Attendees of the trade fair range from global industry players to SMEs. More than 1500 exhibitors from 52 countries worldwide showcase innovations and technology across the aviation industry including, for example, aircraft and manufacturing, aircraft systems, avionics, cargo, engine and control systems, IT, secure communications, space, supply chain management and unmanned aerial service.
FIA 2018 features Aerospace 4.0, highlighting emerging technologies in the aerospace industry. The Cargo Village, first implemented in 2016, provides a static display dedicated entirely to air cargo. Different meeting places, such as The Innovation Zone, provide room for new ideas. The most famous feature probably is the flying display opening daily in the afternoon.
