Airport experts from all over the world to touch down in Munich

FMG with own booth at Inter Airport Europe 2009

This October the latest developments in the international airport industry will once again take center stage in Munich. The 17th edition of Inter Airport Europe, the world’s leading trade fair for airport equipment, technology and services, is scheduled to take place in the Bavarian capital from Tuesday, October 6 to Friday, October 9, 2009. This year, however, the venue is new: after five successful years at Munich Airport, heavy demand for hangar facilities by airlines made space at the airport too scarce to host this major event. This year's Inter Airport is therefore being held for the first time at the Messe München International trade fair facility.

Munich Airport's CEO Michael Kerkloh is delighted that "this leading event for our industry has chosen to remain in Munich." He added, "Innovations are the driving force for every economic sector, particularly in times of crisis. I am therefore confident that this trade fair, which serves as a valuable information and contact exchange, will meet with an enormous response again this year."

Inter Airport is regarded as the key event for producers of airport equipment to show off their latest developments. Since moving to Munich it has enjoyed enormous success. Two years ago the total of 13,000 attendees from 128 countries set a new record. The organizer of Inter Airport, Mack Brooks Exhibitions, has announced that 550 exhibitors from 30 different countries will be presenting their leading-edge airport technologies this year in an even larger exhibition space.

Andreas von Puttkamer, who heads Munich Airport's aviation divisions, will open the trade fair with a welcoming address. Munich Airport is taking part in the event with a 50 square meter booth (Hall B5, booth 818). Experts from Munich Airport will use slides and computer presentations to demonstrate technologies such as the computer-controlled distribution system in the traffic division. The Munich Airport booth will also present information on international projects where Munich Airport plays a consulting role.

Inter Airport Europe 2009 will be open from Tuesday to Thursday (October 6–8) daily between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and on Friday, October 9th between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. For visitors arriving at the airport by S-Bahn or by air, a regular shuttle bus service will operate between the airport and Neue Messe München.
