Trust Manager, John-Michael McCann and Business Development Manager, Stephen Colderwood attended the conference on behalf of Abacus Aviation, which was sandwiched between two evening networking opportunities and an additional networking opportunity the following day. The event is well structured and a must attend to hear about the latest topical issues within the industry and to meet with other aviation professionals from around the world.

The Isle of Man Aviation Registry is the largest dedicated corporate aircraft register in Europe and is renowned for its high regulatory standards and customer service levels. Since its establishment in 2007 the registry has enabled the Island’s aviation industry to develop and expand with a sound backbone, the conference having successfully completed its 6th year demonstrates this admirably.
