About the event

Covid-19 Update

AERO 2023 will be held from April 19th to April 22nd, 2023. Messe Friedrichshafen GmbH has stated that the upcoming live edition will continue the industry-wide dialogue initiated by the 2022 edition. At present, Messe Friedrichshafen does not have protective COVID-19 measures in place due to the removal of such regulations in Germany as of 02.04.2022. However, attendees will be highly encouraged to follow certain recommendations, such as maintaining a social distance of 1.5 metres. Due to the ongoing travel restrictions, they must also present upon arrival in the country 3G entry documents such as proof of recovery.

Calling Card 

AERO ranks in the top tier of trade fairs for general aviation. It has established itself as the go-to procurement platform and source for innovations in just under thirty years. You get not just full access to the entire value chain, but also an exciting air show, conferences and pilot training. There is no better venue to represent your brand and introduce you to the best of the best in your sector. AERO is an annual event based out of Friedrichshafen, Germany. Editions are typically held in late April and last for a total of four days at Messe Friedrichshafen. If you are eager to sync up with all the trends, best practices and current standards in general aviation on the territory of Europe, AERO is where you need to be.  

Business Potential 

What do we mean when we say general aviation? Basically, everything that flies. The exhibition grounds cover the full spectrum of aircraft – helicopters, drones, engines, business jets, motor gliders, avionics, and cabin equipment. The last edition boasted brands like INCOFF AEROSPACE s.r.o., Flightline Warriors, FLUG REVUE, Kishugu Aviation, MGM COMPRO s.r.o. and Scilla Systems Ltd. In addition to German companies, exhibitors came from Belgium, France, Austria, UK, Switzerland, Italy and the Czech Republic. As to the audience, there is quite a big difference in who attends AERO. On one hand, you have airlines and other related companies in attendance. There is quite a lot of pilots and pilots-to-be who are interested in honing their skills and getting some additional training. Even the police have shown interest in no small part due to the drone sector. 

Did You Know? 

One thing you would probably be very surprised to find out about AERO is its connection to the art world. For several years now, local artists have formed the AEROkunst exhibition, which features works across many mediums – photography, painting, furniture, graphic painting and sculpture. AERO is quite committed to the future of aviation. One of its most popular programming items is the e-flight expo, which hosts some of the world’s brightest minds that tackle innovations and breakthroughs in the world of electric flight. The flight simulation area is always a big hit with visitors and so are the many AERO conferences.
