Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) will this year be held at the Hamburg Messe in Germany on 6-8 June 2023. The event organiser shared that AIX is on track to exceed expectations, with leading airlines, lessors and business jet operators expected to attend, ready to source next-generation products and solutions to transform the passenger experience.
With a full spectrum of interior products and services on display, AIX will provide a platform for product specifiers to see and test more than 1,000 products from global airline suppliers based in 30-plus countries. Among those returning to the event, major OEMs Boeing and Airbus will be joined by some of the leading players operating in the interiors sector, from seating specialists Safran, Recaro Aircraft Seating, Jamco Corporation and HAECO Cabin Solutions; and IFEC providers Panasonic Avionics, Thales Group, Astronics Corporation, Latitude Aero and Bluebox Aviation Systems.
The event organiser shared that attendees will find solutions for every aspect of the cabin interiors environment, including CMS, flooring solutions, galley equipment, IFEC, interior paints and coverings, lighting, lavatory and waste equipment, seating and more.
Helping attendees make the most of their time at the show, dedicated zones will bring together suppliers and specialists in key product areas. The event’s ever-growing Inflight Entertainment and Connectivity (IFEC) Zone will again provide a dedicated space for attendees to test the latest IFEC products from more than 50 exhibiting companies.
The show planning tool, AIX Connect, returns. With more than 5,000 confirmed meetings scheduled across the three days of last year’s show, AIX Connect will once again help facilitate networking and business.
Meanwhile, the event’s CabinSpace Live Seminar theatre will help connect audience members with cabin interior industry leaders, as they share experiences and insights into current and emerging challenges. A full programme of sessions and speakers will be announced in the coming months. It will also play host to the winners of this year’s Crystal Cabin Awards – the international award for excellence in aircraft interior innovation.
Attendees are also encouraged to immerse themselves in the latest insights at the Passenger Experience Conference, which takes place on the day before AIX, 5 June 2023. The event will once again bring together experts representing airlines, airframers, OEMs, suppliers and design agencies to discuss the future of passenger experience, onboard environments and services. For attendees looking to maximise the networking opportunities afforded by the event, there is a Welcome Party on 5 June, after the conference closes.
“It is great to see the recovery of the industry maintaining pace,” said Polly Magraw, event director, AIX. “While there is still a long way to go back to pre-pandemic levels, the industry is taking the right steps, and we’re delighted to see airlines embracing the opportunity to transform their business operations to meet the evolving expectations of passengers. After the return of AIX in 2022, we’re excited to get back to business, creating even more opportunities for attendees to connect, learn and source the latest innovations. After what was one of our most successful years for new exhibitor launches, we can’t wait to see what the industry has in store for 2023.”
AIX (6-8 June) will follow the Passenger Experience Conference on 5 June, and be co-located with the World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo (WTCE). Visitor registration will open in March 2023. To register your interest to attend, visit the website here.
