Eclipse Aerospace Events
2010 Ysterplaat Airshow
09.21.10 - 09.25.10
Cape Town, South Africa
Africa's largest aerospace, defence, and security exhibition is moving to what many have called the world's most beautiful city. Africa Aerospace & Defence, AAD 2010, will be held in Cape Town from 21 - 25 September 2010.
The 2010 Ysterplaat Airshow programme is difficult to structure precisely due to the nature of an air show, but you can expect to be wowed all day long by spectacular airborne trickery from some of the world's greatest airplanes.
According to exhibition director, Mr Geoff van Hees, three new national pavilions have increased AAD2010 by more than 1,200 square metres in display area.
"Some 80 per cent of the exhibition space has already been booked, which is remarkable considering the worldwide economic situation that has impacted on the global aerospace and defence industry," Van Hees says.
"The fact that Turkey, China and the United States of America have all booked large national pavilions at AAD2010 underlines their confidence in South Africa and in the potential for business here. It is the first time these three countries are exhibiting at AAD2010 as national pavilions."
35 countries, 350 exhibitors!
The organizers of AAD2010 hope to surpass the previous numbers of some 350 exhibiting companies from 35 countries. Some 80 foreign delegations from around the world have been invited, many from Africa, as well as the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.
