ILA Berlin features the first in-person gathering of the aerospace industry in Europe since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. From June 22-26, 2022, Europe’s leading aerospace trade fair will once again transform Berlin into “the place to be”, welcoming aerospace pioneers and space enthusiasts from all over the world.
Under the slogan #PioneeringAerospace, ILA Berlin is also proud to be hosting its partner, the European Commission. This strategic partnership contributes to strengthen Europe’s technological leadership and to pave the way for a sustainable future for aerospace that is “Airborne in Europe”. #ILA22 showcases the transformation of civil aviation towards climate neutrality around the three key topics: Innovation, New Technologies and Sustainability. At the same time, #ILA22 will also highlight the benefits of discoveries made in space for society as a whole, ranging from climate protection and digitalisation, to mobility, security and defence.
A special feature of this year’s ILA Berlin will be the five STAGES, which will be spread across the four exhibition halls located directly next to the newly opened BER airport. These infotainment STAGES include expert talks, panel discussions, debates and science slams evolving around future trends in aerospace. In addition, the #ILA22 CareerHub provides the younger generation as well as experienced professionals with an opportunity to engage and network with key players from the aerospace industry.
With its high-tech solutions the defence industry contributes to ensure that our armed forces have the capabilities to protect our freedom, security and democratic values. Cybersecurity, digitalization and interconnectivity form an indispensable basis to increase the use of unmanned aerial systems for defence purposes. At #ILA22, these areas will represent a main focus.
Thanks to the newly created platform, ILA DIGITAL, aerospace pioneers will also have the opportunity to follow a large part of the daily onsite programme virtually. What is more, this novel virtual space offers product presentations, matchmaking, lead generation, and personal meetings in online cafés and dedicated digital exhibitor spaces, allowing for a maximum of outreach and interaction.
#ILA22 kicks-off on Wednesday June 22 with three exclusive days for professional visitors, followed by two public days during the week-end of June 25-26.
