WAMEA UPDATE 2020 Airworthiness Symposium & Trade Show Postponed

Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding as we’ve navigated this difficult situation.

We have been working tirelessly this week to gather facts, information, and contingency plans to bring you a Symposium experience that would help you navigate one of the most troubling times our generation has seen. In light of recent events, it has become clear that is not possible.

It is with heavy hearts that the WAMEA board stands united in our decision to postpone the 2020 WAMEA Symposium. We cannot provide an optimal or safe experience for attendees in the face of travel restrictions, health concerns, and the implications for your business should a quarantine situation arise.

We hope that this proactive and transparent move allows us to stay safe and conduct business in a less uncertain October time-frame.

That is why we are pivoting the 2020 WAMEA Symposium to October 1 & 2, 2020 (Registration will re-open in May 2020).

We are grateful that you chose to register for the 2020 Symposium and it is important to us that we provide you with options. We hope that you will join us for the new dates so that we can work together in the economy and industry building that is going to be needed.

Option 1 is to transfer your registration, sponsorship, or exhibitor booth to the new dates.

Option 2 is an outright refund.

Please contact Candace from the WAMEA office at to let us know which option you would like to exercise. We will reach out over the next week if we do not hear back from you.

The Best Western Premier Calgary will automatically cancel your hotel reservations for the Symposium. There is no need to call and cancel your hotel reservation.

The conversations we’ve had over the last couple days has proven how lucky we are to be part of the supportive, tight-knit industry. We thank you for your support of the Western Aircraft Maintenance Engineers Association and look forward to seeing you at the 2020 Symposium in October.
