date, 38% of its shell schemes stands, 35% of its self-build stand
space and a massive 56% of outdoor space have been booked for the
show which will take place between 14-25 July 2014.
months since the close of the
2012 event, the impressive sales are
due to many companies taking advantage of the organiser’s ‘Early
Bird’ deal offering exhibitors a saving of 4% on the advertised
rates. While the offer has provided a great incentive to book
early, with the closing date not until the end of June, the
volume of repeat customers is still regarded as exceptional.
biennially, the next Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) has
long been considered one of the world’s leading aerospace events
and core to many aerospace companies’ sales and marketing
The 2012 event saw over 1500 exhibitors attend from 39
countries, 153 aircraft taking parting in both static and flying
displays and orders and commitments to the tune of US$72 billion.
With over 100,000 visitors attending across the five trade days,
of which 53% don’t attend any other airshow, FIA has consistently
proved itself to be a must-attend core industry event.
FIL Commercial Director, Amanda Stainer said, “While orders and commitments may have totalled
US$72 billion at FIA2012, the true value far exceeds this as it

exhibitors further reflects the show’s value. The early booking

for companies who have not yet booked to take advantage of this
FIL Chief Executive, Shaun Ormrod,
added, “As we move forward into the planning phase for the 2014,
we will continue to invest in the show to create an event that our
exhibitors and visitors benefit – a larger Space zone, improved security and unmanned systems feature areas, and a focus on new
business sectors not featured at FIA before. We are looking
forward to developing our ideas over the coming months.”
