Today, the MACE Founders launched the 3rd Malta Aviation Conference & Expo that will be happening between the 26th and the 28th of October at The Westin Dragonara Resort in St Julian’s, Malta; whilst also catering for a hybrid physical-online solution. MACE is Malta’s largest aviation conference.
The main aim of the event is to create an environment of collaboration and cooperation for aviation leaders to come together and help each other succeed, profit, and thrive, during an unprecedented period, but also with a keen view towards future-proofing the aviation industry. To this effect, the theme chosen for MACE 2021 is “Rebooting the Industry”, particularly following what has undoubtedly been a turbulent period. Delegates will have the opportunity to participate in live panel debates, meet industry suppliers and discuss the above-mentioned theme with regulatory officials, industry professionals and subject matter experts.
For the third year running, the event is being supported by Transport Malta, and will be held under the patronage of the MBAA (Malta Business Aviation Association).
Speaking at the launch of MACE 2021 during a Press Conference held today, Jonathan Dalli and Stanley Bugeja, Co-Founders of MACE said: “It has been a great experience for us to see this brand developing over the last 3 years as the go-to conference for aviation professionals from Malta and our guests beyond our shores. For two years consecutive years we have done so, with our conference in 2019 bringing together 350 people and the one in 2020 connecting over 450 participants online.”
MACE is yet again bringing the industry together, this time round to explore and discuss the how and what can reboot the industry to pre-pandemic growth. MACE 2021 is all about supporting the innovation discourse and its potential impacts on new and improved air mobility”
Also present for the press conference were the Hon. Dr. Ian Borg, Minister for Transport, Infrastructure and Capital Projects, and Mr. Joseph Bugeja, Chairman & CEO of Transport Malta.
Congratulating the MACE Founders, Hon. Minister Dr. Ian Borg said that MACE is an excellent opportunity to foster healthy dialogue, collaboration, and also sharing of best practices in the industry. “It is the right platform to deliberate on where we want to go, especially after the pandemic is over. It will also help us to rethink how this industy will thrive again”. He continued to say that the Maltese Government will continue to offer a supportive shoulder to help aviation get back on its feet.
Mr. Joseph Bugeja, Chairman & CEO for Transport Malta said that “it is a pleasure for the Authority for Transport to demonstrate its continued support to MACE. Transport Malta strongly believes that MACE is the appropriate medium to promote and foster Civil Aviation in line with its vision for its flourishing and dynamic Civil Aviation Directorate.”
