COVID-19 Virus Update

UPDATE 6th May 2020


We are pleased to announce that we have further developed our plans for WATS, APATS and EATS for 2020 and 2021.

WATS 2020 will now be a Virtual Conference and Exhibition and is scheduled for the 8-10th December, at the same time as we launch the main delegate promotion campaign for WATS 2021, which will take place as planned 20-22 April of next year.

APATS 2020 is postponed until 2021 and a Virtual Conference will take its place for the week of 7th September this year, the original 2020 dates. This will be timed for our regional attendees and will cover a scene setting ‘Keynote Session’ followed by sessions on pilot, cabin and maintenance.

These will be optimized to focus on the key issues faced by each sub-group at that time and into the immediate future, and will be optimized for a virtual audience and will have a pre-recorded 40-45 minute sessions followed by a live moderated Q&A for a total 60 minute presentation.

EATS 2020 will go ahead as planned for 27-28th October in Oslo, Norway and will include virtual, partial coverage of the conference to ensure the maximum access within the region and for those who may wish to attend but may still be under travel restrictions.

CAT magazine will also host a series of monthly virtual conference sessions from May onwards, focused on topics of post covid relevance. It is clear that the airlines will look very different to their pre covid shape and such is the damage that this pandemic has inflicted that the future demands a very different approach. What does this mean for training and how can it be optimized?

Our #restartingtheengines series of weekly ‘think pieces’ on the future of our sector takes off on May 7th and we look forward to engaging with clients and friends on content and marketing opportunities in the next days.

Finally, CAT celebrates its 30th birthday in June of this year, and we look forward to celebrating this milestone appropriately given the changes we are all now contemplating.
