The Farnborough Air Show has always facilitated business amongst the aerospace community. FIA 2018 is no different. In fact, it holds more relevance than ever for the industry and the aerospace supply chain. Here’s what the show promises to deliver:
FIA and IATA have together come up with a dedicated Air Cargo Conference Programme. This will be a two-day conference. You get to take a closer look at the future of Air Cargo and the impact of new technologies in this sector. There’s also a roundtable in the offing. FIA has teamed up with Flightglobal for an Airline Chiefs Strategy Roundtable. The participation of several high-profile airline heads makes it worthwhile.
Last but not least, this year, there’ll be two theatres where you can share and discuss major topics of the day. The topics could get interesting, ranging from space habitation to supersonic travel.
How do you think the aviation industry would look in 2030? Well, won’t it be interesting to find out how the airline heads perceive it? You bet.
Regular FIA features like the Innovation Zone and Space Zone will, of course, be there. But, those looking forward to something new are in for a treat at the trade show. You could witness the examining of technologies. Interested in automation, additive manufacturing, simulation, virtual and augmented reality and digitization? Head to Aerospace 4.0. It is dedicated to the fourth industrial revolution and the digitization of the industry. No wonder it has become a talking point of late.
The Live Product Demo Area now has an “Air Force Command Centre”. Want to see the products from the leading industry players in a real-life scenario setting? Here’s your chance. For the first three days, the area will only be open to invited delegations and guests. But, trade show visitors need not lose heart. They can explore the feature later, i.e. on Thursday and Friday.
The Cargo Village, which was first developed in 2016, will also be attracting a lot of attention. A featured aircraft, a dedicated exhibition hall and a two-day conference. That’s a lot to look forward to, right?
It’s a global affair. With 29 national pavilions confirmed, it indeed is. A significant European presence from Germany, France, and Spain further adds to it. So does the largest presence from China, with 25 participating companies. The best part is that a larger number of international exhibitors may be at the show this year. In 2016, they made up for around 71% of the total number of exhibitors. The expectations are higher this year.
The Farnborough Airshow 2018 has a packed aircraft programme. And whose aircraft can you expect to see? Antonov, ATR, Bell, Dassault, Embraer, L3 Technologies, Piaggio Aerospace, Pilatus and the like. Did you know that Mitsubishi MRJ will be making its flying display debut at the show? Exciting, right? Wait till we tell you that the US DOD will be bringing an F-16 for the flying programme and a C-17 for static display. That’s what you call excitement!
The new permanent hall, FINN, and these exciting, innovative features – we can’t wait for the show to begin. How about you? Let’s catch up at the Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre, and talk business. We have had successful trysts with aerospace and defence shows and can make you stand out at the next one.
