Farnborough airshow is back!

Taking place from 18-22 July 2022, the Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) will resume its position as the premier aerospace and aviation event.

For decades, the show has been the most important global platform for the aerospace, aviation, and defence industry. Following the challenges of the last two years within the industry, the role of the event now carries even greater significance, promising unrivalled networking and insight-generating opportunities to support the reconnection of leaders from around the world and enable business growth and recovery.

Building upon the success of the 2018 event, which saw deals worth $192 billion made, the 2022 edition will be unveiling a new global initiative – the inaugural Aerospace Global Forum – which will provide global leaders with the opportunity to gather, discuss and interrogate major issues impacting the world through an aerospace lens and drive positive change. 

The show will also see the expansion of smart networking opportunities, the evolution of turnkey chalets and a new Space Zone, utilising the two brand-new 22,000ft² sound stages built on the grounds of the Farnborough International Exhibition & Conference Centre.

Steering the conversation on six core themes pertinent to the aerospace, aviation and defence industries, FIA will focus on the future of the industry, sustainability, aerospace and defence thought leadership, space, future workforce and air travel. Industry pioneers such as BAE Systems, Boeing, Rolls-Royce and Raytheon Technologies have already announced their attendance.   

Gareth Rogers, CEO of Farnborough International, said: “Farnborough International Airshow remains the leader in connecting the world of aerospace and the 2022 instalment will be our most important yet. With almost 90% of exhibition spaces sold and reserved already and more than two-thirds of exhibitors from outside the UK, we are thrilled to see the eagerness of the industry to return to face-to-face events and work together to initiate global change.”

Kevin Craven, CEO of ADS Group, added: “The UK is at the epicentre of the global aerospace industry. Attracting leaders from across the world, Farnborough International offers a vital opportunity to evolve, collaborate and connect at the highest level to propel the UK the aerospace, aviation and defence industries into the stratosphere.

Robert Courts MP, UK Aviation Minister, said: “We know how challenging the last 18 months have been for the aviation sector and the return of this world-renowned airshow marks a significant moment for the industry.

“As well as being a huge boost for the economy, the show highlights the leading role the UK plays in ushering in a new era of Jet Zero aviation, developing innovative new technologies and creating green jobs.”
