Most International Airshow Ever

Most International Farnborough Airshow Ever 

  • Fastest-selling show yet, reflecting major growth in demand to do business
  • China and Japan leading international interest
  • Highest ever number of international Pavilions   

With 100 days to go until this year’s Farnborough International Airshow, organisers confirm it has attracted the most global attendance ever. The biennial event, which runs from July 16 until July 22nd, is widely recognised for its role in connecting the worldwide aerospace market. It serves as a backdrop for the announcement of multi-billion dollar deals, and for the launch of major innovations.    

So far, 29 international Pavilions have confirmed, up six from 2016 and representing a 100 per cent retention rate. Countries including Mexico, Turkey and the US will be vying for business alongside a significant European presence from Germany, France and Spain. 

This year’s show - which falls 37 weeks before the UK leaves the EU - will see the largest presence yet from China, with 70 per cent growth in participation since the 2016 show. Meanwhile Japan has increased its presence with a second Pavilion, joining Malaysia, Korea and Indonesia, and underpinning the Airshow’s role as a key gateway into the lucrative Asian aerospace market.
