Industry Relevance

AERO is a place where professionals can mingle with aviation enthusiasts. The very first AERO was held in Messe Friedrichshafen in 1978 and editions are spaced out on an annual basis. What’s most impressive about the exhibition is the sheer wealth of products and services exhibited. Trade visitors can purchase helicopters, drones, engines, business jets, motor gliders, avionics, air and exercise equipment, cabin equipment, airport equipment, kits, light aircraft, pilot equipment and even used aircraft. There’s something for everyone and you sell to all levels. One of the big selling points of AERO is that it’s a massive springboard for innovation. Organisers give additional value through the inclusion of over 100 talks and workshops!

Who Are You Going to Meet?

AERO reports good, consistent growth rate. Last edition earned out over 32,000 visitors compared to the 31,000 visitors from edition in 2018, so there’s a sense of expansion and opportunity in the air. You also tap into more markets since over 60% of all visitors have are foreign nationals with the majority coming from Europe, followed by Asia, and Australia and New Zealand. The divide for exhibitors is split down in the middle with only every second exhibitor coming from outside Germany. The multi-faceted program with a Flight Simulator Area and a drone demo area attracts people as diverse as fledgling pilots to law enforcement.
