This year's Farnborough International Airshow
has not yet even started, but organisers are already reassuring
delegates that they have already secured hotel accommodation for
the 2012 show in anticipation of the increased demand due to the
London 2012 Olympics.
In conjunction with Zibrant, the official
accommodation provider for the airshow, organisers Farnborough
International Ltd (FIL) has worked closely
with VisitLondon to ensure there is enough bed space in London to
accommodate all visitors to the show.
This agreement comes
after the agreed rescheduling of the 2012 show to 9th – 15th July
in order to avoid clashing with the organisational build up of the
Olympics. By moving the airshow forward a week, the organisers
have been able to ensure it has all the resources it requires to
run the event on a ‘business-as-usual’ basis.
about the agreement with VisitLondon, Amanda Stainer, FIL’s
Exhibitions and Events Director said, “We’re putting everything in
place to ensure that the Farnborough International Airshow in 2012
will be as spectacular as any other and that includes ensuring all
our visitors will be able to attend. Despite the extra challenge
of it being an Olympic year, our tireless foresight and planning
will ensure the success of the 2012 show.”
Director of Business, VisitLondon further added, “The Farnborough
International Airshow is a major event, not just on the aviation
calendar, but also for the travel and tourism industry. Despite
the Olympics, we are very much aware that we need to house our
regular biennial visitors and are happy to secure space in London
Hotels for them.”
Farnborough 2010 will take place in just a few
days, 19 - 25 July 2010.
