Gearing Up For The Farnborough Air Show? Here’s What Lies In Store!

In picture: Projects implemented by Team XS at FIA 2016 The Farnborough Air Show has always facilitated business amongst the aerospace community. FIA 2018 is no different. In fact, it holds more relevance than ever for the industry and the aerospace supply chain.

Speed Lovers Are In For A Treat At Farnborough Air Show. Here’s Why

The Red Bull Air Race will be making its only UK appearance of the year at Farnborough International Airshow . The trade show will be open to the public on 21st and 22nd July and is being awaited by those looking forward to the race.

Getting A Small Exhibition Booth Design Right: The Do’s & The Don’ts

Booth design do & dont

The space at the trade show floor is always at a premium. So, you may end up with a smaller exhibition booth at times. If you do, make the most of the space at your disposal. Your trade show booth design could still stand out from the crowd.

Making It Big With Smaller Exhibition Stands

Do Think Of A Theme

A theme can develop an instant connection between the booth and your brand. Once you come up with a relevant theme, you won’t have to repeat your brand story. You won’t need to dedicate a large amount of space to making the visitors understand what you do. So, there’ll be more space available for you to focus on other things, say your products. The theme should be in tandem with the current developments in your company. For instance, if you are moving towards greener production, let the theme reflect that. Has there been a shift in your philosophy of late? Let the theme of your exhibition booth show it to the world.

Don’t Be A Stickler For Convention

Do not lay out everything on tables and podiums. Add elements that you could move up the walls. Think of things that you could drop down from the ceiling. The idea is to free up the floor space. Also, elements hung from the ceiling make for a striking visual. Whatever you do, leave enough room for the visitors to walk. Impossible shapes and a creative trade show booth design could do you some good.

Do Switch To A Virtual Space

Space or the lack thereof shouldn’t interfere with your goals of being at the exhibition. Start by offloading informative material to servers. Let the visitors browse at their leisure, or download or bookmark for later. Set up a couple of iPad Kiosks. The visitors can browse through your entire library of resources, using these kiosks. They can also email whatever interests them, to themselves. In the process, you will get their name and email IDs. You could also invest in a mobile app. Offer it as an “exclusive” giveaway, before it hits the app store. The end result – no physical space occupied.

Do Not Mistake Crowd For Leads

Even if the visitors occupy your trade show booth to the hilt, doesn’t mean they will all turn into leads. If anything, they will be taking up the space that could otherwise be free. Use a lead retrieval device. Let your staffers scan the visitors’ badges, before they begin with the elevator pitch. Of course they should do it in a rather casual way, so that the visitors are not intimidated.

Do Keep The Clutter At Bay

A smaller booth is no excuse. Don’t give away those “cluttered” and “lived-in” vibes. Make your exhibition booth as inviting as possible. Harness whatever little space is available to you for storage. Your box of office supplies should be stored away in nooks, corners and crannies. The same goes for spare giveaways. Anything that the visitors don’t need to see should be out of sight. Clutter will only add to the chaos.

Optimize your floor space. Confer with your exhibition booth design company how you can free up more space. You should be able to do it without giving up on the product display. XS Worldwide can suggest some creative trade show booth ideas for smaller spaces. Put them to good use or better still, ask us how!

Iron Man Took Everyone By Surprise

The public visitors at Farnborough Airshow 2018 had the time of their lives. Thanks to Richard Browning, the real-life Iron Man, they got to see a human being hovering in free space. The public appearance followed the commercial launch of Browning’s £340k flying jet suit. Feel like buying one? Well, even if you do, you cannot emulate the Iron Man, at least not immediately. You will need mandatory training.

Three days following the commercial launch of his £340,000 jet suit in partnership with department store chain Selfridges, amateur engineer Richard Browning was in Hampshire on Saturday to show off his creation before thousands at the biennial Farnborough International Airshow.

An Unprecedented Order Tally

Did you know the Farnborough International Airshow 2018 saw deals worth $192bn? That’s an increase of more than 50% if you look at the numbers from the previous edition. Boeing and Airbus stole the show. Embraer also gained momentum. With almost 100 countries represented at the show, it was a global affair in true sense. The show also saw a record Chinese presence.

Red Arrows At The Public Weekend

The crowd at the Farnborough Airshow 2018 watched the Red Arrows live in action. The jets grabbed quite a few eyeballs as they performed  three “fly-past” maneuvers. The crowd also got the chance to talk to the pilots, click photos, and ask for their autographs. Did you know that the Red Arrows also made another appearance in the Surrey Skies in July? They were a part of the RAF100 centenary celebrations.

Second chance to see the Red Arrows at Farnborough Airshow

Crowds caught an eyeful of red white and blue smoke on the first day of Farnborough International Airshow ‘s public weekend as the famous Red Arrows tore through the sky. Ever the main attraction , the red jets drew the crowds as they performed three fly past maneuvers before coming in to land on the runway on Saturday afternoon (July 21).

The Show Lived Up To Its Reputation

The biggest aviation event of the year never ceases to amaze us. FIA 2018 was no exception. From flying cars to space robots, attractions were aplenty. Drones, VR, Brexit – pretty much everything was on the agenda.  Several charities also made it to the show for support. Aerobility, which seeks to make aviation accessible to disabled people, was also there.

