STS Gears Up for the 2016 Air Carriers Purchasing Conference
Recognized as the most productive aviation conference worldwide, the ACPC brings airlines and suppliers together so they can meet, collaborate and develop relationships that may prove vital in solving important everyday issues throughout the aerospace industry. The conference’s numerous functions and activities also create a fun and energetic atmosphere where friendships are nurtured and business partnerships are strengthened.
You definitely don’t want to miss the most talked about event at the ACPC, and that’s The Merle Hellerstedt Golf Tournament being held at Canongate 1 Golf Club in Sharpsburg, GA. Representing the STS Team will be Tom Covella, Pat Tyler, Sam Rodriguez and our friend Greg Nelson from Delta to complete the foursome. A true southern-style breakfast will be served upon arrival and a BBQ will be followed up by the tournaments awards ceremony. After golf, the event’s welcome reception will be held back at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, which will start at 5 p.m. in the Marquis Ballroom.
On Sunday, you can expect the conference agenda to be filled with informative breakout sessions, meet and greets and the much anticipated Aviation Networking Forum (ANF). The ANF is a place for airlines to meet suppliers and network while they display their products and services on the issued table space. The STS Component Solutions team will be at Table 1103 during the ANF Session to discuss our OEM product lines, programs tailored specifically to customers’ needs that address reducing operational costs and efficiencies and any other global support needed. You can also find the STS Air-Pro team at Table 113 showcasing their hose assemblies and spares, custom kits and support capabilities that span multiple industries and applications.
Airline Round Table sessions will take place on Monday and Tuesday where suppliers can schedule mini meetings with target airline customers. Monday evening a semi-formal banquet will be held in the Marquis Ballroom followed by an exciting show from master illusionist REZA! Tuesday afternoon, following the second day of Round Table sessions and meetings, a luncheon will be provided to wrap up the conference and a performance from ventriloquist, musician and entertainer Taylor Mason.
The STS Team can’t wait to touch down in Atlanta! This year’s ACPC is sure to be another fun, memorable and productive industry event. We look forward to seeing you all there.
