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.
Who you will meet
Our previous events have attracted delegates from airlines, emergency equipment suppliers, regulators, training providers, training equipment manufacturers, investigators, human factors specialists and all functions from cabin and safety operations.
Why you should attend
It is the only event of its kind
This unique event 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.
Our highly popular workshops will give you numerous opportunities to ask questions and seek answers from your peers and share best practice ideas and suggestions.
The Cabin Safety Exchange
This session generates discussions among delegates and shapes and steers the work of IATA Cabin Safety in the years to come. Tell us your issues and we’ll work together to resolve them. Participate, interact and engage in the dynamic speed-networking event that discusses and captures important global cabin safety issues.
Stay on top of new developments
This event allows the industry to benchmark best practices from leading airlines and to work together to continue to enhance global aviation cabin safety. Plenary sessions are designed to bring important topics relevant to the current issues and developments.
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 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.
