A&D Mergers and
Acquisitions Conference

November 7, 2018/ The Peninsula, Beverly Hills, CA
Mergers and acquisitions are reshaping the aerospace and defense industries today. With commercial aircraft production and defense spending both hitting record levels, M&A has become a critical tool for gaining—and keeping—competitive advantage in these dynamic markets.

So now, more than ever, the aerospace and defense (A&D) sector needs unparalleled market intelligence and insight into the future. That’s why A&D’s leading media brand and intelligence source, the Aviation Week Network, has partnered with Lazard, the world’s leading independent financial advisory firm, with support from Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, and CSP Associates, Inc., to product the first Aviation Week A&D Mergers and Acquisitions Conference. This one-day event will provide analyses and insights from senior decision makers and thought leaders regarding the current mergers and acquisitions environment and its outlook.
Conference Focus
Topics to be covered include the challenges that could affect future deal making, from regulatory changes to market conditions and “disrupters.” Expert panelists will be on hand from the ranks of active deal-makers and leading advisors to provide first-hand perspectives.

Who Should Attend?
The Aviation Week A&D Mergers and Acquisitions Conference has been developed for professionals at all levels of A&D, from middle market companies to OEMs, private equity investors, and government officials, providing exclusive intelligence and enabling them to keep a competitive advantage in these dynamic markets.
