International Aerospace Exhibition

Located in one of Europe’s most popular trade fair cities at the heart of the European Union, ILA Berlin Air Show offers unrivaled coverage of all aspects of the international aerospace industry. 

The event takes place at the Berlin ExpoCenter Airport. With 1,153 exhibitors from 47 countries, about 235,000 visitors and business agreements worth a total of at least 16.5 billion dollars, ILA is one of the world’s largest aerospace trade shows and earns a perfect score in terms of exhibitor and trade visitor satisfaction. 

Established in 1909, the ILA is regarded as the world’s oldest aviation trade show. Organised by BDLI, with Messe Berlin as the executive company, the ILA has been taking place every two years at its present site in Berlin/Brandenburg since 1992, covering all aspects of aviation and space flight in the form of an international trade show with conferences and plenty to interest the general public too. The ILA is also the only European aerospace show that is equally accessible from Western, Central and Eastern Europe.

ILA is the only aerospace trade event to combine the depth of a segmented trade fair with the unique synergies of a leading aerospace trade show. More than 100 top-level conferences are designed to address current topics of importance to the aerospace community. With accompanying conferences the ILA 2012 is augmenting its already dominant position as the leading international trade show and conference event for the aerospace sector.

The presence of high-ranking delegations from all over the world ensure that ILA Berlin Air Show is an effective international meeting place for business and science, politics, international space agencies and the military. With just under 300 aircraft, considerably more than at any other of the world’s air shows, on display on the ground and in the air and its unique Space Pavilion, ILA Berlin Air Show is also providing interesting and fascinating attractions for the general public. 

About 4,100 media representatives from 70 countries report in word, images and sound on the events taking place at the Berlin Air Show, and their coverage provide worldwide publicity. State-of-the-art exhibition infrastructure and close proximity to Berlin’s new international airport are making the world’s oldest aviation trade show a perfect platform for exhibitors, trade visitors, politicians and the general public alike. 

The Republic of Poland is the official partner country of the International Air Show ILA 2012. The event is held under the auspices of the Polish Ministry of Economics and the Polish Agency for Information and Foreign Investment (PAIIZ), 

The Berlin Air Show presents a wide-ranging review of advanced aviation and space technology on the ground and in the air. Increasing specialization in the aerospace field has led to a growing emphasis on a number of specific areas of business, a development to which the ILA has responded by creating various segments designed to reflect the present market situation. These include Commercial Aviation, Space Flight, Defense and Security, Equipment, Aero Engines and Materials, as well as General Aviation. The ILA’s main display sections include commercial aviation, aerospace, military aviation and military technology, equipment and engines, and general aviation and helicopters.

During the first four days admission is restricted to trade visitors only, while the last two days are open to the general public.
