“Asian Aerospace has been a good chance for us to interface with customers and see new customers. Because it’s a B2B there are appointments scheduled because people don’t just walk in off the street to buy our products.”




Giorgio Pozzi, marketing & sales cargo manager, Brescia airport, Italy

“Overall I would say that it has been pretty useful, although I would have liked to see more cargo airline exhibitors from China and AsiaPacific. We are the second-largest cargo airport in Italy and already have direct flights to six airports in this region. With our current runway extension and apron improvements, we will have significantly greater capacity.”




Natalie Chan, customer relationship executive, Aramex, Kowloon

“It’s a shame that there weren’t more logistics companies exhibiting as this made networking – and product matching - difficult at the show. We did make a few useful contacts though. Also, I found that some of the organisation was poor as I queued outside for more than half an hour to try and visit the A380 and there were no announcements to say that it was already too late and we had missed the opportunity.”




Ram Menen, divisional senior VP, cargo, Emirates Skycargo

“This is the first time Air Freight Asia has been integreated with the show. The interaction has been extremely good, with a larger number of people. We got to meet a large number of customers so it’s been a very good experience.”




Vince Seeger, director Maximus Air Cargo

“It’s our first step into the Far East market, and we thought it would give us a good feel for the market and get our name established. We’ve had some successful meetings and we’ve achieved what we set out to do.”




Dr Lado Benisek, Neotex

“It is interesting to be in a different market, but we have seen fewer visitors this year in this part of the world than we saw at Aircraft Interiors last year when it was a standalone show.”

“We are very impressed with the congress and the show. It has been a great success for us.”


 Ambassador to China


Declan Kelleher, Irish Ambassador to China 

“I’m very impressed, China is an important market for Ireland. The companies exhibiting here have been very impressed with the level of meetings they have had and the many opportunities that have arisen.”




Folko Hulsebusch , Marketing manager BeOne Group.

“As a consulting company we have no products as such to show on our stand; We need time to talk to people. And this show, has given us an excellent platform to do that. The first day was extremely impressive and the combination of events gave us opportunities to explore that we haven’t had before, for example at Hamburg Interiors. We will get a real chance to evaluate our success here in the next three or four weeks, but first impressions are that the first three days have been very good but maybe four days is too long.”
