On behalf of the EBAA and the ECFAC, we would like to thank all our Attendees for participating in the 4th Edition of the European Cabin Service Conference which took place in Brussels last week. We were delighted to welcome them at the Hilton Grand Place for this now traditional 2-day educational and networking Event.
Whether they are called a Flight Attendant, a Hostess, a Commercial Assistant or a Cabin Crew Member, whether they are a Caterer, a Cook, a Supplier, a Trainer, a Pilot or a Flight Technician, whether they are a civilian or a military, they joined us to learn about best practices in our industry, to share their thoughts and to “Prepare for Success”.
After four years, we are proud to say that this Conference already grew significantly. Not only because of the attendance numbers but also because of the increasing number of top quality Speakers.
This year’s agenda was pretty full and we trust that our Attendees enjoyed the various presentations that were brought to them by our Speakers and that they found our Experts’ advice useful. We prepared this Conference with passion but this wouldn’t mean much if it wasn’t in line with our Attendees expectations.
Therefore, we also wish to thank you for your feedback, your suggestions, your comments and critiques which will allow us to improve our programme and align to your wishes and needs. We are currently carefully studying the surveys that our Attendees completed in order to take as much as possible into account as of the future edition.
This edition saw three new Scholarship Winners. The winners were selected by the Scholarship Donors, in accordance with their respective application procedures.
- Fatosh Kalan was awarded a Training Scholarship for Flight Attendants at FlightSafety International in Paris Le Bourget (FR). She received this award from Christiane Gustave and Peggy Marchand on behalf of FlightSafety International as well as from Sharon Rose Arroyo and Tim Kirkwood on behalf of WCA (Women in Corporate Aviation).
- Matt Morawski was awarded a Five-Day Culinary Elite Class in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (US), including airfare and hotel. He received this award from Paula Kraft who is the Founder of DaVinci InFlight Training School.
- Andi Scott, who, due to last minute schedule changes, could not be present, was awarded a Train the Trainer Scholarship in Luton (UK). He received this award from Yasmin Milner on behalf of Corporate Flight Training.
We also take this opportunity to encourage each and everyone of you to APPLY for these Scholarship that are offered to you (and/or to any of your friends/acquaintances who consider a career in the Business Aviation) by various Companies, Associations and Institutions who wish to mentor you and to support you.
