Farnborough International Ltd (FIL), organisers of the Farnborough International Airshow has reported strong demand for space at the biennial aviation showcase which takes place from 11th -17th July 2016. With still over a year remaining before the commencement of the show, FIL can confirm that the event is already 44% sold and compared to the same period in the previous show cycle, sales are up by almost 20%.

Speaking about FIA’s positive sales, FIL Commercial Director, Amanda Stainer said. “By the close of FIA2014, orders and commitments totalled a record breaking US$204bn and 23% of exhibition space had already been booked or reserved. This continued demand is a reflection that the international trade event continues to offer a global platform for business and delivers what our exhibitors are looking for.”

Key initiatives planned for the 2016 show include an increased civil and military delegations programme, extended Meet-the-Buyer event, more conferences and briefings, wider participation from the rotary, MRO, Space, manufacturing technologies and UAS sectors and an increased international profile from exhibitors and visitors.

Already confirmed is the successful Meet the Buyer event which will be increase to three days providing even more opportunities for SME businesses to meet with key aerospace decision makers. Over 1200 meetings took place in at the Meet the Buyer event in 2014 and to date has generated over £5m of business deals. Furthermore FIL is in discussions with various parties regarding a number of firsts including seeing the F35 Lightning II, COMAC’s ARJ21 and the Airlander from Hybrid Air Vehicles all flying at the show.

Stainer further added, “The early booking rate closes at the end of June and with only 30% of exhibition space in the halls and chalets remaining unreserved.  We would urge anyone considering participating at FIA16 to visit us on our stand at the Paris Airshow at the earliest opportunity.”

FIA16 is located in the UK Pavilion in Hall 2B, Stand no F146
