IFALPA President Captain Ron Abel opened plenary with a welcome speech outlining three strategic goals to maintain a thriving piloting profession: safety, security, and "a secure future in a global world where the interests of pilots and other workers are protected."
Captain Abel thanked those present for their continued hard work and support during the challenges and successes of the past year, and acknowledged our valued sponsors for their role in making Conference a success.
Luxembourg Minister for Sustainable Development and Infrastructure François Bausch opened the 73rd IFALPA Conference in Luxembourg by speaking knowledgeably in support of the  piloting profession's challenges. Atypical employment, explained Bausch, results in a safety issue for pilots, cabin crew, and passengers alike. He spoke in support of Ryanair pilots and encouraged them to continue to fight for their labour rights.
He was followed by presentations by special guest speakers Alexandre de Juniac, IATA Director General and CEO, and Eurocontrol Director General, Eamonn Brennan.
EVP AMF Captain Rod Lypchuk introduced the proposal for a Regional realignment. CAR/SAM (Caribbean/South America) and NAM (North America) have been realigned to CAR/NAM (Caribbean/North America) and SAM (South America). The proposal included Constitutional amendments and amendments to the By-Laws. The result was a unanimous adoption of the changes.
IFALPA President, Deputy President, and Executive Vice-Presidents presented their Annual Reports. The Executive Board took the opportunity to thank their volunteers and report on the dedicated work of the Standing Committees, Technical Team, and all of the people who support their projects throughout the year. Though the words were spoken by Executive Vice-President, Technical and Safety Standards, Captain Patrick Magisson, the sentiment was echoed throughout each report, "IFALPA is indeed a people business."
BALPA Executive President, Captain Brendan O'Neal, presented a bid to host Conference in Manchester in 2021, following the already-selected locations of Berlin for 2019 and Singapore for 2020.
The Conference Committees each met to review the proposed IPs to be voted upon and discuss the excellent work they have done this past year. 
ALPA-S generously hosted the hospitality event at the Sofitel in anticipation of their hosting the 2020 Conference in Singapore. Captain Adrian Lim, Technical Secretary of ALPA-S, provided a warm welcome.
