Dublin is delighted to present The International Air Transport Association in Dublin Convention Centre.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) is the trade association for the world’s airlines, representing some 265 airlines or 83% of total air traffic. We support many areas of aviation activity and help formulate industry policy on critical aviation issues.
IATA was founded in Havana, Cuba, in April 1945. It is the prime vehicle for  inter-airline cooperation in promoting safe, reliable, secure and economical  air services - for the benefit of the world's consumers. The international  scheduled air transport industry is more than 100 times larger than it was in 1945. Few industries can match the dynamism of that growth, which  would have been much less spectacular without the standards, practices and procedures developed within IATA.
At its founding, IATA had 57 members from 31 nations, mostly in Europe and North America. Today it has some 265 members from 117 nations in every part of the globe.

The World Financial Symposium brings over 750 financial executives and specialists together to share insights, discuss industry challenges and best practic?es for Aviation financial management.
IATA is led by Alexandre de Juniac, Director General & CEO since September 2016.

Throughout its life the EuroPD meeting has tried to hold to its ideals, that the advancement in PD therapy would always be driven by basic and clinically applied scientific advance. It has tried to bring together worldwide PD expertise to drive the development of the therapy, and to innovate in the way the meeting provides both knowledge to experts but also education to those new to the therapy. One hopes that the Dublin meeting will continue to achieve this and that future EuroPD meetings will adhere to these values and deliver on our mission of improving PD therapy.