Flying cars, space robots and jetpacks: Our highlights from the biggest aviation event of the year

Real-life flying cars, space robots and jet-powered flying suits are just some of the highlights to come from the biennial Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) this year. Exhibits including the Pal-V Liberty, a gyroplane and roadster-in-one, and the luxury Volante Vision Concept, a three-seater aircraft or “sports car for the skies”, according to Aston Martin’s Simon Sproule, drew crowds during the week-long event.

The show saw an increase in the number of trade visitors. Over 80,000 of them passed through the gates. The delegations programme also experienced growth. A total of 156 civil and military delegations made it to the show. Hope FIA 2020 is even more successful.

The Farnborough International Airshow: Not Your Everyday Trade Show

Passenger Planes and Beyond!

Yes, the show does provide the biggest marketplace for passenger planes. But, it is also the perfect platform for the technologies of tomorrow. Companies look forward to billions of dollars in deals. So, they highlight the best of their technologies. FIA 2018 saw some unbelievable technologies where humans were not a part of the equation. From Insect Engineers to Black Swan, there were quite a few innovations that made heads turn.

Farnborough Air Show a testbed for aviation industry’s wilder imaginings

The Farnborough air show, best known as the year’s biggest marketplace for passenger planes, also acts as a testbed for the aviation industry’s wilder imaginings. Vying for attention with billions of dollars in jetliner deals at this year’s expo is a smorgasbord of new technologies, many seemingly intent on eliminating the human from the equation.

Boeing All The Way

Boeing claims to have outperformed Airbus at the Farnborough Airshow 2018. And well, the numbers do support their claim. The world’s largest plane maker bagged 100 more airplane orders than Airbus. But, they have to take this victory with a pinch of salt. They did not announce any orders from China. Airbus has managed to book more than 70 Chinese orders this year.

As the Farnborough Air Show ends, Boeing emerges clearly ahead

Boeing extended its already large sales lead for the year, although it has announced zero orders from China due to trade tensions while Airbus this year has booked more than 70 orders from China. Share story FARNBOROUGH, England – The business side of the Farnborough Air Show ended Thursday with Boeing winning just over 100 more airplane orders and commitments than Airbus.

Duopoly Made It Big, Yet Again

Boeing did emerge as the clear winner. But, it was the world’s commercial plane duopoly that stole the show, if we look at the bigger picture. Airbus and Boeing announced firm net orders and commitments for more than 960 planes. That’s close to $160 billion at list prices.

Airbus, Boeing gain more than 960 aircraft orders at Farnborough

Among the commitments this year are 60 additional firm orders for the A220, formerly the Bombardier CSeries, from the new US airline set up by David Neeleman. The world’s commercial aircraft duopoly once again scored big at an otherwise lackluster Farnborough Air Show with Airbus and Boeing announcing firm net orders and commitments for more than 960 aircraft, valued at $160 billion at list prices.

Of Contracts & Partnerships

FIA 2018 saw the announcement of several contracts. Many new partnerships came into the picture. A contract that became the talking point in no time was the one signed between JJ Churchill and Starrag. JJ Churchill has signed the contract for one more Starrag machining centre. The contract follows the announcement of a £70 million long-term contract with Rolls-Royce. So, it’s believed that the contract will further enhance the company’s abilities.

Matthew Heath, JJ Churchill’s sales manager signed the contract with Lee Scott of Starrag at the Farnborough Airshow. Following this week’s announcement of a £70 million long-term contract with Rolls-Royce, this purchase enhances the company’s ability to deliver turbine and compressor blades for civil engines in the UK and globally.

Aircraft That Grabbed The Eyeballs

The FIA 2018 saw a spectacular display of planes, as the companies left no stone unturned. They did everything they could to impress the buyers. From Embraer to Airbus and Boeing, everyone put their best foot forward. The show did live up to its reputation of showcasing the latest. From military hardware, commercial planes and flying cars to space technology.

Bloomberg | Bloomberg | Getty Images The 2018 Farnborough International Airshow has exhibited the latest in military hardware, commercial aircraft, flying cars and space technology. It’s also a big battle ground for aerospace giants Boeing and Airbus as they aim to win new customers.

Business:1; Political Chaos: 0

Political worries did not cast a shadow on the show. Business went on as usual. The show saw orders and commitments worth billions. This is a relief amid the political upheaval in the UK. With Brexit looming over, things could have gone south. But, they didn’t. The geopolitical chaos also did not deter the US government officials in any way.  They did their best to attract the top players in the commercial tech industry.

Deals Proliferate at Farnborough Airshow Despite Political Worries

FARNBOROUGH, England — It was business as usual — with billions in U.S. orders and commitments — at the Farnborough Airshow despite concerns that politics would cast a shadow. The show came amid political upheaval in the United Kingdom, with multiple leaders in government resigning over disagreements regarding the nation’s Brexit departure from the European Union, set to take place next year.

The Farnborough International Airshow never ceases to amaze us. FIA 2018 was no different. We saw deals worth billions of dollars. We also came face to face with the technologies of the future. And of course, the flying displays swept us off our feet. Looking forward to the next edition already. How about you?
