world’s leading trade show for aircraft cabins and passenger experience
At the world’s leading trade show for aircraft cabins and passenger experience, the Aircraft Interiors Expo (yearly in April at Hamburg Messe, organised by Reed Exhibitions), global industry-leaders and regionally rooted suppliers alike will present new concepts and products — and it may not be long before passengers are encountering these concepts and products on board. The spectrum of products on show ranges from seating rails to fully equipped First Class cabins.
The Aircraft Interiors Expo is the main component in the “Passenger Experience Week”, starting with the Passenger Experience Conference on Monday, 9 April. The main expo is then flanked by the World Travel & Catering Expo (WTCE — leading trade show for in-flight catering) and, for the first time, Passenger Technology Solutions (trade show focusing on aviation-related IT services). All these events are taking place at the Hamburg Messe convention site
Showdown of the aviation industry: the Crystal Cabin Awards
Also traditionally presented as part of the Aircraft Interiors Expo are the Crystal Cabin Awards. This industry prize, initiated by Hamburg Aviation and closely followed by the industry and media around the world, is presented on the evening of first show day. In eight categories, the award honours the leading innovations of the year for aircraft operators and passengers.
Aircraft Interiors Expo a “home game” for Hamburg
The scale of the Hamburg Metropolitan Region’s presence at the “local” trade show is appropriate for the most important location worldwide in the field of aircraft cabins. This includes local anchor companies such as Airbus and Lufthansa Technik, 1st tier suppliers like Diehl Aviation and service providers like Altran and Vartan Aviation Group. Traditionally, Hamburg’s SMEs are represented on the over 2,000 qm strong Hanse-Pavillon in Hall B6, where the Hamburg Aviation stand can be found as well.
