AIRTEC is the World Aerospace Supply Fair with combined pre-arranged B2B-meetings and a highly qualified and international congress. Since 2006 AIRTEC takes place annually and represents the entire aerospace supply chain from design, engineering, testing and simulation over materials, production, tools, components, systems, electronics, sensors, avionics up to life cycle support, all at one exhibition place. At the international exhibition the international audience receives a varied overview of the aerospace supply industry where innovations, new technologies and trends are represented. Due to the unique exhibition B2B Meeting concept , AIRTEC is more than a traditional trade fair. The core of AIRTEC are the B2B meetings that are pre-arranged via a sophisticated B2B matchmaking platform prior to the event. The meetings take place during the three days of AIRTEC and in this way enhances the intensive exchange with potential business partners from Germany and abroad. The program is accomplished by an international aerospace congress, where experts from industry and research discuss new developments and trends. This combination of an international exhibition, B2B-meetings and an international congress makes AIRTEC one of the world-wide leading meeting-places in the aerospace industry.
