2013 - Sponsorship Opportunities 


The Air Canada Pilots Association realizes that, from a business standpoint, no resource is as important as Human Resource. Having completed two successful Winter Operations conferences, the Association is searching for potential sponsors to aid in the launching of a third. We in the Flight Safety Division of ACPA would like to invite you to contribute to what is sure to be another exciting conference within the aviation industry.


The goal of the conference is for the global aviation community to explore the latest innovations and best practices for operating safely in winter conditions. Under the theme “Safety is No Secret”, industry-leading experts in the many facets of winter operations will share lessons through their experience with delegates from around the world.


The conference will be held on October 9th and 10th, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Vancouver. Your generous sponsorship would be highlighted through the opportunity to exhibit and become a recognized vendor amongst leading aviation representatives, as well as to share any innovative or unique developments with key individuals within the international aerospace community.


With a previous audience of 276 delegates from 18 countries around the world, the marketing potential gained through sponsorship is why many of our generous supporters continue to offer exhibitions and product development seminars with noted industry results.

we would like to invite you to be part of this conference designed to improve the safety of the aviation industry while under winter conditions.
