The organisers of AERO, Europe’s largest General Aviation show, staged at Friedrichshafen Airport in southern Germany, have announced that next year’s show will be later than usual. It will take place from 21-24 April 2021.
AERO head Roland Bosch said, “An event being postponed for internal reasons has opened up the possibility of pushing back the AERO 2021 in order to avoid overlapping with the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, Germany, and Sun ‘n Fun in the United States. This allows us to fulfill a request we’ve received repeatedly from exhibitors and visitors.”
Additionally, a new date has been set for the AERO South Africa, after the 2020 event was cancelled due to the coronavirus, just like AERO 2020. The new South Africa dates are 8-10 July 2021 when the aviation exhibition will take place at Wonderboom airport in Pretoria.
The AERO team also announced that in future, the International Aviation Exhibition will be regularly delivering conference content outside of the usual hours.
AERO project lead Tobias Bretzel is convinced that “this will allow us to stay in contact with our exhibitors, visitors and networks during these difficult times and keep the dialog going. We’re also interested in countering cheap offerings provided by dubious virtual platform operators.”
