FIA Maintain Leading Position as Record Number of Exhibitors Sign Multi-show Commitments

At the Paris Airshow today, organisers of the Farnborough International Airshow revealed that an unprecedented number of clients have signed multi-show partnership agreements for the biennial aerospace trade event. Ten companies including Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Martin Baker have now confirmed their presence at Farnborough for 2018 and beyond.

The list also includes a new agreement for Bombardier, who have moved to a prominent location and increased their exhibition space for FIA18. New deals have also been struck with long-term partners of the Airshow and global industry names including QinetiQ and MBDA.

Speaking about the show, Farnborough International Commercial Director, Amanda Stainer said, “We are delighted to see this increased level of commitment from our exhibitors. This continued investment in FIA via multi-show partnerships is a key signifier of the health and strength of the show.”

One of the ten deals is with Boeing, who has committed to the 2018, 2020 and 2022 shows. Charlie Miller, Boeing’s Vice President of International Corporate Communications said: “We are pleased to be able to further cement our relationship with Farnborough International with an agreement that confirms our participation at the next three Airshows. We enjoy a strong relationship with the Farnborough International team, and the Airshow provides a terrific venue for us to connect with so many of our UK, European and International customers.  Boeing has had a strong partnership with the UK for the past 80 years and at the last Farnborough International Airshow in July 2016 we agreed with the UK government to deepen this relationship still further.”
