    "There's a lot of key personnel here… it's good that you can get to talk to people and the right people are here to talk to, so if you're going to make an impression, this is a good place to do it." Mike Scimone, Donaldson
    "The sponsorship of the International Military Helicopter conference for us is quite important just because we have very few opportunities to meet a lot of the military helicopter operators, and they're here in force." Robin Taylor Hunt, Safran Turbomeca
    "The benefit for me in attending the event is understanding where other nations are in their capability development and understanding, culturally, how they're using platforms." Major Mike Neville, UK MoD
    "Excellent range of topic and speakers. I like that it's not only representatives from the industry but a lot of the operator world. It's important to have representation from different size countries and military styles." Major Youri Audy, 1 Canadian Air Division HQ
    "A very good mix!" Major Michel Gelders, Belgian Air Force
    "This conference is vital to gain visibility with important customers and potential customers in the military helicopter market." Heinz Scholl, RUAG Aviation

    "I think it's important for networking, simply across the military-civilian divide, the customer getting to know the supplier, the sharing of ideas – and there's nothing like meeting people face-to-face."Colonel Neale Moss, UK MoD

    "Great Spectrum." Iain Robert, AgustaWestland
    "This allows us to get our name out and make sure that the military customers out there have the full understanding of who everyone is. Being able to speak directly to the decisionmakers and influencers in this industry is what's key." Larry Alexandre, Heli-One
