The Isle of Man Aviation Conference is fast approaching – Have you registered?

The IOM Aviation Conference is fast approaching and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever!

As you know, the event will take place on Wednesday 22nd of June 2022 at the Villa Marina in Douglas, Isle of Man. Organised by Martyn Fiddler Aviation and supported by the Isle of Man Aircraft Registry, the conference has a simple mission to bring business aviation professionals together in a friendly, business-focused environment.

After two tiresome years of lockdowns and social distancing, we are looking forward to welcoming our friends, colleagues and clients back to enjoy the conference and celebrate our 10-year anniversary.


The Agenda So Far

Inspired by looking to the future, the agenda will focus on the challenges the industry is facing, as well as recognising successes and how far the industry has come. We will focus on sustainability and transformative technology, aircraft values and supply, the charter market and governance. In order make the conference content as relevant and as engaging as possible, we have hand-selected speakers who specialise in each field and offer a wide range of knowledge on each subject.
