London airports exhibition

Heathrow is backing the 3rd British-Irish EXPO which takes place at London Olympia 12-13 June.

The airport’s CEO John Holland-Kaye neatly summed up the total rational behind the successful series: “Aviation links are essential for the economic success of any country, particularly for island nations like the UK and Ireland.  We will only have a thriving and successful economy if exporters can get overseas to set up deals, if they can get their goods to export markets efficiently, and if inward investors, tourists and students, can get here easily. This EXPO gives us an opportunity to demonstrate why aviation is so important to providing jobs and growth, and why it is critical for both the UK and EU to prioritise aviation during Brexit negotiations.

The launch show in 2016 was the largest ever airport industry exhibition staged in Britain or Ireland, and Birmingham NEC for 2017 was a sell-out success.

For 2018 the move to London presents British-Irish EXPO an opportunity for expansion with the show expected to grow beyond 200+ exhibitors, the conference session hosting a number of high profile speakers, from one end of the scale Lord Paul Deighton, chairman Heathrow, and Neil Pakey chairman, The Regional and Business Airports Group.

Entry is free by registration.
