Event Overview

To celebrate Airfinance Journal's twenty-year presence in Asia Pacific in 2019, we are hosting the 20th Anniversary Airfinance Journal Asia Pacific conference during October 30th - 31st in Hong Kong. The two-day conference will gather more than 700 senior industry representatives from airlines, aircraft leasing companies, financiers, investors and manufacturers to discuss trending topics in the aviation finance industry, including but not limited to: 

  • Economic consequences of US-China trade war
  • Favourable market conditions that facilitate the rise of Chinese aircraft leasing companies
  • Impact of tax reforms on the effectiveness of JOLCO and JOL
