ILA 2012 dates rescheduled for September
The next ILA will take place from 11 to 16 September 2012, three months later than originally planned.
This decision was taken at today’s session of the presidium of the German Aerospace Industries Association (BDLI). ILA 2012 had previously been scheduled to take place from 19 to 24 June.
The exhibitors in particular are of the opinion that rescheduling the fair for September will space out the intervals between air shows in the summer of 2012, which among others will include the Farnborough International Air Show and Eurosatory in Paris.
The announcement of new dates is particularly good news for companies from the defence industry, as well as for the many trade visitors and delegations representing this sector. It also means that the ILA will take place well after the scheduled opening of the new large airport, Berlin Brandenburg International, in June 2012. In 2012 ILA will take place on the new exhibition grounds at Berlin-Schönefeld for the first time.
