Aero India has already carved a niche for itself globally as a premier aerospace
exhibition, with seven successful editions organized between 1996 and 2011. In Aero
India 2011, the participation of exhibitors from 29 countries with 675 companies
(380 overseas + 295 domestic) and 47 overseas delegations was accommodated over
a gross exhibition area of 75,000 sqm (including outdoor), which was nearly 57%
more than the previous edition in 2009. The ninth edition of Aero India will be
held at Air Force Station, Yelahanka, near Bangalore from 6 Feb to 10 Feb in 2013.
Aero India 2013 will be organised in February 2013 and will provide a significant
platform in bolstering business opportunities in the international aviation sector.
It is favourably poised an exponential growth over previous edition. A rapidly growing
economy, defence preparedness challenges and opening up of defence production to
private sector, have given a major fillip to the defence industry in India. It has
also become a hub centre for defence business in the asia region.
