The benefits of attendance at an international airshow are obvious to the organisers of the Asia Pacific region's premier aerospace exhibition and airshow, Asian Aerospace (Chalet B31).

No sooner had the dust settled on the Singapore show in February than preparations were being made for participation at Farnborough, where news of the historic next event were announced.

Asian Aerospace 2006 will be the last time the show is held at the Changi Exhibition Centre, which has been home to the exhibition for almost two decades, before moving to a purpose-built site nearby.

The niche specialist sectors at Asian Aerospace are set both to continue and expand, with a repeat of the successful new spotlight on Unmanned Aerial vehicles (UAVs) and the introduction of a new special focus on the training and simulation (T&S) market.

The show's popular conference programme will also continue with the Asia Pacific Security Conference (APSEC) and C4I Asia Conference.

Ed Ng, president of Asian Aerospace 2006, said at Farnborough: "The value-added initiatives and events have made Asian Aerospace a must-attend event."
