  Quote The SpeedNews Conferences consistently provide an excellent representation of speakers from the airframe and engine OEMs, as well as recognized expert industry analysts. Their presentation material is informative, thought-provoking and timely. Even so, the real value of the event comes through the Question and Answer periods, and the opportunity to network directly with both speakers and attendees."
