Farnborough International Airshow

The Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) was the most important trade event for the global aerospace industry in 2018. A total of 1,500 exhibitors from 52 countries were estimated to have attended. The event alternates with the Paris Air Show which is held in odd years. FIA took place from July 16 to 22, 2018, at the Farnborough Airport, about 60km Southwest of London, England. The event served as a key opportunity to promote Canadian aerospace capabilities to international original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their global supply chains. Canada’s presence at FIA included approximately 420 Canadians representing 130 Canadian companies. Representatives from federal departments and agencies, industry associations (national and provincial), and provincial governments were also in attendance in support of the Canadian aerospace sector. 

Working collaboratively with the Aerospace Industries Association of Canada and the Canadian High Commission in London, the Department of Innovation, Science, and Economic Development led the organization of the Canadian presence at the show. The Government of Canada led a series of initiatives, including a Minister and senior management meeting program; the organization of the Showcase portion of the Canadian Pavilion; the Canada Chalet; a welcome reception; a speaker series; a business-to-business matchmaking program; networking activities; and support for the Canada reception.
