Suppliers

  • No supplier shall invite or remove any airline personnel from organized events at any time during the scheduled course of the conference. Suppliers must wait until all organized events are finished as per the established conference agenda/schedule to arrange any off-site entertainment or meetings.
  • Suppliers must respect a “RESERVED” sign on any tables/chairs established during an event and shall not remove them.
  • All suppliers must attend all scheduled mini-meetings for which they have signed up. A “no-show” is a sign of disrespect and could result in a loss of any future meetings.
  • Any suggestions or comments that will help improve the conference should be submitted to the attention of the CCMA Suppliers Steering Committee President Lee Kapel at lee@tsiaviation.com with copy to ALTA’s Marketing Director Alberto Cortes at acortes@alta.aero for review and consideration.
  • Suppliers may register one person as a “companion” only if they are a spouse, close relative or a friend that does not work within the airline industry and will not be conducting business throughout the event. Companions do not have access to any mini-meetings, exhibition area or table top sessions.
  • A dress code is established for all events and Suppliers are expected to adhere to them. See Dress Code.
  • Suppliers should always remember that their participation is at the discretion of ALTA and the Airlines, therefore your conduct should be governed accordingly.
  • Any Supplier who wishes to be considered for a position on the Steering Committee must submit a request to the Steering Committee President with a short resume which states their goals and past involvement in the CCMA. All applications will be reviewed by the Steering Committee and then forwarded to ALTA for consideration. A probation period for any applicants accepted will be established.

The Committee will maintain a list of suppliers who will volunteer for membership.

No two individuals from the same corporate group can serve as Standing Members or Advisory members at the same time. Our Goal as a Supplier Steering Committee is to seek out for the interest of the Suppliers and to assist ALTA without being cumbersome. Consequently, we wish to keep the committee as lean as possible, but at the same time allow a select few who are interested, a more active role and participation.
