The GIAS 2020 will be held under the theme of ‘Enabling Global Aviation Growth through Fund Raising and Key Partnerships’, according to a press release.
The three-day event is expected to embrace more than 200 investors and 1,200 delegates, as well as selected government officials, aviation organisations, finance and insurance firms, aviation asset owners, aircraft operators, and logistic service providers and legal consultants.
