ILA Goes Digital

ILA Goes Digital is a way of keeping the aerospace industry connected. In view of closed borders and travel bans it has never been more important to find international ways out of the crisis and to show what the aviation and aerospace of tomorrow will look like.

The digital ILA will discuss key issues of the industry such as green aviation, digitization or additive manufacturing.

It is now perhaps a unique opportunity to accelerate the move towards climate neutral flying within the framework of the Green Deal. At the same time, aviation has the potential to contribute to the economic upturn. Aerospace is vital to the prosperity of all of us around the world.

ILA Goes Digital will contribute to this as a worldwide presentation and discussion platform.

I am happy to announce that ILA Berlin is going virtual, with the official partnership of the European Commission. ILA Berlin is the hub for the international aerospace industry – showcasing the best high-tech products as well as research and development projects. Join us on the virtual market place to explore the first digital aerospace trade fair!

The 8th European Aeronautics Days (#AeroDays2020) is scheduled to take place in Berlin on 24-26 November 2020. AERODAYS is the leading event in aviation research and innovation in Europe. It will be a major forum for leading representatives from the aviation industry, research organisations and policymakers to exchange ideas on the future of aviation and the delivery of EU policy priorities, such as the European Green Deal. Stay tuned for more information!

Jean-Eric Paquet, Director-General for Research & Innovation, European Commission


Even in these times in which we are unable to meet in person due to the coronavirus pandemic, the desire to exchange information on specialist subjects and network remains. ILA Goes Digital is the ideal platform for this: product presentations, webinars, matchmaking – ILA Goes Digital means we are making our aerospace show accessible to everyone, regardless of where they may be around the globe.
