A leading position on global markets and a top class international supply chain platform: these are the strengths of a territory that is the venue of “Aerospace and Defense Meetings Torino”, the only international aerospace and defense convention in Italy that will be back on 26-27 November 2019
In Italy, there is a territory where the aerospace industry expresses itself at its utmost: it is Piemonte, North-Western region that can boast an organized supply chain starring a complete pipeline of skills and qualifications, high-level manufacturing, processes and service companies, unique products and engineering know-how, inserted in a fertile environment featured by cooperation with universities, the R&D network and the educational & training system.
These are just some of the reasons why Piemonte’s role is globally recognized. It is no surprise that this acknowledgment is renovated each time it participates with its top class companies in international events and exhibitions such as the Farnborough International Airshow and the Paris Air Show and that it is the venue of Aerospace & Defense Meetings Torino, the only business convention for the aerospace industry in Italy, held every 2 years.
Its 7th edition is scheduled on 26-27 November 2019: it is a global and cross-sectorial event that offers the attendees coming from all over the world the possibility in only 2 days to build up targeted business relations, develop innovative projects, get updated on the latest products, processes, technological achievements, trends, purchasing policies and supply chain management of the international Primes. For the key players, it is a unique occasion to optimize time in researching new suppliers, innovations and products. Not a standard event but a platform for personalized access to business opportunities.
Since its first edition in 2008, "Aerospace & Defense Meetings Torino" has been recording remarkable figures, consolidating Piemonte and its regional supply chain as a quality business destination for foreign investments and as the ultimate business platform for the aerospace industry.
