Singapore, 14 February 2020 – The trade segment of the Singapore Airshow 2020 concluded on an optimistic note with more than two-thirds of its key exhibitors committing to participate in the eighth edition, from 15 – 20 February 2022, at the Changi Exhibition Centre. Returning exhibitors will include Airbus, Boeing, Changi Airport Group, Diehl Defence, Elbit, Embraer, Hensoldt, Israel Aerospace Industries, L3 Harris, Lufthansa Technik, Pratt & Whitney, Rafael and ST Engineering.
Kallman Worldwide, who organises US presence at the world’s most influential aerospace and defence events, is the first to commit to returning with the USA Partnership Pavilion in 2022. Said Kallman Worldwide President and CEO Tom Kallman: “The success of the US Pavilion’s 110 companies this year inspired Kallman Worldwide to be the first to sign up for 2022. The US participation was far-and-away the largest international group in the show and our government officials, military delegations, and industry partners all reported that their (G2G, G2B, and B2B) meetings were first class. As it does year-after-year, the Singapore Air Show delivered high-ranking decision makers and influencers from around the entire region. The USA Partnership Pavilion will build on the success of 2020 and return strong again in 2022!”
Other returning country pavilions for Singapore Airshow 2022 include Australia, Canada, Germany, Malaysia and Switzerland.
Mr Leck Chet Lam, Managing Director, Experia Events, organiser of the Singapore Airshow, said: “Singapore Airshow is a strategic node in the global aviation and defence ecosystem; one that is instrumental in the transformation of Asia’s aerospace and defence industries. Despite current global concerns surrounding COVID-19, the exhibitors’ commitment and presence at Singapore Airshow 2020 signify confidence in the longer-term outlook for Asia’s aviation industry, and the relevance of the Singapore Airshow as a value adding platform to foster this growth. We are encouraged by the show of solidarity from our exhibitors and look forward to deepening collaborations and partnerships built during the past four days, and returning stronger with new ideas and concepts to transform Asia’s aviation industry.”
