Aviation auditors are set to descend on Dubai after the International Association of Airline Internal Auditors (IAAIA) announced today July 08 that it will stage its annual conference in the emirate from October 19-22.

The meeting, named ‘Success Through Sharing’, will be the first in the Middle East with a view to discussing the current status of the industry and the role of auditors in helping restore confidence to the aviation sector.

The conference will bring together the best in the profession worldwide, where they can share their knowledge and experience,” said MA Siddique, chief internal auditor of Emirates Airlines. “Delegates will also have the chance, quite literally to “get to grips’ with real life business situations and audit issues,” he added.

Over 100 professionals from the airline auditing community are set to attend the conference with Tim Clark, president of Emirates and James Hogan CEO of Gulf Air lined up to address the delegates.

The IAAIA was created in 1991 aiming to develop and maintain audit standards for the airline industry. It currently possesses over 50 international passenger and cargo airlines as its members, including household names such as Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Continental and British Airways.
