ILA Berlin Air Show, innovation and leadership in aerospace
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 displayed pioneering innovations, components made of novel materials such as ultra-light fiber composites allow for significant weight decreise and, therefor, 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 2020, 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.
