Electronic Flight Bag Users Forum Slated for May 15-17 in Miami, Florida

Registration is open for the next EFB Users Forum to be held May 15-17, 2018. This conference will be hosted by Avionica at the Miami Marriott Dadeland Hotel. Many 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 the first EFB Users conference set a high bar for providing current, relevant, and actionable information. In Miami, the forum will review the latest Regulatory developments, progress in Security and Connectivity, advances in Mobile Applications, and Airline Operator Experiences.  Attendees 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. Attendees also will hear from different airlines that have never previously presented at the Forum.

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 local favorites and drinks from 2-4 p.m. Please be sure to stop by to see the latest offerings.
