Accelerating the growth potential for business aviation in Central and Eastern Europe will top the agenda for the second annual Cepa Expo, which will be held November 28 to 30 in Czech Republic capital city Prague. According to Dagmar Grossmann, founder of the Central European Private Aviation Association (Cepa), market conditions are generally stronger in that part of the continent than they are in Western Europe.
The Czech capital Prague is set to host the third annual Cepa Expo conference and exhibition at a time when the pace of business aviation growth in Central and Eastern Europe continues to outstrip that in the West of the continent. The November 28 to 30 event is organized by the Central Europe Private Aviation Association (Cepa), which was formed in 2009 to promote the industry’s interests in countries such as Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Serbia, the Slovak Republic, Slovakia and Slovenia.
