ILA goes Digital
A NEW FORMAT FOR A CHALLENGING TIME
The current global situation presents us with challenges. But it also offers opportunities – ILA Berlin took its chance to present a new format, ILA Goes Digital.
ILA Goes Digital took place from May 13th to July 31st 2020, being the first aerospace exhibition worldwide. More than 120 exhibitors and 30.000 visitors were active in the platform. Please visit the archive of ILA Goes Digital to see the contents presented.
ILA BERLIN: An innovation firework
ILA Berlin is the hub for the international aerospace industry. With over 1,000 exhibitors from all over the world, ILA Berlin showcases the industry's very best in terms of high-tech products as well as research and development projects. More than 65,000 trade visitors and 115,000 members of the public attended the leading aerospace innovation fair in 2018 in Berlin, to experience this fascinating industry first hand, right in the heart of Europe.
INNOVATION FOR THE FUTURE OF FLYING
Eco-efficiency and digitalization are currently shaping the discourse within the aerospace industry. ILA Berlin has displayed pioneering innovations, components made of novel materials such as ultra-light fiber composites allow for significant weight decreise and, therefore, fuel savings. Hybrid-electric engines paired with alternative fuels are making aviation greener than ever. Thanks to digital technologies, innovative engines are able to recognize and report necessary maintenance and repair work in advance. These, as well as other pioneering aerospace developments, can be seen at ILA Berlin, for example in the ILA Future Lab.
UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS FOR THE FUTURE OF MOBILITY
Autonomous flying air taxis could soon define the future of urban mobility and the industry is working hard on the required technologies. Drones have the power to unlock new possibilities for several sectors of the economy - from precision farming in agriculture, to maintenance of bridges and dams, to the delivery of medicines to remote areas or crisis regions. ILA Berlin is showcasing pioneering innovations and their vision for the future of mobility in the exhibition area UAS Innovation Hub (Unmanned Aerial Systems).
LARGEST SPACE EXHIBITION IN EUROPE
The presentation of space technology at ILA Berlin is unique. It is where agencies, scientists, established space companies and New Space start-ups cross borders and join forces to present innovations and developments for the good of mankind. Hardly any other industry relies so extensively on international cooperation as space. For example, programs to secure access to space, space exploration or satellite communications and earth observations are primarily implemented collaboratively. ILA Berlin's high calibre makes it the ideal platform for the international space community to further define joint projects and discuss future topics, from Big Data to Intelligent Mobility.
AN EXCLUSIVE MARKETPLACE FOR THE SUPPLIER INDUSTRY
In the International Supplier Center ISC, more than 300 suppliers from all over the world gather to present their innovations in their very own hall - this is a unique experience where the largest supplier know-how in the world comes together in one place. The ISC also brings suppliers and buyers together, both individually and exclusively.
A FASCINATION FOR FLIGHT
At ILA Berlin, hundreds of aircraft can be admired both on the ground and in the air - from large jets to cargo planes, helicopters and drone to military aircraft. In a unique flying display program, all the different aircrafts can show off their skills.
AVIATION IS A HIGH-TECH INDUSTRY LIKE NO OTHER. AT ILA BERLIN, THE INDUSTRY SHOWS WHAT IT’S GOT.
What materials will be used to manufacture aircraft in 20 years? What will production and the logistics chain look like tomorrow? And when will the first electric mid-range aircraft be ready for takeoff? At ILA Berlin, our focus is the future.
SPACE: IT’S ALL AROUND US AT ILA BERLIN. LIKE NO OTHER EXHIBITION.
Space is about investing in our future. In today’s digitized world, space offers a growing international market with networks that go beyond borders. That’s why international contacts are more important than ever before. ILA Berlin brings together the global space community.
DEFENSE & SECURITY
DEFENSE NEEDS A STRONG INDUSTRY BEHIND IT. AT ILA BERLIN, THE SECTOR SHOWS WHAT IT’S MADE OF.
Cybercrime, asymmetrical warfare, terrorism – policymakers are continually confronted with new threats. At ILA Berlin, the defense industry and military show how they protect countries.
ILA BERLIN IS AN INTERACTIVE BUSINESS PLATFORM FOR SUPPLIERS.
Suppliers are the bedrock of the aerospace industry. Connect with customers and partners, and set up meetings for the next big deal.
UNMANNED SYSTEMS: HOW DRONES CAN IMPROVE OUR LIVES
Unmanned aviation has unleashed a revolution in aviation. The question is: How can the private sector truly benefit from drones? When will we be able to hail an air taxi? And how can these new forms of mobility be deployed sustainably? In the new ILA exhibition area “UAS Innovation Hub” you can meet the key players in unmanned aviation to discuss these questions – and many more.
