It’s 2019 and that means it’s the year of The International Paris Airshow, running biannually in the opposing year to The Farnborough International Air Show. After the numerous successes of last year’s Airshow we look forward in anticipation to Paris this year and what it will have to offer for the industry.
The International Paris Air Show is organised by the SIAE, a subsidiary of GIFAS, the French Aerospace Industries Association.
This, the 53rd show, will take place at the Le Bourget Parc des Expositions from the 17th to 23rd June 2019. Bringing together all the major players in this global industry around the biggest and latest technological innovations. In a very familiar format, the first four days of the Show will be reserved solely for trade visitors only, followed by three days open exhibiting and showcasing to the general public.
Boasting excellent exhibitor and visitor figures, the International Airshow’s are not to be missed. At every show, more than 150 aircraft are presented to visitors. A number of these exhibited aircrafts are involved in the flying displays held each afternoon. These impressive displays are one of the show’s most extraordinary selling points, giving the exhibitors the platform and opportunity to put their technology expertise into practice and showcase their latest innovations.
With such an amazing an event comes just as impressive demand, the Farnborough International Airshow recently posted news that places at their 2020 show are selling fast, so head over and get in touch before it’s too late. With it being the first post-Brexit UK show it could prove to be a pivotal exhibition year for both the industry and show. Of course, it was also nice to see our stand venture alongside MB Aerospace featured in the article imagery, the article can be found here.
The Aviation Industry
Each year the show looks to make itself bigger and bigger with the introduction of new industry innovation and technologies, driving the world of Aviation forward or perhaps even upwards. That being said this year will be no different, the biggest industry leaders from around the world will descend upon Le Bourget Parc des Expositions to deliver what they have to offer this June.
With the world moving closer to its next goals of becoming renewable year on year, electric powered machines are picking up pace. Offering different executions for technology outputs. We believe this to be the biggest influence in the aviation industry in 2019.
Electromechanical actuation and Electric planes are on the forefront of the mind moving into 2019.That being said, Electromechanical actuation, the main trend taking off this year is the shift towards aircraft manufacturers using more electromechanical actuation. Where this kind of actuation was previously limited to the likes of steering hydraulics, it has now spread to aircraft landing gears and flaps as more manufacturers attempt to go completely electric. Electric actuation allows aircraft engineers to take advantage of smart sensors to give pilots access to real-time system data.
Surprisingly or unsurprisingly, popularity has increased for electric aeroplanes, tipped to become key players in hub travel or short travel for journeys carrying 100–1000 people. This could therefore increase short distance travel, making the link between secondary and tertiary airports. This would also lend itself for electric aircraft manufacturers to look at entering the helicopter industry for high-end personal transport.
Our most recent experience of the International Airspace comes from 2018, we built exhibition experiences for two clients, Cadence Aerospace and MB Aerospace. Both clients recognising the opportunity to bring stakeholders together and entertain the highest profile clientele and use their stand space as a platform for business.
Building on a previous experience at the Airshows, we knew the primary objective were commercial business, therefore private and open meeting spaces are essential with good hospitality.
Developing eye-catching, brand re-enforcing statement for the primary function of hosting internationally based staff and pre-arranged, invitation only, meetings with existing/prospective clients, commercial stakeholders and investors.
Farnborough International Airshow attracts over 150,000 visitors during the week. The decision for Cadence Aerospace and MB Aerospace to exhibit definitely helped them attract potential opportunities for the future.
