The Paris Air Show

The 54th edition of the Paris Air Show will take place at the Paris-Le Bourget Exhibition Centre from  June 19 to 25, 2023 and will once again bring together all the world’s industry players around the latest technological innovations.
The first 4 days of the Show will be reserved for Trade visitors followed by 3 days for the General Public.

Since 1909, the Paris Air Show has been constantly growing and remains today the biggest event in the world dedicated to the aerospace industry. With more than 2,300 international exhibitors, 140,000 trade visitors and 300 official delegations from all over the world, the Paris Air Show, organized with GIFAS (the French Aerospace Industries Association) is indisputably one of the highest points of the industry’s economic life.

In 2023, the Paris Air Lab will present a major feature area on innovations linked to low-carbon aircrafts, to discover the challenges faced and to be met by the air transport players, the disruptive innovations and the new modes of organization. A series of conferences and debates will be held in parallel with the presentation of the industrial transformations called for by this new air transport revolution.

The Paris Air Mobility will be dedicated to companies, start-ups and industrial pioneers in the manufacture of eVTOL (electric vertical take-off and landing). The massive adoption of this new technology, the air taxi of tomorrow, could change the way passengers and goods are transported.

Numerous start-ups will be hosted on the exhibitors’ stands and in the international pavilions, in order to create meetings and synergies on prospective themes such as the environment, new embedded energies, digital, big data, artificial intelligence, new space, the factory of the future, new materials, vehicles of the future, the passenger experience, etc.

The International Paris Air Show is a special time for every business, an opportunity in the space of one week to meet all the main industry players, seize new business opportunities, present expertise and innovations to the world and forge technology partnerships. By taking part in the Show professionals will be where all the decisions are made, where the history of aerospace is being written.

Many services are offered to trade visitors, such as pre-scheduled business meetings (Aerospace Meetings Paris) to meet industrialists and do business, catering areas, a business centre, as well as the Elite Pro programme to benefit from an exceptional VIP welcome and high quality services.
