The 22nd edition of inter airport Europe, the International Exhibition for Airport Equipment, Technology, Design & Services, ended on October 11 with a record visitor number. During the four exhibition days, a total of 14,962 trade visitors from 108 countries came to the Munich Trade Fair Centre in Germany to discover the latest trends in the airport industry and source innovative equipment and systems. This represents an 8% increase in visitor numbers compared to the previous show in 2017. With a total of 659 exhibitors from 40 countries and a net exhibition space of 33,550 sqm, inter airport Europe 2019 could also increase its floor space by 5.5% compared to the previous event and was therefore bigger than ever. The most important exhibitor countries after Germany were France, Great Britain, the USA, Italy, the Netherlands, China, Spain, Sweden and Austria. Of the exhibitors, 74% came to Munich from outside Germany.

“This very successful event once more reflects the dynamic development of the airport industry, which is currently driven by trends such as the reduction of CO2 emissions, cost efficiency, enhanced passenger experience as well as digitalisation and automation. Driverless vehicles, automated baggage handling, highly developed systems and zero emission ramp vehicles – all these latest developments were presented by the exhibitors at this year’s show”, says Ulika Tosner, Exhibition Director of the organisers of inter airport Europe, Mack Brooks Exhibitions.
