Looks like an interesting symposium on Supplier Forecasting to be held in Seattle in March 2012.  This one-day Symposium will present key forecasts covering:

•    Global aircraft growth forecasts;
•    A special look at the developments of Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Embraer and the emerging markets as represented by China’s COMAC, Japan’s Mitsubishi and Russia’s Irkut;
•    Forecasts by Wall Street Aerospace Analysts who follow the supply chain;
•    Financing requirements and consolation in the supply chain; and
•    Forecasting near-term changes in the US Defense budgets and where opportunities will be.
