AMDA Foundation has scheduled the next RotorTech conference and exhibition for June next year after the 2021 event proved so successful.
Holding RotorTech on 21-23 June 2022 means that there will be one year between events when there has traditionally been two.
AMDA Foundation Chief Executive Ian Honnery said industry feedback from revealed a strong appetite for another RotorTech “sooner rather than later”.
“We believed that industry sought an in-person event as a platform to begin rebuilding confidence and reaffirming face-to-face relationships," Mr Honnery said. “RotorTech 2021 fulfilled that goal, and industry participants quickly indicated a desire for another RotorTech in 2022.”
AHIA President Ray Cronin said the event provided an important forum for highlighting the challenges and successes of the industry.
“RotorTech is where the industry showcases its achievements and brings together a wealth of knowledge and experience from which the industry will grow and benefit all participants,” he said.
“Our industry is dynamic and challenging, and it’s important that we take advantage of face-to-face network opportunities such as those afforded by RotorTech.
"We look forward to doing that again at RotorTech 2022.”
This year's event was postponed from 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions, but despite the challenges resulted in record numbers of exhibitors and conference attendees.
Demand was such that the event had to be transferred from its home on the Gold Coast to the Royal International Convention Centre in Brisbane, the same venue that will host RotorTech in 2022.
