Opportunity Amidst Uncertainty

Uncertainty and disruption are the key drivers shaping the aerospace and defense markets today.  Economic, geopolitical and sector-related are creating new uncertainties as the industry attempts to bounce back following the Covid-19 pandemic. 

This period of profound change and shifting landscapes presents both constraints and opportunities for dealmaking, but investors are looking to remain resilient and optimistic in a volatile environment. Factors such as tightening credit markets, slowing economies, labor shortages, supply chain distress, geopolitical turmoil and global destabilization are presenting challenges, but what if this is the perfect storm for investment? The defense market is strong, innovative technologies are providing new business models for investment, and segments of commercial aviation and the aftermarket are ripe for consolidation. 

The 5th annual Aviation Week Network’s A&D Mergers and Acquisitions conference will gather industry experts to debate these issues, offering first-hand perspectives and insights from senior corporate and private equity decision makers and thought leaders. We will look at how aerospace and defense M&A are responding to industry turbulence and the best routes for value creation. 

The one-day program will feature a wide range of perspectives on the M&A landscape, interactive discussions with C-Level industry executives and take a deep dive into the commercial and defense M&A arenas. It will provide a unique opportunity for leading dealmakers, CEOs, business development specialists and analysts to gain valuable insights into the outlook, opportunities and challenges facing the industry.

This event is co-located with the 
A&D Supply Chain conference
January 31- February 1

The aerospace and defense supply chain is large and complex making it susceptible to disruption in ‘normal’ times, but the past few years have brought a greater set of challenges and constraints then ever seen previously. Global turbulence, geopolitical conflict, pandemic ramifications, volatile demand patterns, supply shortages, spiraling costs, rising inflation and pricing instability are just a few of the factors that have seen the A&D supply chain in a permanent state of distress and its fragility and vulnerability truly exposed. Register for an all access pass to attend both events.

Please note this event takes place January 31- the evening after A&D M&A concludes.  If you are attending both A&D M&A and the A&D Supply Chain Conference you are invited to join the dinner on January 31.
