1,000+ exhibitors participate in the Singapore Airshow

News this week: This year’s Singapore Airshow concluded with more than 1,000 exhibitors from 47 countries and regions gathered at the Changi Exhibition Centre. The six-day aerospace and defence exhibition took place from 11th to 16th February 2014, with the first three days reserved exclusive for trade buyers.

Organised by Experia Events, the show reportedly attracted more than 40,000 trade visitors from 125 countries and regions – up from the 38,000 recorded in 2012. This year’s show featured 22 country and group pavilions, with an announced deal value of US$32 billion. The U.S. was the most represented country at the exhibition this year with the participation from 163 companies – of which 111 were in the U.S. pavilion.

Jimmy Lau, managing director of Experia Events, said, “We are delighted that the US$32 billion of deals announced at Singapore Airshow 2014 represents an increase in the value of deals from 2012. We have also recorded strong visitor figures from an even larger number of countries, underscoring Singapore Airshow’s standing as the preferred platform for high-level government delegations and industry leaders to come together, network, address challenges facing the aerospace industry and do business, all in one convenient location.”
