B2B-Meetings, Technology and Solutions in the focus. Strong international participation.

At AIRTEC 2017, which took place from October 24th until 26th, 2017 at the Munich Airport Business Park, Hallbergmoos, Germany, only 7 km from the Airport Munich, the international participation has been extraordinarily high. 70 % of the participants of this year's international aerospace supply fair came from abroad. Under the lead theme "Sky High Innovations" also this year, technology, trends and solutions were in the focus. The B2B meetings were again this year the core of the event. 160 exhibitors from 19 nations, buyers and technology experts from leading OEMs, engine manufacturers, system suppliers and airlines came from the entire world, amongst them Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Comac, Embraer, Pratt & Whitney, Rolls Royce, Aernnova, Aero Vodochody, Autoflug, Condor, Diehl, GE Aviation, GKN, Hitco, Kawasaki, Lufthansa Technik, Mitsubishi, Northrop Grumman, Ogma, Parker Aerospace, Sabca, TAI, took part in the B2B-meetings, in order to make contacts with exhibitors and to inform themselves about latest technology trends. 320 companies registered in the B2B-meetings.

The exhibitors presented major innovative trends from the entire aerospace supply chain: engineering, materials - composites and metals - production, systems, mechanical and electronical system components. Many companies presented themselves on joint booths, amongst them from important countries and regions like Great Britain, Northern Ireland, Italy, Andalusia, the Basque region of Spain, Brescia (Northern Italy), the State of Ohio. Impressive was the presence of Pakistan at AIRTEC 2017. During the three exhibition days the first day and the second day were very well attended. 3,680 visitors were registered for AIRTEC 2017; in total 30 countries were represented.

AIRTEC 2017 was inaugurated by the Head of Unit Aviation at the European Commission, Dr. Sebastiano Fumero and by Richard Aboulafia at American Teal Group, one of the most recognized analysts in the aerospace industry. Main topics of the international conference were new materials, additive manufacturing, industry 4.0. Chairmen were Dr. Leslie Cohen, SVP at Hitco Carbon Composites, USA and Professor Klaus Drechsler from the TU Munich. Under the speakers were experts, amongst them Airbus, Boeing, Bosch Rexrodt, Northrop Grumman, Safran Launchers, Siemens. The special additive manufacturing summit was chaired by Dr. Jens Telgkamp, Head of Additive Layer Manufacturing Research & Technology (ESCRNA team) at AIRBUS, and found great appeal. Also the supply chain management and procurement summit with speakers from procurement and management from JobsOhio, Kawasaki, Rolls-Royce and Parker Aerospace was very well attended.

Many exhibitors made excellent contacts, which have led already into good business relationships.
