HMG Aerospace has announced that LARA Asia-Pacific, the conference covering all aspects of low-fare and regional aviation in the world’s fastest growing market, is to take place on 17-19 October 2011 at the Hotel Istana, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.A draft programme on the theme “Strategy & Operations – the Asia-Pacific Way" has already been created with invitations to speakers set to be issued shortly. This announcement will give industry executives the chance to put the date in their diaries well in advance and also assist the organisers in delivering a speaker list of the highest quality.LARA Asia-Pacific has its ancestry in the successful ARA conference previously organised by The Shephard Press, from which HMG Aerospace purchased the commercial aviation portfolio – including the industry-leading magazine Low-Fare & Regional Airlines – in January 2010. Becky Howells, commercial & events director, HMG Aerospace, commented, “We’re excited to bring our own version of this popular conference to the Asia-Pacific. One of the questions most often asked of us since we bought the Shephard commercial portfolio has been whether we would reintroduce ARA. Well, we are doing just that, but we have new ideas for the conference, so we rebranded it to reflect that although it picks up from previous conferences, it will have HMG Aerospace’s own twist.”Further information on sponsorship and participation can be found at the LARA Asia-Pacific web page.
