Aircraft Interiors Expo 2023 | June 6-8, Hamburg Messe
This year’s Aircraft Interiors Expo 2023 reinforced why this is the world’s leading event for the cabin interiors industry.
From far-out cabin concepts to the latest products, it’s a place where airlines can find hidden gems in the full spectrum of onboard experience at the Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX). The Hamburg Messe is the place where the cabin interiors supply chain struts its stuff.
The future of aircraft interiors can always be found at AIX
I remember attending the very first Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg as an exhibitor and recall the excitement of setting up a booth in the Hamburg Messe. Straight away, we knew, even as a relatively small supplier, that we were on to something huge.
That’s the beauty of the show, from the cabin interiors supplier’s perspective. Aircraft Interiors Expo (AIX) allows you to put yourself on relatively equal footing with the big guys. From this one spot, you can reach and meet with airlines from around the world, potential partners, and your own suppliers. The whole industry, really.
It’s the perfect location to do business, build relationships and find practical solutions to whatever is holding back your latest innovations, be it a hard-to-find material, testing or service support, or relevant technologies.
This must-attend event can help generate revenue and enhance your competitiveness by giving you a fresher perspective on the product features, services, and details that your customers value most.
You are bound to be inspired as you walk the halls of the Hamburg Messe and attend the can’t-miss Passenger Experience Conference. (More on that below).
The Ultimate Cabin Interiors Solutions
The event has grown dramatically over the years, becoming the ultimate nexus for interested visitors from airlines and industry suppliers. It’s hard to think of any element of the aircraft interiors and passenger comfort industries that can’t be found there today. But if your product or service is not being represented, then think seriously about becoming an exhibitor in 2024.
Here’s a standout from this year’s show:
Passenger Experience Conference (PEC)
The Passenger Experience Conference (PEC) is another highlight of the Aircraft Interiors Expo experience for those who want to learn more about current and future trends in passenger comfort.
It brings together industry executives and engineers to discuss the future of the passenger experience.
Expert speakers from airlines, airframers, OEMs, suppliers and design organizations discuss key topics on passenger comfort, design challenges of onboard environments, new technologies and services.
Inflight entertainment and connectivity
The In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) sector is also well-represented at AIX, including the latest developments in seat-embedded IFE, wireless IFE, and Air-to-Ground or Satellite connectivity.
The aircraft cabin has a limited area to fill with structures, seats, and brand details, but airlines can utilize these digital innovations to improve onboard experiences for their passengers, making it a very competitive field indeed.
Visitors to the Aircraft Interiors Expo can discover new products and technologies that can help passengers pass the time on a long flight and keep in touch with critical business on the ground while in the air.
What some of this year’s attendees had to say about AIX:
“The show has been really good and really busy. We weren’t sure what to expect after three years, but we’ve been fully booked with meetings and the quality of visitors has been great. We’ve had lots of interest in the new products we’ve launched at the show. The feedback has been really positive and it’s great to know that we’re launching the products our customers want and need.”
Marketing Director for STG Aerospace, Exhibitionist.
“It’s so good to meet with people again that I haven’t seen for a long time, or haven’t met at all because the projects we’re working on began during the pandemic. The highlight has to be all the people we work with in the cabin business are here at AIX. Big and small players and we’re able to connect with all of them. If I could describe it in three words it’s everyone is here”
VP Technical Director, BOS Aviation and VIP.
“AIX 2022 has been the best show I’ve attended since I started working for this company. We were able to meet customers from all over the world, increase our brand awareness and generate hot leads. It was great to develop authentic relationships with people once again and tell them what TSI Seats are all about. We successfully launched two products, which were well received.”
Marketing Director TSI Seat, Exhibitor.
“After a three-year hiatus from in-person shows, I was expecting lots of innovation and new technology, and I was right. It was also really pleasing to have lots of face-to-face interactions and receive direct answers to queries about products and suppliers, which aren’t so easy to get over email.”
Aavion and Interiors managers.
“Coming to AIX, I was excited about the opportunities, having just started in a new position. I gained so many insights into the customer experience and gained new perspectives on IFE and connectivity. Communication was second nature, and it was well set up to build relationships with suppliers – my main objective. It’s a one-stop shop for the aircraft interiors industry!”
FICA & FFE Manager Air France VIPs.
