The Cutting Edge Singapore Air Show
The Singapore Air Show, which takes place every two years, is scheduled for 19-24 February 2008 at the New Changi Exhibition Centre, Changi North, Singapore. This prestigious event is Asia’s largest aerospace and defense show and one of the world’s top three air shows. Hosted jointly by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore and the Defense Science & Technology Agency, the Singapore Air Show serves as a meeting place for the military and civil aviation community to benefit from opportunities for marketing and networking on a global scale. It is also an opportunity for the public to view the airplanes and exhibitions.
Exhibitions at the Singapore Air Show include aircraft manufacturers, parts manufacturers, avionics, unmanned technologies, maintenance and repair services, airport services, research and development, defense systems, armaments, training, security, surveillance, cargo, communication systems, control systems, inflight services, computer software development and agencies for trade and export. Exhibitors at past events have praised the organizers for their efforts in ensuring that the Singapore Air Show is successful and to the benefit of all concerned.
The organizers of the Singapore Air Show are well aware that the success of the event depends on the location as well as the experience of the people running it. Having successfully hosted the Singapore Air Show for 26 years, the organizers are confident that the 2008 event will measure up to the high standard expected of it. The new venue – New Changi Exhibition Centre – is conveniently located, with parking for 2,000 vehicles and access roads to the centre allowing for the easy flow of traffic. The air-conditioned main exhibition hall is 40,000 square meters, with an outdoor exhibition area of 100,000 square meters. There is a lovely park area facing the sea which visitors can use for picnics and to watch the aerobatic displays.
Although the Singapore Air Show focuses on the business side of aviation, the open days for the public on 23 and 24 February 2008 will feature a number of exciting highlights, including two aerobatic displays and a mobility park for demonstrations of unmanned vehicle systems.
Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Singapore Air Show in February 2008 to catch up on what is happening in the fast moving world of aviation.
