Meet the Buyers

Face-to-face meetings between buyers and suppliers


Meet the Buyers is a series of face-to-face meetings between buyers and suppliers.

Each exhibitor has 3 x 10 minute meetings included with their booth and are able to purchase up to a maximum of 6 additional meeting slots.

The Buyers are typically airline procurement / supply chain / logistics personnel and maintenance / planning managers, although some purchasing / technical representatives from maintenance providers, OEMs and Leasing companies take part as well.

How Does It Work?

Meet The Buyers takes place in a dedicated area in the exhibition hall on Wednesday, September 23, 2020.

Each exhibitor has 3 x 10 minute meetings included with their booking, and are able to purchase up to a maximum of 6 additional meeting slots. 

To ensure everyone gains maximum value, we have created a matching service that compares the capabilities of the industry suppliers with the needs and requirements of the buyers. Our custom built, online booking system is used to manage all the meetings:

  • Each exhibitor is sent a unique login ID and given access to the system, they can review the list of buyers, see what products and services they are most interested in and carry out research on those potential buyers to see if their fleet/equipment is compatible with their own capabilities.
  • Approximately 2-3 weeks before the show, the system goes ‘live’ for everyone at the same time and you are able to book meetings with the airline & MRO buyers of your choice and everyone gets to book at the same time on a first-come first-served basis.
  • Meeting slots are released in waves, with 50% available to book immediately, 50% after approximately four days and then bonus slots released a few days before the show.
  • If a buyer cancels, you are sent an automatic message prompting you to log back in and re-use your released meeting slot.

Benefits for suppliers

  • Choose from airline/MRO buyers who are most suited to your products and services
  • Take part in 10 minute, face to face meetings with decision makers from purchasing/procurement representatives who are in high demand
  • Match making system means both you and buyer are interested in the same products and services

Become a Buyer

We work closely with airline buyers to ensure that their participation at MRO Asia-Pacific justifies time out of the office and maximizes their return.
