No more Farnborough Airshow Public Days from 2019
Mar 5th, 2019 at 7:05pm
 
We’re taking the 2020 Farnborough International Airshow back to its roots as an industry trade event. The show will run from Mon 20 July to Fri 24 July, meaning the public weekend will not happen BUT there is new focus on engaging young people on Fri 24th

Farnborough International Airshow Places Renewed Focus on Engaging Young People with Industry

05 March 2019
   
The Farnborough International Airshow is to go back to its roots and allow public access to its exhibition halls to promote and inspire the next generation of pilots, engineers and innovators.

The move will see the seven day global aerospace, defence and space trade event, which has traditionally included a public weekend, become a five day trade event (Mon-Fri), removing the public weekend. Instead, Friday 24th July of the trade show will open its doors to the public and focus on inspiring the next generation and showcasing the technologies driving new products and manufacturing processes.

This enhances the Airshow’s valuable role as an inspirational event which encourages talented young people attracted to aerospace, defence and space to focus on developing skills needed to enter rewarding careers in these industries. Engaging the next generation with the right skills and qualifications is vital to securing the long-term success of organisations that make a valuable contribution to national prosperity. 

Gareth Rogers, CEO of Farnborough International says: “The Farnborough International Airshow is a unique event. Allowing the public to see more of the people, products and processes that underpin the global aerospace, defence and space industries will help engage and inspire a new generation.
“Removing the public weekend will disappoint some, but for our exhibitors and trade visitors the focus is on business and accessing the talent they need to sustain global competitiveness.”
The Farnborough International Airshow is one of the world’s most important aerospace trade events. In 2018, the biennial show hosted more than 1,500 exhibitors and welcomed 80,000 visitors representing 112 countries. There will be an air display on each day of the airshow, showcasing the latest commercial and military aircraft.

Opening on Monday 20 July 2020 and running until Friday 24 July, the Farnborough International Airshow is a strategic opportunity for organisations to demonstrate innovation; engage with customers; announce deals and new contracts; and take part in conference programmes featuring world-class speakers.
