Messe Augsburg gains an additional event when Airtec, another international trade fair, comes to the Fuggerstadt in 2023

Messe Augsburg gains another trade fair for the Messe Augsburg venue. Airtec is the international innovation fair for aerospace, future air mobility and new space, and will be moving to Augsburg in October 2023.

Airtec will be held from October 25 to 27, 2023 at Messe Augsburg. Messe Augsburg is an attractive venue due to its high level of customer service and flexible, modern trade fair grounds: IGF GmbH, the organizer of Airtec, recognized these ideal framework conditions in Augsburg and further growth potential for the trade fair, which has been established on the market for many years. Approx. 350 exhibitors from 30 nations are anticipated to descend on Augsburg in 2023. Suppliers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) from all over the world will exhibit flying objects, components, demonstrators and simulators and showcase them in the trade fair grounds.

"We extend a warm welcome to the aerospace city of Augsburg to all the AIRTEC exhibitors and visitors from all over the world. With AIRTEC, Messe Augsburg has acquired another trade fair and congress event that is the perfect fit for the region, which is an international hub for new technologies and innovation in the aerospace industry. Augsburg is the true home of aerospace and astronautics, with numerous companies engaged in research, development, production and actual applications in the sector. I wish the event every success, we look forward to many fascinating exchanges and excellent results in an authentic setting," explains Eva Weber, Lord Mayor of the City of Augsburg.

"With Airtec, another international event is coming to Augsburg, which is an excellent addition to our portfolio. Messe Augsburg is again raising its profile as the location in southern Germany for the expert and specialist sectors," says Lorenz A. Rau, Managing Director of Messe Augsburg.

The organizer of Airtec 2023, IGF GmbH and its trade fair manager Diana Schnabel, expressed her delight at the change of location: "After years of the pandemic and its consequences, 2023 looks to be the year of new beginnings and therefore just the right time to move Airtec 2023 to a larger venue. Airtec will therefore gain new and diverse opportunities and advantages for international growth at Messe Augsburg. We are pleased to offer a successful and highly innovative international trade fair for aerospace, future air mobility and new space for exhibitors and trade visitors alike which will work closely with the region, the city of Augsburg and Messe Augsburg as the guest organizer.”

"The entire region and also the Free State will benefit from AIRTEC, the new international trade fair for aerospace at Messe Augsburg. In addition to raising the profile of the region and the Free State as an excellent location for the aerospace sector, Airtec will be a great boost for the hotel industry, the retail trade, service providers and skilled trades. The fact that another international trade fair has found its home in Augsburg confirms the attractiveness of our city as a trade fair location," says Dr. Wolfgang Hübschle, Economic Officer of the City of Augsburg.
