When Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) returns in 2021, it will feature a dedicated Business Jet Interiors Zone. The event is due to be held in Hamburg, Germany, on 13-15 April 2021. The organisers noted the move follows extensive consultation with key suppliers and attendees.
The new zone is intended to feature the full gamut of products and services required for business aviation cabins – from seating to furnishings, IFEC solutions, inflight systems, avionics, galley equipment and more.
Current AIX exhibitors already include key players in this sector, including Lufthansa Technik and JCB/AMAC Aerospace. Manufacturers exhibiting at AIX 2021 will have an opportunity to reach both the business jet and commercial markets. The event is expected to attract around 16,000 attendees, including 1,300 aircraft interiors buyers.
Exhibitors and attendees can take advantage of dedicated business networking opportunities, as well as the chance to discuss topical issues and innovations with industry experts in the AIX CabinSpace Live theatre. Exhibitors also 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 to meet, build business relationships and engage in future projects.
“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,” said Polly Magraw, event director. “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.”
