Organisers of the Paris Air Show today revealed that Britain will have the fourth largest number of exhibitors as they also unveiled a mobile application that visitors will be able to use to navigate around the Le Bourget site.

The 50th edition of the show takes place from June 17-23 and organisers say there will by 2,700 exhibitors and an anticipated 150,000 visitors.

Many of the event's top team, headed by chairman & CEO Emeric d’Arcimoles and MD Gilles Fournier, were at a press conference at the Royal Aeronautical Society in London today bringing the latest news.

Ease of movement was obviously on their minds, as they also revealed that a special radio station was being set up at Le Bourget with a 15km radius to bring exclusive traffic news.

“We want people to be able to move around the site efficiently,” explained d’Arcimoles. “The radio station will be the best way to avoid jams and, once inside the show, the mobile app will enable people to know where they are and plot the best route to their next appointment.”

Fournier revealed that exhibition space for the show had been sold out for several months. “I am a very happy show director,” he said.

British exhibitors make up the fourth largest contingent at the show after France, the USA and Germany.

There will be more than 100 British exhibitors – with 70 exhibiting in the ADS-run British Pavilion. In total, the British presence has increased 8% on the 2011 show, said the organisers.
