As the aviation industry cautiously looks towards green shoots of recovery, the business aviation sector has been credited for its ability to quickly adapt and return to the skies as people look for bespoke travel options as a short-term reaction to COVID-19. With long term growth noted and continued efforts by the sector to adopt new cabin technologies, Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) has announced the launch of a dedicated Business Jet Interiors Zone, which will debut when the exhibition returns to Hamburg from 13-15 April 2021.
A one-stop area for everyone in the bizjet sector
Launching following extensive consultation with key suppliers and AIX attendees, the new Business Jet Interiors Zone will offer the sector’s buyers a more tailored experience, with the full spectrum of aircraft interiors represented at the show. The new zone will feature the latest seating, furnishings and IFEC solutions, as well as in-flight systems, avionics, galley equipment and other products and services required to make discerning business aviation cabins.
New opportunities for suppliers
Current AIX exhibitors already include key players in this sector including Lufthansa Technik and JCB/AMAC. Manufacturers exhibiting at AIX 2021 will have an opportunity to reach both the Business Jet and Commercial markets at the largest marketplace for cabin interior products that attracts 16,000 attendees, including 1,300 aircraft interiors buyers . The world’s most important aircraft interiors event will deliver exhibitors and visitors with opportunities to connect with new business contacts.
Driving networking opportunities
Exhibitors and attendees can take advantage of dedicated business networking opportunities, as well as the chance to discuss topical issues and innovations with the industry’s foremost experts in the AIX CabinSpace Live theatre. And, exhibitors have the opportunity to secure meetings ahead of time using the AIX Connect platform – a buyer programme designed to help qualified buyers from OEMs, airlines and tier 1 suppliers from around the world meet, build business relationships and engage in future projects.
Speaking about the announcement, Polly Magraw, Event Director, said:
“As we look forward to 2021, we’re delighted to announce the launch of the new dedicated Business Jet Interiors Zone at Aircraft Interiors Expo. The exhibition is recognised as the premier marketplace for the full aircraft interior supply chain to come together to network and do business. Today, the launch of the Business Jet Interiors Zone marks the expansion of this proposition, enabling interior suppliers to reach both the business and commercial markets. We hope this launch will help our existing and new exhibitors to diversify their offering and source new business opportunities to grow and expand while offering new commercial offshoots to overcome the challenges of COVID-19.”
