Aero Engineering Show

 Aero Eng_Button Logo 2015_188x55



Now in its 7th year, the ‘Aero Engineering Show’ represents the UK’s only 100% dedicated trade show and supporting Open Conference for Aerostructures, Wings, Engines & Aero Systems engineering, providing a uniquely tailored annual ‘exhibition showcase’ of the technology and engineering capability supply chain.

With supporting input from the UK aerospace industry’s national, regional and sectoral technical and trade bodies, the Aero Engineering Show will again present a core show component of the Advanced Engineering UK 2015 group of events. A record volume of UK and International specialist suppliers will be on the show floor supporting the aero structures, power plant and aero systems engineering sectors.
