EARLY BOOKINGS PROVING POPULAR FOR 2014 SHOW
Airshow Organisers, Farnborough International Ltd (FIL) is pleased to announce that sign-up for the 2014 Farnborough International Airshow is already looking positive with many companies taking advantage of the events’ ‘Early Bird’ deal saving 4% on the advertised rate for taking exhibition space at the show. To date, 36% of exhibitors from 2012 have already rebooked since the close of the show, just 5 months ago.
Hosted biennially, the next Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) will take place from 14-20th July 2014. Long considered one of the world’s leading aerospace events, FIA is core to many aerospace companies’ sales and marketing strategy. The 2012 event saw over 1500 exhibitors attend from 39 countries, 153 aircraft taking parting in both static and flying displays and orders and commitments to the tune of US$72billion. With over 100,000 visitors attending across the five trade days, the event is still as popular as ever.
Speaking about the positive sales, FIL Commercial Director, Amanda Stainer said, “Compared to the same period in 2010, these early sales are incredibly positive news reflecting the value our exhibitors put toward FIA as a global business event. We are also in talks with a number of exhibitors for multi-show deals. Their commitment to FIA past the 2014 show adds real weight to the importance of the event.”
FIL Chief Executive, Shaun Ormrod, further added, “As airshow organisers, we’ve worked hard to create a diverse show for a truly international audience - the 2012 event saw a massive 47% of its trade visitors come from overseas. We’ve developed feature-zones in Space, autonomous and intelligent systems, security and innovation; and worked hard to attract exhibitors from across the supply chain. They are keen to secure their space for 2014 which is a real testament to our continued effort to creating a global business event for the Aerospace Industry.”
The early booking discount for FIA2014 is available until 28th June 2013. The FIL team will be present at MEBA (Stand 450) and will be available to discuss requirements for FIA2014.
