The UK’s Farnborough International Airshow has been cancelled due to the the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Originally scheduled to take place July 20-24 2020, the airshow regularly attracts over 80,000 trade visitors from around the world.
“This decision was reached taking into consideration several major factors surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19, all of which we have concluded make it impossible for us to create and host the Airshow this July,” the organisers stated. “We understand this news will be an incredible disappointment to all across the international aerospace industry, not to mention our important exhibitors, suppliers and visitors.”
The show’s exhibition includes a diverse range of companies from core sectors across the aerospace industry including space, civil, military, manufacturing technology, rotary and MRO. Many from the Additive Manufacturing sector both exhibit and visit during the five day event.
“We at Farnborough International share your disappointment that we are unable to present the Airshow as planned, but rest assured, we are determined to continue to work together and will ensure the Farnborough International Airshow returns in 2022 better than ever.”
