Mandarins of the global aerospace industry are expected to attend the International Aerospace Exposition in Berlin from 5 to 9 June this year.

At ILA 2024, industry representatives, policymakers, armed forces and academia will deliberate current challenges and opportunities around all branches of the aerospace sector.

This year’s ILA which kicks off under the motto #PioneeringAerospace  will offer exhibitors from all over the world an opportunity to showcase  their latest developments, innovative solutions, and research projects
centred around three key topics, namely, Innovation, New Technologies and Sustainability.

An interesting and eye catching aspect of ILA is that it features the entire value chain and every tier of the aerospace industry, from Aviation, Space and Defence & Support, to Advanced Air Mobility and the Supplier sector.

Messe Berlin and their partner organizers of the ILA are also conscious of the effects of climate on the environment hence the guiding question on how the transformation of civil aviation to climate neutrality can be achieved.

Among the highlights at ILA Berlin 2024 is the unique Space Pavilion which showcases the vital contribution of space travel for life on Earth – from climate protection and digitalisation to security and mobility.
