Ishka Trading Summit:

Midlife, Engines & Part-Out

15 May 2024 | Conrad Hotel, Dublin

Maximise returns in the complex end of aviation’s value chain

Our sophomore Ishka Trading Summit is a forum dedicated to dealmaking around midlife and end-of-life assets. Connecting engine lessors, aircraft asset managers, MRO shops, operators and more, it is a must attend for those looking to maximise returns in this highly complex portion of the value chain.

Given the relatively high returns possible in this sector, it is also an opportunity for our investor community to gain an expert insight into the highly technical, but lucrative side of the industry. Expect candid and nuanced insight from leading expert speakers, key decision-maker attendees and hear directly from investors in the asset class.
