featuring senior executives from the major Canadian airlines, and representatives from the world’s leading aviation banks, aircraft lessors and aircraft manufacturers. Join our faculty of experts and a large group of your peers for a unique opportunity to explore the crucial relationships between airlines, manufacturers, financial institutions and investors, and learn how innovative strategies are being employed for greater growth and profitability.
