The Farnborough International Board of Directors has announced the cancellation of the Farnborough International Airshow 2020 which was due to take place from July 20-24.
A statement on behalf of the board read: “After very careful consideration, the unprecedented impact of the global Coronavirus pandemic has forced this decision in the interests of the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors, contractors and staff.”
“This decision was reached taking into consideration several major factors surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19, all of which we have concluded, make it is impossible for us to create and host the Airshow this July.”
FIA 2022 will be “better than ever”
The statement added: “We understand this news will be an incredible disappointment to all across the international aerospace industry, not to mention our important exhibitors, suppliers and visitors. We at Farnborough International share your disappointment that we are unable to present the Airshow as planned, but rest assured, we are determined to continue to work together and will ensure the Farnborough International Airshow returns in 2022 better than ever.”
Staff working on updates during unprecedented market conditions
The Airshow team will be speaking to affected stakeholders on an individual basis but, as a small team, patience is requested while event staff navigate the unprecedented market conditions caused by the coronavirus outbreak.
Exhibitors and official suppliers to the event have already been contacted by the organisers via email and should refer to the guidance in the first instance. They can also contact their account manager if they require.
