The Aero Expo Panama Pacifico (AEPP) will be held at the Panama Pacifico International Airport on Thursday 20 and Friday, April 21 and will include a diverse list of exhibitors and attendees from the Americas and Caribbean. It is the largest aviation exhibition in the region between Mexico and Brazil and promises, from early registrations and exhibition agreements, to be larger than its premier in 2016.
The fair gives the opportunity to buyers and suppliers of the aviation industry off seeing the latest developments in this sector without having to go to fairs in North America. The public will also have the chance to admire the finest private jets and helicopters on offer.
According to AEPP officials, the Latin American economy has seen an average seven percent annual growth in the last five years and this will continue to drive up demand for business aviation across the region. Most of the 25 exhibitors at the 2016 show are confirmed to return in 2017. These included Dassault Falcon, Embraer Executive Jets, Pilatus, Rockwell Collins, Lufthansa and CAE. The number of airplanes on display has not been confirmed but the 2017 show is expanding its static display to include helicopters.
The AEPP program will include panel discussions and seminars on topics such as safety, regulations, finance and airport development, as well as the general state of business aviation in Latin America. Speakers will include Jay Faria, president of Airtrade Aviation, and Jaime Fabrega, president of local industry group, Asociación Panameña de Aviación.
“This will be a more diverse show as it is open to helicopters and has more participants,” said AEPP founder Yvan Boniface. “But basically it’s the same format, as we got great feedback from last year’s participants. It includes a static display, an indoor exhibit hall, and workshops. We will also offer a networking soirée in one of our partner hotels as we realize that most of our visitors come to meet potential new buyers and partners to expand their businesses in the region. This is going to be a great party, with a Latin flavor.”
