African Air Expo, a new African aviation exhibition, has been launched at this year´s France Air Expo Paris Le Bourget, organized by Adone Events, the company said.
The event will take place at King Shaka International Airport in Durban, South Africa, in collaboration with the government of KwaZulu-Natal.
African Air Expo is aiming to attract a mix of General, Business and Commercial Aviation exhibitors who will come together on a static area of 50,000 sq.m. The designated space will accommodate over 100 aircraft ranging in size from single and twin-engine models, turboprops, and executive jets through to commercial wide-body aircraft. The show format will reflect the approach taken at Abu Dhabi Air Expo and France Air Expo, also organized by Adone Events, which offers chalets and tents located next to the runway enabling manufacturers to present their entire range of aircraft and to facilitate and arrange demonstration flights.
African Air Expo will have strategic exhibition dimensions that are segmented for each aviation business need. This will include an outdoor static display showcasing the latest aircraft the industry has to offer, dedicated exhibition areas focused on all segments of the industry and an international Aviation Conference. All of which will occupy approximately 50,000 square meters of space at King Shaka International Airport. Leading aviation companies will be targeted for the African Air Expo, alongside key local and regional industry partners and stakeholders such as the South African Civil Aviation Authority, South African Airports Company, South African Airways, and other prestigious aviation brands based in South Africa, one of the most dynamic aviation industries in Africa. The support and partnership with the government will allow for a world-class event for both exhibitors and attendees of the aviation industry.
The event will be staged in collaboration with the government of KwaZulu-Natal, one of the nine provinces in South Africa. Durban, with its pristine beaches and idyllic tourist destinations along with world-class hotels and shopping malls, is a leading South African Tourist destination forming part of the eThekwini Municipality where some of the world´s premier exhibitions and conferences are hosted.
