Aerospace and defence industry companies exhibiting at Asian Aerospace Asian Defence Technology next year will be able to set up potential business deals before the show starts with the introduction of a new online business matching programme.
The new Premium Webplus system introduced by the show organisers will offer exhibitors enhanced display features for their products and services, with an active function to allow progressive updates before, during and after the show. 
In addition, a business matching programme, linked to company product listings, will allow exhibitors to connect with buyers and arrange business meetings ahead of the event.
In 2004, the event attracted almost 27,000 visitors over four trade days, and 48,000 visitors over the two public days. A total of 148 official delegations from 47 countries attended, with almost 800 exhibitors from close to 40 countries taking part.
With interest in the show – heading for its 13th staging – at an all-time high, 90% of the available space at the show site has already been sold and more than 200 military delegations invited so far. 

The organisers expect record attendance by delegations at the Asia Pacific region’s premier aerospace and defence exhibition show.  Next year will also see several new national pavilions – from Romania, Ireland and the Middle East – included in the extensive line which has been a regular feature at the show.
Asian Aerospace 2006 will also see the biggest calendar of strategic industry conferences. Now an integral part of the Asia Pacific region’s premier aerospace exhibition and air show, the conferences include the well-established Asia Pacific Security Conference (APSEC), C4i Asia Conference and the IATA/Asian Aerospace Aviation Summit as well as the new events Land Defence Asia Conference, Unmanned Systems Asia-Pacific Conference, Asia Pacific Airline Training Symposium, and Welcoming the A380 conference. 
Ed Ng, president of Asian Aerospace 2006, says: “We are on target for Asian Aerospace 2006 to be one of our most successful shows in the event’s 25 year history.  With solid support from our partners and customers, we look forward to having the broadest representation of aerospace industry products and services on display.
“The show has traditionally attracted most of the top 100 aerospace companies in the world, and a myriad list of other companies which support the global civil and military aerospace sector.  We’re pleased to introduce the new online business matching programme, which will ensure that exhibitors can make the most of their involvement, not only during Asian Aerospace, but before and after it as well.  By introducing this online technology, we hope to help our customers make the most of their participation at Asian Aerospace.”
