Posted 6 September 2018 · Add Comment

After three years at London's ExCeL, Helitech International - Europe’s largest event for the rotorcraft industry - has announced that the 2019 edition of the show will move to Farnborough International’s new permanent structure for exhibitions, Hall 1



The purpose built 12,500sqm multi-functional venue – which is 35 mins by train from London Waterloo and just 30 minutes from London’s Heathrow Airport – will provide exhibitors with enhanced facilities to showcase their latest solutions. The move follows feedback from both exhibitors and visitors who wanted an airfield location venue that would facilitate technology displays and live product demonstrations.

The airfield will enable exhibitors to offer test flights to potential and new customers, with Helitech International confirming that landing fees will be subsided for all exhibitors and visitors to maximise the potential of the new airfield location.

Michael Watton, Venue Director, Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre said: “Farnborough is internationally recognised for its role at centre of the aerospace industry, we’re thrilled to welcome Helitech International to our new Exhibition and Conference Centre.

“Rotorcraft fascinates and excites in equal measure, there is no better backdrop to showcase the best, the latest and the most innovative helicopters than here at the birthplace of British aviation, with a great venue that will enable the industry to meet, do business and grow.” 

Tim Fauchon, CEO, British Helicopter Association (BHA) said: “The British Helicopter Association welcomes the move of Helitech International to Farnborough to showcase the capabilities of the European helicopter industry and offer the industry a great venue – and airfield – to demonstrate the latest technologies and innovation. We look forward to joining rotorcraft professionals at the new venue in 2019.”

Speaking about the change of venue, Teresa Heitor, event manager, Helitech International, said: “We’re very excited to announce that Helitech International will move to Farnborough’s new exhibition hall in 2019. This follows customer feedback for a venue that will facilitate new business partnerships and enable our exhibitors to showcase their technologies.

“Farnborough International has a long history, rich in pioneering heritage and presenting cutting-edge innovations. We’re looking forward to welcoming the very best of the rotorcraft industry to our new UK home next year, where they will find facilities better suited to our industry requirements.”

Helitech International currently takes place alternately in London and Amsterdam, where it will return this October from 16-18 October 2018 at the RAI Amsterdam Exhibition and Convention Centre.
