  • Industry Relevance 

Paris Air Show is an institution in the aviation and aerospace sectors. Next to being the biggest of its kind, it’s also one of the oldest, having already been in operation for over a century. The first ever edition was held in 1909 right at the birth of aviation as a technology. Editions take place over a course of two years and are the chief meeting point not just for the industry's key players, but also prominent figures from the political world. The Paris Air Show opens all doors to the rest of the world’s markets. Because of that, the trade show receives backing and support from the French State, which helps organise and receive several delegations – Defence, General Directorate for Armament, Directorate General for Civil Aviation. 

The product portfolio is comprehensive with static displays reserved for aircraft engines, aerospace power plants, related equipment, cabin interior, pilot aids, subcontracting, aircraft construction, helicopters, defense technology, satellite communication systems, space research, space vehicles and more. All this is housed at the Paris–Le Bourget Airport. You don’t get a better stage than this and for many manufacturers, the Paris Air Show serves as the best launch pad for their newest offerings. Product and technology launches remain integral to the trade show. 

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

The Paris Air Shows lives up to its reputation as the meeting point for all the world with over 300 official delegations and trade visitors from 185 countries. European countries take the lead when it comes to presence followed by North America, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, Africa and Oceania in last place. The calibre of trade visitors remains unrivalled because over half of all trade visitors have jobs at companies with over 500 employees. 

Looking at industry background, most visitors come from the services sector, aircraft construction, assembly and sub-assemblies, airborne equipment and systems, subcontracting, maintenance, composite materials and surface treatment, aircraft engines and cabin interior. The aircraft display attracts a lot of attention as potential buyers can look at the latest and best from companies such as Daher, Dassault, Textron, DGAC, Russian Helicopters and Turkish Aerospace. 

The last three days of the Paris Air Show are designated for the general public, which makes up to 55% of all visitors. Aside from the purely B2B aspects of the air show, there’s a lot for families with children to enjoy. Of course, you can walk among the exhibited aircraft, interact with some of the exhibits and VR booths, talk with members of the industry and be awed by the shows put on every single afternoon. Sales from tickets to the general public manages to fund the Paris Air Show and allow it to be as incredible as it currently is. 

Additional Value of Attending 

Innovations sit front and centre at the Paris Air Show. Clear proof of that has to be the success of the Paris Air Lab that not only raises awareness of startups hoping for takeoff with the investor of their dreams, but an exciting programme. Startups can arrange for business meetings and have 12 booths grouped in 4 key exhibition areas. These are ENABLE (innovative technologies), TRAVEL (future of aeronautics mobility), PROTECT (sustainable aerospace industry) and EXPLORE (the innovations for iconic space missions). What’s more the Air Lab immerses you in virtual reality, has exciting animations and offers a support programme consisting of debates and keynotes on a variety of subjects such as climate change, artificial intelligence and the future of mobility. 

Another major component of the show is the special area devoted to career search and development in the aviation and aerospace industry. The Careers Plane targets the next generation of talent from current students and recent graduates to people with a career going. Companies can freely recruit and offer internships and training opportunities. It’s the best place to get a sense of the industry as a whole and invest in your career in a major way. There’s a meeting area as well as a discussion and demonstration area, where students can speak to professionals and learn about their job and future prospects.
