Farnborough 2024

The election has dominated the newspapers over the last few weeks but Monday 22 sees the start of the Farnborough Airshow, a vital showcase for UK global aerospace and defence. Hopefully the newly elected Prime Minister will attend, likewise the appointments for Defence and Transport.

Following the resounding success of the 2022 event, which welcomed more than 74,000 professionals from 102 countries, including more than 250 official government and civil delegations, and racked up billions in global media reach, this year’s airshow will demonstrate the future of the industry and represent the apex of aviation.  Global leaders, including Airbus, Boeing, GE Aviation, GKN, Rolls-Royce and RTX, will be exhibiting their latest aircraft, innovations and technology at the event.

Gareth Rogers, CEO of Farnborough International, said: “The Farnborough International Airshow is more than a five-day, biennial event – it’s a change agent, powering excellence and innovation across the global aerospace and defence industries.

“The interest from global businesses to exhibit and attend the airshow has been phenomenal, and reflects the incredible demand there is from leaders to showcase their technology at our imitable platform and revolutionise the next era of the industry. I look forward to welcoming the world’s biggest, best and brightest to Farnborough in July this year”.

The 2024 event will see the return of the award-winning Aerospace Global Forum (AGF), the global platform that aims to champion change and drive immediate action, accelerating transition to the net-zero economy. Features of the five-day airshow include the Business Connections Exchange programme matching buyers and investors with vetted suppliers, and the networking Business Lounge sponsored by Lockheed Martin.

The August Travel News Update will include a review of the show.  See also No Boeing in this issue.
