2018: The Space for Innovation
This year there are some terrific events lined up throughout the week, the first and foremost of which is the Innovation Zone and the brand new ‘Aerospace 4.0’.
These exhibits are designed to show off the latest in pioneering technology in the aerospace industry, whilst simultaneously bringing together the world’s foremost innovators, researchers and engineers from companies and universities across the globe.
Location detection technology, autonomous robotics, cybersecurity, and the Internet of Things are just a few big names among the many exhibits that will appear at the inaugural Aerospace 4.0.
This year, there will also be a Live Demo Area for Spotlight Exhibitors, in which there will be a chance to see the new technologies in action. Within the exhibition halls, a special zone has been allocated for live demonstrations of innovative and revolutionary new products, described on the Airshow website as a ‘fully immersive experience’.
This will be a great opportunity to find out in detail about the latest groundbreaking research that will shape the future of the industry.
It’s not all about planes, either. The Space Zone has been a recent addition to the Airshow, but has proven a very popular one, with interactive exhibits emphasising space technology. In addition to the displays, there are also seminars from experts in the industry and shared experiences from live astronauts.
This is widely being recognised as one of the up-and-coming new forums for those in the industry and will be a fantastic networking opportunity, as well as probably an educational one.
Putting on A Show
Finally, of course, after the morning business talk, there will also be the traditional flying display which takes place each afternoon. This world-famous show puts the spotlight on the very latest design in both commercial and military aerospace engineering, in a spectacular fashion demonstrated by some of the world’s most capable pilots.
There is also a static display of each model featured in the show in the neighbouring aerodrome, so all the aircraft can be seen up close.
