FARNBOROUGH INTERNATIONAL AIRSHOW ATTENDS AERO INDIA
Representatives from Airshow organisers, Farnborough International Ltd (FIL) will be in attendance at Aero India as part of the ADS UK Pavilion. Amanda Stainer, Commercial Director and Laura Tilling, Business Development Manager will be holding meetings with potential participants of the forthcoming Farnborough International Airshow which takes place from 11-17 July 2016.
Exhibition sales for the event have been extremely positive to date with 75% of space already booked or reserved. Along with the exhibitors that have signed multi-show deals – Airbus, Boeing, GKN, Thales and Martin Baker – confirmed bookings have increased compared to the same period in the 2014 show cycle with many exhibitors increasing presence for FIA16.
Speaking about the show, FIL Commercial Director, Amanda Stainer, said, “We are overwhelmed by the extremely positive demand to secure space for FIA2016 which can only reflect that we’re delivering a dynamic event for the international aerospace community. As we move forward with the development of FIA16 we’ll be working closely with all our exhibitors to deliver valuable content for the show that both our visitors and exhibitors will find valuable.”
FIA16 will also be looking to build on the success of FIA14 with more international participation. Stainer further added, “No other show provides a global shop window from all sectors of the aviation industry and we would encourage those international companies be they in MRO, Rotary, UAS or any other sector of the industry to contact the sales team at FIA to learn more about how the event can help them.”
Plans for FIA16 are now well underway and FIL, are looking to make some significant enhancements to the show in response to the exhibitor and visitor research. These include more networking and engagement opportunities, a larger civil delegations programme, improved participation initiatives for MRO, Rotary and Manufacturing Technology customers and enhanced exhibiting options for international and SME companies. The Space and UAS zones are now an integral part of the show and the Innovation zone will once again see increased presence.
