Las Vegas to host global aviation summit

Senior executives from the global aviation industry will meet in Las Vegas, 25-27 August, for a summit to discuss emerging changes affecting the sector.

The 24th Boyd Group International Aviation Forecast Summit annual event returns to Las Vegas following a record-setting Summit held in the destination in 2017. The event is co-hosted by the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA) and Las Vegas McCarran International Airport.

“Las Vegas and its airport, McCarran International, are emerging as the leaders in transportation and travel thought-leadership,” noted Michael Boyd, president of the Colorado-based aviation consulting firm, Boyd Group behind the Summit. “The event is focused on futurist thinking, and Las Vegas is the perfect venue to encourage new perceptions,” he added.

“The Boyd Group International Aviation Forecast Summit provides valuable and exciting industry updates and predictions, and we’re thrilled to welcome the event back to Las Vegas,” said Steve Hill, CEO and President of the LVCVA.

The Summit delivers forecasts for key sectors of the aviation industry, including passenger traffic projections, fleet trends, international cross-alliances, and airline industry strategies.

“McCarran International Airport is pleased to welcome back attendees of the Boyd Group International Aviation Forecast Summit,” said Clark County Director of Aviation Rosemary Vassiliadis, who oversees the nation’s ninth-busiest airport. “It’s also a perfect chance to showcase all that our airport and its surrounding community have to offer,” she added. “We’re excited to see its return to Las Vegas later this year.”
