Since 2014, this event has brought together hundreds of cabin safety experts from airlines, regulatory agencies, governments, manufacturers and suppliers to address the most important cabin safety challenges.​​​​​​​​​​​​​ 

This year the Cabin Ops Safety Conference (COSC) has took place in Lisbon, Portugal on 14-16 June at the Epic Sana Lisboa Hotel. 

The COSC attracts delegates from airlines, emergency equipment suppliers, regulators, training providers, training equipment manufacturers, investigators, human factors specialists and all functions from cabin and safety operations.

It brings together all aspects of Cabin Safety under one roof, allowing you fantastic networking opportunities with others in your field of expertise. 130 international organizations, including +100 airlines, regulatory agencies, investigation organizations, aircraft manufacturers, and suppliers attend this event each year.
