‘Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.’

Ireland leads the world in aviation because of the hard work and vision of everyone in the industry. We must strive to keep our advantage.

No economist could have foreseen what happened in March 2020 when the entire industry was upended. With a return to service in the aviation industry almost two years later, there is profound sense of relief. It is a time for positivity and optimism – a time to look forward, and up! Aircraft are back in the sky, and life is starting to look a lot better again.

After a successful Leaders Fireside Chat in 2019, the Shannon International Leasing Conference is delighted to hold the event again this year. The Terrace Room in Dromoland Castle will be our venue for an evening of informal chat, and networking. Attendees will be made up of senior delegates from guest companies and sponsor companies.
