2nd Integrated Settlement Week (ISW2)
Important: ISW2 meetings moved to Montreal
Due to unrest in the surrounding regions, it was with regret that we announced the postponement of the Amman ISW2 Meeting. We are pleased to announce that the ISW2 will now be taking place at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth Hotel in Montreal, Canada - from the 2-6 December 2013.
The ISW2 provides an excellent opportunity for airlines and aviation suppliers to network with a broader financial and revenue accounting based audience.
