UPDATE: Irish Minister for Finance Brian Lenihan T.D to open the 11th Annual European Airfinance Conference, Wednesday 21st January, 9.00am
What better way to begin 2009 than attending the definitive annual gathering of the international aircraft financing community in Dublin in January?
Scarcity of liquidity, rising prices, increasingly cautious risk appetites... much has changed in aviation over the past twelve months, and much uncertainty remains as to how deals will continue to be financed.
Opportunities for financing aircraft are out there, but how will these deals be financed? When is the best time to buy an aircraft in the current downturn, and which are the best types of aircraft to invest in?
All these questions and more will be answered at the 11th Annual European Airfinance Conference, taking place in January in Dublin.
Over 700 delegates are due to attend the conference next week, making this the largest and most comprehensive meeting of the airfinance industry worldwide.
Testimonials from previous delegates include:
"The most important event in the industry"
Christian McCormick, Natixis Transport Finance
"Great networking opportunity"
Nirmal Govinda Das, Emirates
"The ideal place to meet the industry and to have the temperature of the market"

In current turbulent market conditions it is vital that financiers and investors understand their assets. So much has happened in the past twelve months in the financial markets and in aviation that it can be difficult to know for sure which aircraft models will hold their value, which are the most lucrative to invest in, and which types of assets will lose their value in today's volatile investment climate.
Investing in Aircraft and Engines 2009 is well recognised in its own right for delivering excellent indepth market information from senior industry players on aircraft and engine values.
Key topics to be discussed include:
- Knowledge is power: Which aircraft models are holding their value in current turbulent market conditions, and which are not faring so well?
- Just how fuel and noise efficient are engine types currently on the market?
- Focus on regional aircraft: Are regional jets the smartest investments to weather volatile fuel prices and make maximum operational cost savings?
- Evaluating engine maintenance reserves and the portability of total care packages in present market conditions
- Industry assessment and predictions for investment in aircraft for 2009
Over 150 airlines, lessors, manufacturers, and consultants are due to attend the "Investing in Aircraft and Engines Day 2009" Day next week.
