Ishka Trading Summit: Engines, Freighter & Part-Out

Wednesday 24 May, Conrad Dublin

The Ishka Trading Summit is a forum dedicated to dealmaking around midlife and end-of-life assets. Connecting engine lessors, aircraft asset managers, MRO shops, operators and more, it is a must attend for those looking to maximise returns in this highly complex portion of the value chain. Given the relatively high returns possible in this sector, it is also an opportunity for our investor community to gain an expert insight into the highly technical, but lucrative side of the industry.
