Battle Creek to Host Intelli-Conference 2007


Battle Creek To Host Intelli-Conference 2007
Symposium offers face-to-face forum discussion with Industry Experts, IA credit classes

On May 15, we will be hosting our popular Intelli-Conference Symposium and unveiling our newly expanded and renovated 325,000-square-foot facility in Battle Creek, Michigan.

Many are familiar with our Duncan Intelligence newsletters – faxed and e-mailed publications packed with valuable technical tips for the most-used makes and models of business aircraft.

A natural extension of these publications, the Intelli-Conference Symposium is your chance to discuss aviation issues with industry experts in a face-to-face forum.

The one-day event will feature six unique sessions, four of which are approved for 2 hours of IA renewal credit. We will be giving tours of the remodeled and expanded facility and will wrap up the event with our signature dinner experience at the Gilmore Car Museum.

Hundreds of aviation professionals just like you have taken part in these events during the many years we have been hosting them. It has been a few years since our last event, and we know that the demand will be high. So don’t delay, register early and be sure to get your first choice of classes – the schedule will allow you to take up to three. You will also have the ability to take a tour instead of a class if you wish.

Participants will also have the opportunity to meet with industry experts from AirCell, L3 Communications, Max-Viz, Rockwell Collins and Universal.
