Dispatches No. 470

Dear Members

We are working on InterManager Conference in Cyprus.

Date has now been confirmed: 12th March 2020, please make sure you reserve it in your calendar.

As always we are able to offer it Free of Charge for our members and their invited guests, thanks to our sponsors.

Very first draft for your consideration and …inspiration:


  • Accident investigation – How does the air industry manage to investigate without blaming aircraft crews?
  • HR issues in air industry – are there any solution we can learn from?
  • Artificial Intelligence – are we there yet?
  • Digital Support Center – Member’s presentation
  • Fires on the container ships – are we doing anything about it?
  • Mental health – is there a problem? Can we be a solution? Panel Discussion
  • Environment in 2020 – stick check after 72 days

I am calling for your participation in forming agenda. This is YOUR conference. If you remember last hear we had 100 people on the waiting list, I suspect this year will be even more popular.

I would like to start closing the agenda within next 2 weeks please.
