5th annual, Caribbean Aviation Meetup

The next, 5th annual, Caribbean Aviation Meetup conference will again be held on St.Maarten/St.Martin on June 15-17, 2021.  CARIBAVIA as the event is popularly called, is the most significant results and solutions oriented communication platform on the subject of ‘airlift’ in the region. It has gained increased appreciation by international professionals and experts of the aviation, tourism and investment industries.

Under consideration is to extend the event to a full ‘Aviation Week’, because of the interest from other organizations to join-in this week with meetings, workshops and sessions.

“We format and shape the event towards the current needs and the future opportunities in the region which is a dynamic process,” according to conference chairman and coordinator Cdr. Bud Slabbaert. “We use foresight and look beyond current situations. One should not be surprised next year to see a demonstration of taxi-drones at the conference by one of the major multinational aircraft manufacturers. We are not focusing as much on growing numbers of participants, but therefore rather on rising the quality and value of the content of the presentations.”

CARIBAVIA is characterized by encouraging interaction between the professionals who present their case and those in the audience who not just listen but request a microphone to ask questions or to make comments and suggestions.
