All the major contractors are returning to the event, including Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, Thalès, Safran, CNES, Alcatel Alenia Space, EADS Astrium, Finmecanica (Augusta, Aermacchi, Alenia Aeronautica Spazio and Piaggio Aero), Rolls Royce, and Pratt & Wittney. During the 2004 event, 9,000 meetings were held between 468 companies (including 150 contractors) from 25 countries, represented by 201 buyers and 318 sellers.
AEROMART has consolidated its international dimension with an increase for the 2006 event in the number of companies from Britain (more than 30 companies), Italy (25 companies), Germany, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, the Netherlands, China (AVIC I & II delegation with over 20 companies), Israel, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, Canada, Latvia, Lithuania and Turkey. New delegations are expected from India, Russia, Portugal, the USA (where AEROMART is now considered to be of economic interest to US companies) and South Korea.
At a time when many aerospace companies are looking to optimise their cost-effectiveness ratio, business conventions are enjoying increased success. The business convention formula has many advantages over an ordinary trade show: a business convention such as AEROMART offers private pre-scheduled meetings between buyers/contractors on the one hand, and suppliers/sub-contractors on the other. For a much lower all-inclusive price than that of booking a stand at a specialised trade fair, each participating company can select its contacts according to its needs and, a few days before the event, will receive a timetable of 15 to 20 targeted meetings over two days.
AEROMART is organised by Midi-Pyrenees Expansion (the regional development agency of the Midi-Pyrenees region of south-west France) and the Toulouse Chamber of Commerce and Industry, and is funded by the Midi-Pyrenees Regional Council, the Toulouse Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Haute-Garonne Departmental Council and the Greater Toulouse Conurbation Community.
BCI, a leading European promoter of business conventions, is responsible for organising and marketing the event, which will be held on 29 and 30 November 2006 in Toulouse at the Parc des Expositions.
