Once again the conference will take place at the Holiday Inn Kensington Forum ideally situated in South Kensington, London. The feedback that we received from delegates last year was that this was an ideal location for the conference being about 40 minutes travel time from Heathrow yet in a lovely central location in London.

Chaired by: Claude Thibeault, Medical Advisor, IATA; President, Consultants Aeromed,

The conference will offer an unparalleled opportunity for delegates to hear from leading aviation health experts and to network with their professional peers.

Presentations this year will be on:
REGULATIONS – COMMUNICABLE DISEASE OUTBREAKS
AIRCREW HEALTH
WOULD YOU FLY WITH THIS PILOT OR CABIN CREW? – Discussion with the Regulators
PASSENGER HEALTH

Once more we have a limited amount of sponsorship and a dedicated exhibition area at the event. If you are interested in booking or further information please email Lorna Titley on lorna@quaynote.ca

If you have any questions please telephone Alison Singhal on 44 (0) 203 560 8154 or Email alison@quaynote.com
