Frankfurt/Munich – The AIRTEC 2015, 10th International Aerospace Supply Fair, will take place at its new exhibition ground, the Exhibition Center in Munich. The dates remain the same, from November 3 – 5, 2015.
Diana Schnabel, AIRTEC CEO/President, announced: “By taking this step we take account of different developments. We are happy to follow Bavaria”s call into a region which belongs to Germany”s and entire Europe”s strongest in the fields of aviation and aerospace. Furthermore, an event like AIRTEC, which experiences a yearly growth of about 30%, needs a certain dynamic concerning the right setting. We have finally found this in Munich.”
Ilse Aigner, Bavarian Minister of State for Economy and Media, Energy and Technology, welcomes this step: “I am looking forward to AIRTEC taking place in Bavaria. This certainly strengthens the position of our high-tech region Munich as one of the outstanding aerospace locations in Europe. Moreover, it perfectly fits the Bavarian strategy of enhancing international visibility and strengthening networks with international business partners.”
AIRTEC”s relocation was initiated by bavAIRia e.V., commissioned to managing the Cluster Aerospace by the Bavarian government. Horst Steinberg, member of bavAIRia Executive Board, explains: “We have accompanied AIRTEC for years and know that this is a tailor-made supply fair. It has the potential to become a central place for the aerospace supply industry in Europe. The congress will focus on the civil application of unmanned aerial vehicles as future technology.”
The Messe München International also sees itself confirmed in its strategy to host high-tech events: “The Munich Exhibition Center is looking forward to this high-level event. We will be a competent and highly modern new home for AIRTEC”, states Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Vice Chairman of the Executive Board of Messe München International.
The 10th International Aerospace Supply Fair will take place from November 3 – 5, 2015 at the Munich Exhibition Center. AIRTEC is based on the three founding pillars: trade exhibition, B2B-Meetings, and a high-calibre international aerospace congress, focusing on the topics AERONAUTICS, UAV, HELI and SPACE WORLD/COMMERCIAL SPACE, AEROSPACE SENSORS, AVIONICS and TESTING. 600 exhibitors from 30 nations, nearly 12.000 B2B-Meetings, 230 lectures, and about 900 congress participants are expected at AIRTEC 2015.
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.
