Reed Exhibitions has confirmed that Asian Aerospace will be moved to Hong Kong after the final show in Singapore this month.

The trade and consumer exhibitions organiser says in a statement that “the new venue for its flagship international aerospace industry event, Asian Aerospace, will be in Hong Kong”.

Reed Exhibitions, which is a sister company of Flight International, says the show will take place between 3 September and 6 September 2007 at AsiaWorld-Expo at Hong Kong's Chek Lap Kok airport. More details are to be announced later this week.

The final Asian Aerospace airshow in Singapore is to take place next week. The air show takes place every two years and has long been a joint venture between Reed Exhibitions and Singapore Technologies Engineering but the Singaporean government announced late last year that it would be organising its own airshow from February 2008, prompting Reed Exhibitions to look for an alternative location.
