These flight displays are always spectacular and often astonishing, representing high points in the show and enabling exhibitors to demonstrate their technological expertise and visitors to discover the latest offerings in the field.
A program of Business Meetings is organized during the show.
The program, introducing purchasers and manufacturers exhibiting at the show, through meetings pre-arranged in advance according to the particular characteristics of each, was launched in 2007 and was immediately a great success.
The program is open to all purchasers (order-givers) looking for solutions in the aeronautical and space sectors and to solutions providers exhibiting at the show.
