A new general and business aviation exhibition is planned for November 2023 – Air Expo India. It will be hosted by Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL, a GMR Airports company) at Indira Gandhi International Airport in Dehli. The show was officially launched in New Delhi on 14 December 2022 when DIAL and Adone Events signed a protocol agreement to organise the show.
Air Expo India will take place over a three-day period. It will welcome exhibitors and delegates from Asia and the Middle East, representing local and international aerospace companies, owners, operators, suppliers and media. There will be a large static display of eVTOL and electric aircraft, in support of India’s intent to become a manufacturing centre for these aircraft.
Air Expo India is targeting a mix of general and business aviation exhibitors over a static area totalling 60,000m². The space will accommodate more than 100 aircraft ranging in size from single- and twin-engine models to turboprops and private jets. The show format will reflect the approach taken at Abu Dhabi Air Expo, France Air Expo and African Air Expo, also organised by Adone Events, which offers exhibits located next to the runway, enabling manufacturers to present their whole range of aircraft.
“I am honoured that DIAL has shown its confidence in Adone Events by agreeing to collaborate with us on this exciting new venture,” said Didier Mary, CEO of Adone Events. “Our experience, knowledge and network of aviation contacts are such that we can already confirm that more than 200 aviation companies have expressed strong interest in participating. The growth of aviation in India reflects the need for this type of international exhibition, and we are delighted to be involved.”
