Electronic Flight Bag Users Forum Slated for June 13-15 in Vienna

WARRENDALE, Pa., April 19, 2017 - Registration is open for the next EFB Users Forum to be held June 13-15, 2017.  This conference will be hosted by Austrian Airlines at the Vienna Marriott Hotel.  It is hard to comprehend that many major airlines had no EFB program when we started the Forum in April 2010.  Today, the EFB Users Forum is the world’s largest conference dedicated to EFB, and regularly attracts over 300 participants from around the globe.

The presenters at our very first EFB Users conference set a high bar for providing current, relevant, and actionable information.  We still strive to provide that singular experience at every event.  In Vienna, we will review the latest Regulatory developments, progress in Security and Connectivity, advances in Performance Applications, and airline Operator Experiences.  As always, you will get candid answers direct from the authorities on each of these subjects, and can even chat with them during one of the breaks or at lunch.  You will also hear from different airlines that have never previously presented at the Forum. Where else can you learn so much, in one place, straight from the experts? 

A supplier exhibition also will be included.  It will include airframers, hardware and software suppliers, system integrators, and service providers who will showcase their products and services.  The EXPO will include a standup buffet featuring Viennese favorites and drinks from 5:00-7:00 PM.  Please be sure to stop by to see the latest offerings – you will not be disappointed.  If you do plan to exhibit, please make your arrangements with Lori Hess at:
