The launch of the 2018 Shannon International Leasing Conference (SILC) was held at King John’s Castle on Thursday evening in Limerick.
Atlantic Aviation Group were the main sponsors on the night and central to the launch was the announcement that Limerick Institute of Technology would be hosting the conference on 7th November, 2018. Now in its third year, the conference was initiated by twenty Shannon based aviation service providers, who combined forces to bring attention to the benefits that the Mid West can offer the industry, in terms of commercial cost benefits and international networking opportunities. Technical executives and engineers from the aviation leasing industry will attend the daylong conference in November.
The launch on Thursday night also highlighted the importance of providing and retaining human resources within the area. Conference organizer, Samantha Harding said ‘the collaboration between LIT and SILC this year is significant, in terms of provision of human capital to the industry, and the clear advantages to living and working within the Mid West region’. Business development manager of IASC, John Drysdale said ‘SILC creates a forum for the industry to engage with service providers, leasing companies, airlines and manufacturers, and with our partnership this year with Limerick Institute of Technology, we hope to highlight the significant opportunities that the region can offer in terms of skilled resources’.
