After a show in 2011 which welcomed record-breaking numbers of exhibitors and the remarkable arrival of Solar Impulse, the upcoming International Paris Air Show on 17-23 June 2013 will mark the show’s 50th edition and promises to be full of new innovations.
Despite the current uncertain global economic climate, companies from around the world have put their hands up to register massively for the next Paris Air Show at Le Bourget. Most of the large companies will be present, taking their place among the show’s 2,215 exhibitors.
The show’s organisation has followed an approach focusing on quality and innovation. This approach has been in place for several years in order to ensure that exhibitors, visitors and the press experience an effective and enjoyable show.
Some €50m have been invested in infrastructure at the Le Bourget Exhibition Centre and €4m in renovating the 350 business chalets. A certain number of improvements have also been made, including a mobile application with some world-first features (indoor & outdoor geolocation, flight schedules in real time, etc.).
SIAE is also committed to being a “responsible organiser” and will be sorting and recycling the several thousand tonnes of waste produced by the building of the show, applying an ethical approach to subcontractors by offering reasonable build-up timeframes in particular, providing a free transport system and suitable catering on site, and implementing regulations to ensure compliance with health and safety standards at work. We are helped by all our subcontractors and this approach should result in ISO 20121 certification.
The Paris Air Show brings together some 2,215 exhibitors, 351,000 trade and general public visitors, 290 international delegations and 3,200 journalists. It remains the largest aerospace industry event in the world and is the preferred show for exhibitors thanks to the quality of its participants as well as the organiser’s desire to meet the industry’s needs.
A great sounding board and showcase for the industry, the next show will again be an opportunity for numerous announcements and will focus on innovations.
