Aero Friedrichshafen 2024
AERO IS THE WORLD'S LEADING TRADE FAIR FOR GENERAL AVIATIONWhat was launched over 40 years ago with a handful of gliders and motor gliders as a clear aviation exhibition as part of a regional automobile exhibition has developed into one of the world's most important industry meetings with an impressive variety of aircraft of all kinds. Numerous exhibitors have remained loyal to AERO from the beginning, and many new ones have joined over the years and have made a significant contribution to the successful development of AERO Friedrichshafen.AERO also benefited from the Friedrichshafen aviation location, which was built in 1900 by Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin, and from the booming UL industry. In 1995, the business aviation area was introduced at AERO for the first time, and in the following years the trade fair significantly expanded its range of offerings in the areas of avionics, maintenance and aviation services. The move to the new exhibition halls at the airport followed in 2002. The AERO is one of the few trade fairs to have its own taxiway to the exhibition center. The trade fair's focus on those active in aviation and future topics has always driven the growth of AERO and made it the world's leading trade fair for innovations in general aviation that it is today. Since 2022, AERO has been organized by fairnamic GmbH, a joint venture between Messe Frankfurt and Messe Friedrichshafen.
