inter airport Europe 2013 will open its doors from October 8 – 11, 2013 at the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany. For this year’s show, exhibition organizers, Mack Brooks Exhibitions, announce a record number of exhibitors and a record floor space. More than 630 exhibitors from 37 countries will present their innovations at the 19th International Exhibition for Airport Equipment, Technology, Design & Services. The exhibition range covers all areas of airport planning, design and operation. Solutions for aircraft, passenger and cargo handling, security, airport IT, architectural components as well as Ground Support Equipment will be on display.
“A 10% increase in floor space and 4% more exhibitors compared with the previous exhibition reflect the general recovery of the airport industry. While passenger numbers in growth regions such as Asia have continuously increased over the past two years, passenger figures in Europe have remained static for quite a long time. Now the forecasts predict that the economic situation for the European airport industry will pick up again. Furthermore, the worldwide cargo market is currently also showing first signs of recovery“, says Nicola Hamann, Show Director inter airport Europe, on behalf of the organizers, Mack Brooks Exhibitions.
