EXHIBIT AT AVALON 2019
THE PREMIER AVIATION, AEROSPACE AND DEFENSE SHOWCASE
FOR THE AUSTRALIA AND ASIA-PACIFIC REGION
AVALON AIRPORT
GEELONG, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA
February 26 – March 3, 2019


AVALON 2019 is Australia’s largest and most comprehensive aviation, aerospace and defense exposition featuring products and services across the full range of military and civilian sectors. U.S. exhibitor numbers are growing fast and are forecast to exceed 100 for the first time, featuring record numbers of companies and U.S. state-themed booths. Avalon also has a well-deserved reputation as being SME-friendly and an event where companies of all sizes can find opportunities for new business.

WHY AVALON?


Avalon is organized around three core market sectors:

Commercial Aviation

Most of the world’s long-haul carriers serve destinations throughout Asia and the Indo-Pacific from Australian airports. Operations and MRO services are top-of-mind in this market.

General Aviation

The private jet market in Australia has more than doubled in the past decade. The geography of the Indo-Asia-Pacific region and the sheer size of Australia lends itself to business jets, turbo propeller and propeller aircraft for transportation needs. This, coupled with Parts, MRO and FBO business provides many opportunities for the General Aviation sector.

Military Defense Equipment

The modernization of Australia’s defense forces is taking off. According to the Australian Defense White Paper these are the early days of a massive investment in new programs, upgrades and overhauling of aircraft and defense systems for the Royal Air Force and other branches of the Australian military. Many countries in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region are taking advantage of what will be on display at Avalon and are sending their representatives to the show to make contact with suppliers to do business with their respective militaries.
