LYNNWOOD — How to lead through change will be the focus of the annual Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance conference in Lynnwood.
The conference is planned from Feb. 12-15 at the Lynnwood Convention Center. The conference draws aerospace executives, suppliers and others affiliated with the industry from all over the world.
The nature of how the industry is designing, developing and producing airplanes is transforming, said Melanie Jordan, PNAA’s executive director, in a statement.
Being able to reduce costs and increase efficiencies through data analytics, automation and robotics and using advanced materials and manfucturing will be key, she said.
Speakers are planned from Boeing, Airbus and several large and small suppliers. The event will also feature speakers from Spirit AeroSystems, Dassault Systemes, Norsk Titanium, Triumph Group, Latecoere International and a panel discussion on aerospace disruptors.
Industry analyst Richard Aboulafia, with the Teal Group, is expected to deliver his “Global Aerospace Market Outlook.”
Kevin Michaels, president of consulting group AeroDynamic Advisory, is planned to open the conference with a look at the changing supply chain.
People who register by Dec. 15 will receive an early bird discount rate. Earlier this year, 620 people attended the conference representing 350 businesses from Europe, Asia and the Americas.
