AERO SA set to change aviation exhibitions in South Africa

Wonderboom National Airport, Pretoria, Tshwane, South Africa
4-6 July 2019.

As a subsidiary of one of the world’s leading events and fairs companies, Messe Frankfurt South Africa in partnership with Messe Friedrichshafen – the organizer of AERO Friedrichshafen, recently announced the launch of AERO South Africa. AERO SA will be taking place at Wonderboom National Airport, Tshwane, South Africa from 4-6 July 2019.

Speaking at the launch event, Konstantin von Vieregge, CEO of Messe Frankfurt SA, said that “although there is a lot of negative sentiment around the South African economy, we are in for the long-haul, and believe that this is the perfect time to launch a business-to-business show specifically related to general aviation in Africa”. “According to the GAMA report 2017, there has been a steady increase in aircraft registrations in South Africa, and that there is a gap in the market for such an event”, said von Vieregge.

A show like AERO SA will be the perfect place to bring clients and businesses together, “Same as AERO Friedrichshafen, the South African edition will focus on Light/Medium sized aircrafts and it will emphasize the importance of aviation as a key to growing the economy. AERO SA will highlight South Africa on the aviation map as well as ensure that South Africa remains the premiere aviation hub on the African continent”, commented von Vieregge.

AERO SA plans to unite a broad spectrum of the general aviation industry under one show and at one location and will be a platform to engage with all sectors of the aviation community, by bringing business-to-business leads to the fore.

“Wonderboom National airport is the perfect venue to host AERO SA, as it allows for the opportunity to conduct test flights, clients can fly their own aircraft to the show, and there is ample space for exhibitors that allows easy access to trade visitors,” said von Vieregge.

AERO SA will focus on ensuring that the costs to exhibit are affordable and that aircraft on display will be charged per aircraft and not by space. AERO SA will base a lot of its strategy on the world-famous AERO Friedrichshafen show that has become one of the world’s biggest general aviation shows.
