2017 International Paris Air Show

From 19 to 25 June 2017, Luxembourg will be showcasing its expertise at Le Bourget.

19-siae2017The 52nd edition of the International Paris Air Show(salon international de l'aéronautique et de l'espace, Siae), an event which dates back to 1909, will be taking place at Le Bourget Exhibition Centre from 19 to 25 June. More than 350,000 visitors are expected at this leading trade show for the aeronautical and aerospace industry.

Exhibitors from all over the world, including Luxembourg

Luxembourg has been a member of the ESA (European Space Agency) for more than 10 years. It is involved in several programmes for the development of satellite communications systems and related services.  So it seems only logical for the country to showcase its expertise at this trade show as an international exhibitor. This year, 18 entities from Luxembourg will be represented at the show, including LIST, the Ministry of the Economy, SES and LuxGovSat. Most of the country's exhibitors will be based in Hall 2b.

Keen to maintain the momentum generated by its Spaceresources.lu initiative, launched in 2016 for the peaceful exploration and sustainable use of space resources, the Luxembourg Government is using the Paris Air Show to create new opportunities. With a comprehensive new space policy, Luxembourg has demonstrated that it is willing to provide strong support and innovative solutions for the sector with its participation in prestigious events of this nature.

The show is open to visitors from 23 June (the first few days are for professionals only).
