A new highlight of the Singapore Airshow next
year will be the Feature Country, and the United States has been
designated as the first Feature Country at the show, scheduled
to take place from 11-16 February 2014 at the Changi Exhibition
In line with the theme Iconically American,
Singapore Airshow 2014 will see the largest U.S. presence yet with
more than 150 U.S. companies, including 70 of them in the U.S.
pavilion, along with a larger contingent of U.S. government and
private sector visitors and VIP guests.
The U.S. pavilion is also
the largest country pavilion at Singapore Airshow 2014, forming about a third of the total number of exhibitors.
The U.S., a world leader in aviation and
defense, is home to renowned companies including Boeing, Raytheon,
Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Honeywell, Rockwell Collins and
United Technologies Corporation, who are among the top 50
aerospace and defense companies globally. According to a report by
Cap Gemini, the United States is, by far, the worlds largest
aerospace and defense market, with revenues close to US$543
billion. Meanwhile, Asia is considered to be the fastest-growing
market for aerospace and defense products.
U.S. Ambassador to Singapore Kirk
Wagar said, The United States is very proud to be the Feature
Country at the 2014 Singapore Airshow. We have a rich history in
both commercial and military aviation and look forward to
demonstrating the best in American aviation.
Colonel Stephen Miller, Chief, Office of Defense Cooperation
Singapore, added, We are very excited to showcase the United
States Department of Defense aviation capabilities, advanced U.S.
technology, professional military personnel from all U.S.
services, and products from our U.S. industry partners.
In support of U.S. participation at Singapore Airshow,
U.S. exhibitors will stand to receive privileges such as exclusive invitations by key aerospace companies to speak at the business
forums, a special tour of the pavilion by the VIP delegations, a
prime strategic location within the exhibition hall and a joint
ribbon cutting ceremony at the U.S. Pavilion amongst many others.
Jimmy Lau, Managing Director of Experia Events,
said, We are delighted that the United States will be the first
ever feature country at Singapore Airshow. The United States
choice of Singapore Airshow and their increased presence at the 2014 edition demonstrate the value that Singapore Airshow brings
to its exhibitors and delegates. We hope that more countries will
come forward to use the Feature Country platform to pursue
strategic collaborations and joint ventures within the
international aerospace and defense arena.
