The MRO Military event actually took place during MRO Americas 2017. The MRO Military Symposium was hosted April 26 – 27 in the Orange County Convention Center (the same location as MRO Americas). The event was supported by the Logistics Officer Association (a non-profit organization of civilians and military officers in acquisition, technology, and logistics industries). A military round-table discussion/ problem solving event took place (Session 24). Military leaders asked the attendants to find solutions to a series of presented problems and concerns presented.

Due to the prevalence of information and technology in aviation, MRO Americas had designated part of the exhibition floor to IT. The new IT Zone showcased maintenance technology best practices, products, and services that greatly help MRO’s with operational efficiency. There were multiple opportunities to ask questions and get demonstrations of new maintenance and repair technologies.
Attendees were very excited to see the new GSE area at MRO Americas 2017. Focus on ground support equipment maintenance has grown over the past few years. In an effort to decrease costly repairs, MRO’s and FBO’s are putting greater emphasis on preventative maintenance for ground support equipment. The new GSE area included opportunities to ask GSE maintenance questions, see new tooling, and find suppliers. The MRO Americas pass included access to the GSE Pavilion.
