ISTAT Conferences and Events

ISTAT holds several events each year, giving members the opportunity to network and share knowledge relevant to the industry.

Conferences are held throughout the year and are open to members and non-members alike. However, ISTAT members do receive a significant discount on the cost of registration. The conferences cover industry issues addressed by prominent specialists. Enjoyable social programs help round out the agenda and offer participants a unique opportunity to network with colleagues.

In addition to our Americas, Asia, EMEA and Latin America conferences, ISTAT hosts receptions at unique venues in conjunction with the Farnborough and Paris Air Shows and also hosts annual holiday receptions at locations around the globe.

To provide a service to long-standing members who may be in temporary need who are between jobs and meet certain guidelines, ISTAT provides complimentary admission to many of ISTAT's events. If you are in need and believe that you may be eligible for this program, please reach out to Julie Wichlin, ISTAT’s Executive Director, at
