Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) is returning to the Hamburg Messe this year on 6-8 June 2023 and the event will once again have a full spectrum of interior products and services on display.
With more than 4.2 billion passengers set to take to the skies over the next 12 months, AIX organisers say the 2023 event is on track to exceed expectations. Leading airlines, lessors and business jet operators are expected to attend AIX and the event will deliver the optimal platform for product specifiers to see and test more than 1,000 products from leading global airline suppliers based in 30-plus countries.
Boeing and Airbus as well as interiors sector and seating specialists Safran, RECARO Aircraft Seating, JAMCO Corporation and HAECO Cabin Solutions will be at the show, in addition to in-flight entertainment and connectivity providers Panasonic Avionics, Thales Group, Astronics Corporation, Latitude Aero and Bluebox Aviation Systems plus many more.
Solutions for every aspect of the aircraft cabin interiors environment will be on display, including cabin management systems, flooring solutions, galley equipment, in-flight entertainment and connectivity, interior paints and coverings, lighting, lavatory and waste equipment, seating and more.
The show will feature dedicated zones in key product areas such as in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC). This zone will again provide a dedicated space for attendees to test the latest IFEC products from more than 50 exhibiting companies.
The show’s innovative show planning tool, AIX Connect, will enable attendees and exhibitors to meet during the show. With more than 5,000 confirmed meetings scheduled across the three days of last year’s show, AIX Connect will once again help attendees build business connections, discuss new projects and facilitate the industry’s overwhelming desire to network and do business.
The popular CabinSpace Live Seminar theatre will again feature in the show and will help connect audience members with cabin interior industry leaders as they share experiences and insights into current and emerging challenges. A full programme of sessions and speakers will be announced in the coming months.
The show will also play host to the winners of this year’s Crystal Cabin Awards. Attendees are also encouraged to immerse themselves in the latest insights at the Passenger Experience Conference, which takes place on the day before AIX on 5 June and brings together leading visionaries representing airlines, airframers, OEMs, suppliers and design agencies to discuss the future of passenger experience, onboard environments, and services. A welcome party on 5 June – after the conference closes – will provide the perfect platform to meet new contacts in a more relaxed atmosphere.
Polly Magraw, Event Director, Aircraft Interiors Expo, commented: “It is great to see the recovery of the industry maintaining pace. While there is still a long way to go back to pre-pandemic levels, the industry is taking the right steps, and we’re delighted to see airlines embracing the opportunity to transform their business operations to meet the evolving expectations of passengers.
“After the return of AIX in 2022, we’re excited to get back to business, creating even more opportunities for attendees to connect, learn and source the latest innovations. After what was one of our most successful years for new exhibitor launches, we can’t wait to see what the industry has in store for 2023.”
