“An overview of what it takes to grow your business within the Extended Airbus Supply Chain”

On July 1st, 2018 Canada became the fifth “home country” in the Airbus family, the first outside of Europe. Canadian aerospace suppliers now have better access to the Airbus global supply chain – worth $82 billion in contracts annually – extending across all of Airbus’ business lines and products, in both civil and military aviation.

The objective of this seminar is for Canadian aerospace suppliers to gain a solid understanding of the market and its opportunities, expectations and requirements. You will also learn about fundamental procurement processes within the Airbus Supply Chain and what you can do to enhance your value proposition.
