Posted 18 June 2019 · Add Comment

Although the organisers of the Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) are preparing with almost military precision for what is proving to be the fastest-ever selling show taking place in July 2020, it is urban air that is set to lead the Airshow’s features, with the world’s biggest single showcase of technology and innovation transforming how the world flies.

The Farnborough International Airshow 2020 marks the first time that the future of air transport will be so broadly exhibited.  

With over a year still to go, more than 90% of exhibition space has been sold or committed and international attendance is breaking records. New country pavilions already include India, Australia and Mexico with the total expected to exceed 30. Turkey, Portugal and the USA have all increased their pavilion size.  

Amanda Stainer (right), Chief Commercial and Partnerships Officer, Farnborough International Ltd (FIL) said: “The July 2020 Farnborough International Airshow is shaping up to be our biggest and most dynamic yet. et.

“We’ve seen major growth among defence exhibitors, Farnborough is the leading show for every aspect of civil, commercial and defence aerospace.     

“Around half of the world’s countries will be at Farnborough. Our show enables the global aerospace community to meet and do business in one place, over the course of a single week while gaining unparalleled insight into the technology and innovation shaping the industries we represent.”   

Exhibiting trends for the 2020 Farnborough International Airshow include a push by companies to occupy bespoke, standalone areas. Chalets demand remains high and has seen growth among new exhibitors looking to boost their profile at the show.     

Farnborough International continues to work closely with the UK’s Department for International Trade Defence and Security Organisation (DIT DSO) and industry representatives, on delivering a comprehensive delegations programme. The programme is widely acknowledged as core strength of the Airshow as it facilitates meetings with government, industry decision makers and companies throughout the supply chain, enabling exhibitors to achieve business objectives.
