Cabin Ops Safety Conference

Vancouver, Canada
16 - 18 June
JW Marriott Parq Vancouver

We continue to monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation carefully and regularly. Our number one priority is always the health of our speakers, delegates and staff.

We are following the guidance of the World Health Organization (WHO)—the global authority on public health issues—and the local Public Health Ministry. Currently we are going ahead with the event as planned. If the situation changes, we will announce this on our website and inform all registered participants.

In the interim, please refer to the IATA Travel Center, for daily updates on travel restrictions.

Since its launch in 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.​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Now with a six-year track record, our goal in 2020 is to provide the ultimate delegate experience by featuring a programme the includes industry’s most pressing topics, what to do about them, and to benchmark best practices from leading airlines.

With Western Canada's majestic Rocky Mountains as its backdrop, the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver boasts a distinct sense of place in British Columbia with beautifully designed accommodations and impeccable service.
Anchored by the stylish neighborhoods of Gastown and Yaletown, the hotel is at the epicenter of downtown Vancouver’s dynamic entertainment district.


The 2020 COSC will take place in Vancoover. Located at the southwestern corner of the coastal province of British Columbia, it is well known for its majestic natural beauty, as it is nestled between the Coast Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. It is frequently ranked as one of the best cities to live in and is certainly a beautiful destination to visit.

The city's numerous beaches, parks, waterfronts, and mountain backdrop, combined with its cultural and multi-ethnic character, all contribute to its unique appeal and style.

The full program is coming soon!

Workshops at COSC 2020:


  • IOSA Deep dive

This workshop is aimed at providing you with background information to help you more fully understand IOSA Standards and Recommended Practices, their intent, their foundation, their history and more importantly how to comply with them.  Bring your IOSA questions, problems and concerns and we will do all we can to help you.


  • Inadvertent Slide Deployment

The issue of inadvertent slide deployment remains a concern for many airlines, but not an issue for some.  This workshop intends to take a look at the scale of the issue worldwide, discuss what works for some and not others and take a look at some of the potential solutions. 


  • Cabin Crew Workload Management

Cabin crew workload appears to be increasing for many reasons.  This workshop intends to look to the future and attempt to identify to what extent can we help manage cabin crew workload and what impact it have on communication, fatigue, customer service and safety compliance.
