Messe Augsburg wins another trade fair for Messeplatz. Airtec, International Innovation Fair for Aerospace, Future Air Mobility and New Space, will move to Augsburg from October 2023.
Airtec will be from 25.-27. October 2023 at the Augsburg Exhibition Center. Messe Augsburg scores above all with its maximum service orientation and its flexible, modern terrain: IGF GmbH, organizer of Airtec, sees Augsburg as ideal conditions as well as further growth potential for the trade fair that has been established on the market for years. Around 350 exhibitors from 30 nations are expected in Augsburg in 2023. Suppliers as well as original equipment manufacturers from all over the world will exhibit flying objects, components, demonstrators and simulators and demonstrate in outdoor areas.
“Welcome to the aerospace city of Augsburg to all exhibitors and visitors to AIRTEC from all over the world. With AIRTEC, another trade fair and congress event suitable for the region was won by Messe Augsburg as an international hub for new technologies and innovation in the field of aerospace. Aerospace is actually lived in Augsburg. It is researched, developed, produced and actually applied here. I wish the event a good course, efficient discussions and good results in an authentic setting,” explains Eva Weber, Lord Mayor of the City of Augsburg.
“With Airtec, another international event comes to Augsburg, which perfectly complements our portfolio. Messe Augsburg is once again sharpening its profile as the southern German location for technical and special topics,” says Lorenz A. Rau, Managing Director of Messe Augsburg.
The organizer of Airtec 2023, IGF GmbH with its trade fair manager Diana Schnabel, comments positively on the change of location: ” After years of the pandemic and its consequences, a year of departure will appear in 2023 and thus just the right time to move to a larger measuring area with the Airtec 2023. Airtec thus receives new and diverse opportunities and advantages for international growth at the new location. Together with the region, the city of Augsburg and Messe Augsburg, we are pleased to be able to offer a successful and very innovative international trade fair for aerospace, Future Air Mobility and New Space for exhibitors and trade visitors as a guest organizer.”
With the new international aerospace fair AIRTEC at Messe Augsburg, the entire region and also the Free State will benefit. In addition to sharpening the profile of the region and the Free State as an excellent aerospace location, the hotel industry, retail, service providers and crafts will receive orders. This further establishment of an international trade fair confirms the attractiveness of Augsburg as a trade fair location, says Dr. Wolfgang Hübschle, economic officer of the city of Augsburg.
Airtec is organized by IGF Innovative Global Fairs GmbH from Munich. Since its foundation, the event has developed and established itself into an important international industry meeting place with participants from over 30 countries. Airtec fits perfectly into the Augsburg economic region in the Free State of Bavaria, which is rich in aerospace companies. With the companies Airbus, Airbus Helicopters, AutoFlight Europe GmbH, Rocket Factory Augsburg, SGL Carbon and many other companies – also from the field of lightweight construction and the headquarters of Composites United Augsburg – Airtec has placed itself in an optimal location. Strong B2B matchmaking brings companies and potential customers together. Airtec is aimed at trade visitors from the aerospace, future air mobility and new space industries.
