Singapore Airshow has been successful in bringing together the largest number of high-level military and government delegations and leading industry players from airlines, airport operators, aircraft manufacturers and related industries from the all corners of the globe. The 2016 edition has received a strong vote of confidence with more than 1,000 participating companies from some 50 countries all confirming their attendance at the Airshow. This constitutes over 90% of exhibition space being taken up before the show, 75% of which are returning exhibitors and industry heavyweights, such as Airbus, Bell Helicopter, Boeing, Bombardier, Embraer, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), Pratt & Whitney, Rolls-Royce, ST Engineering, Thales and UTC Aerospace Systems.

The projected growth of Asia’s aircraft fleet size over the next 20 years is phenomenal. According to Boeing, Asia will account for close to 40 percent of new aircraft deliveries whilst North America and Europe will account for 21 percent and 19 percent respectively, making Asia’s fleet size the largest in the world by 2034. This rate of growth emphasises the need for regional investment to support and expand aviation infrastructure including airport and airspace capacity, and the corresponding increase in demand for MRO and other auxiliary services and industries1.
 
In addition to mainstay events such as the Exhibition, Static Display, Aerobatic Display, Technology Seminars and Strategic Conferences, the upcoming show in 2016 will showcase new and enhanced segments such as:
 
Business Forums
Back by popular demand, the Business Forums will cover four key areas – Emerging Technologies, Training & Simulation, Asia as well as the partnership between companies in France and Singapore. Together, they focus on the latest developments and business opportunities in the aerospace and aviation markets, providing insights and strategic guidance for attendees to tap on key aerospace growth markets.
 
New and Improved Exhibition Zones
-Training & Simulation Zone: The scope of the aviation training zone has been expanded to include a military training and simulation section to better meet the needs of the industry, in line with growing global demand for training and simulation.
-Aerospace Emerging Technologies Zone: The Aerospace Emerging Technologies Zone will offer exhibitors a platform to showcase their products and offerings in two broad categories – Aerospace Manufacturing and Aerospace IT.

Feature Country: France
The Feature Country series was first introduced at the Singapore Airshow in 2014 to spotlight on countries which have strong and thriving businesses in the aerospace, defence and aviation sectors. It offers companies exhibiting in the Feature Country pavilion increased exposure through access to specific activities and programmes which includes, for example, specially facilitated meetings with VIP delegations. These companies will be able to leverage the Feature Country platform to better explore and tap into the rich opportunities available in the Asia Pacific market.
 
France has been chosen as the Singapore Airshow 2016 Feature Country because of its position as one of the major players in the aviation industry. It is a key global aerospace services and products exporter, with an aerospace, defence and security industry worth 47.9 billion euros2. French aviation companies have consistently had a strong presence at the Singapore Airshow and will be able to leverage its Feature Country status to chart new heights and showcase their latest technologies and innovations at Singapore Airshow 2016.
