Malta Aviation Conference & Expo (MACE), a new B2B and B2C aviation networking event in Malta, will be held between October 30th and November 1st, 2019 at the Grand Hotel Excelsior, Valletta. MACE will include educational and inspiring keynote speakers and an expo hall, it being the first of its kind to be organised in Malta.  The main aim of the event is to create an environment of collaboration and cooperation for aviation leaders to come together and help each other succeed, profit and thrive. The event is supported by Transport Malta, and will be held under the patronage of EBAA (European Business Aviation Association) and MBAA ( Malta Business Aviation Association).

Speaking at the launch of MACE during a Press Conference, Stanley Bugeja and Jonathan Dalli, Founder Members of MACE said: “Malta is fast becoming Europe’s favourite aviation jurisdiction with a number of airlines setting up in Malta. The Maltese aircraft register has now exceeded the 300 aircraft milestone and more than 35 airlines call Malta home. Important MRO’s have setup in Malta and more are expected to follow suit. This is why we wanted to create a unique event to target delegates interested in or that are part of the industry and offer them the opportunity to engage directly with policy makers, business aviation professionals and end-users – one-of-a-kind and a first for the island”.

With over 165 delegates already confirmed for the event, MACE is Malta’s biggest ever conference & expo to be held on the island.

Launching MACE, the Hon. Dr. Ian Borg, Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects said,  “With a fast-growing aviation sector that is gaining momentum as we speak, Malta is well on its way to establishing itself as a hub for all things aviation. MACE is an excellent opportunity to foster healthy dialogue, collaboration and the sharing of best practices in such an important sector. Most importantly MACE will provide the right platform to deliberate on where we want to go. We have already achieved great results but my ambitions as Minister responsible for the aviation sector are much greater and we will work harder together with this industry to get there.”

MACE 2019 will include policy makers, operators, aviation industry professionals, legal & regulatory consultants and global users. The event will also include a number of international and local speakers who will be sharing their knowledge, including the Prime Minister of Malta, Dr. Joseph Muscat; the Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects, Dr. Ian Borg; the Director General for Civil Aviation, Transport Malta, Capt. Charles Pace; the Director General for Eurocontrol, Mr. Eamonn Brennan; Former NASA Scientist, Dr Anita Sengupta; the Director of Public Relations of Ryanair, Mr. Diarmuid Ó Conghaile;and the Executive Chairman of Knighthood Capital Partners and Former Chief Executive Officer of Etihad Aviation Group, Mr. James Hogan.

MACE was founded by DC Aviation Group, The Concept Stadium and Novargo.
