It will be followed by a day dedicated to Defence and MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul) activities and the promotion of the aerospace sector to the next generation of world class workers  on December 16, with Vitrine 2020, an activity dedicated to industry talent and human resources issues. Finally, December 17 will be devoted to international meetings and inter-cluster collaboration.

With this new approach, we will take stock of the industry's challenges and explore its capacity to innovate around the world in a safe and bold way," said Suzanne M. Benoît, President of Aéro Montréal.
