Airport Cluster Finland and 12 of its member companies will exhibit at the world’s leading trade exhibition for airport industry 11-14 October 2011. The 18th inter airport Europe event takes place in Munich Trade Fair Centre. In 2009 the event attracted over 500 exhibitors from almost 30 different countries and over 12 000 trade visitors from 123 countries. The Finnish Pavilion, a specific area for Finnish exhibitors, gathers again this year together several Finnish aviation and airport related companies to exhibit their products and services.
The biggest stand in the Finnish Pavilion is the joint stand of Airport Cluster Finland. At the joint stand 12 Airport Cluster member companies unite their forces to promote this Finnish cluster, whose members provide technologies, service solutions and R&D knowhow to airports worldwide. At the same time the companies get an excellent opportunity to present their own knowhow, as well as their product and service portfolios. At least one of the exhibitors will also launch a new application during the event.
On Wednesday 12 October, Airport Cluster Finland will introduce its newest development project, Airport Concepts, in an afternoon seminar event. Airport Concepts project aims to combine products and services in a new innovative way creating “turnkey solutions” for airports as the end customers. Interesting speakers and current topics will open up the idea behind the concept thinking, which aims to create benefits, like cost savings, when purchasing products and services to airports. The seminar will also include a panel, during which it is possible to discuss the topics more deeply with the speakers and other seminar participants. The seminar will end with a cocktail event at the Airport Cluster Finland joint stand.
Having altogether 26 member companies, Airport Cluster Finland aims to enhance and support the growth and internationalization of its cluster members. In practice this means, for example, organizing seminars and net-working events, and implementing innovative development projects in cooperation with different organizations and the cluster members. At the same time all the activity supports the development of the airport city Aviapolis, the dynamic business environment around Helsinki-Vantaa International Airport.
