Aerosolutions 2009

The CEB (Congrès et Expositions de Bordeaux) and the BCI (Business Convention International) co-organize AEROSOLUTIONS, a major International Business Convention for the ASD sector (Aeronautics, Space and Defense) on the 1st and 2nd of December 2009 at the Bordeaux Congress Center. Supported by the European Union and the local authorities (such as the Regional Council of Aquitaine, the General Council of the Gironde and the Urban Community of Bordeaux) this high-level business convention helps indentify business and technology opportunities for prime manufacturers, OEM's and ASD suppliers and optimizes professional encounters.

Aquitaine is the cradle of large industrial groups such as EADS, THALES or DASSAULT plus around 600 SMEs/SMIs related to ASD activities, the region counts 38.500 jobs for a 3.8 billion euro turnover in this sector. The Midi-Pyrénées and Aquitaine form AEROSPACE VALLEY which ranks it at 1st place for European Aeronautics, Space and Defense and constitutes the 1st exportation pole of France.

To date, Over 70 foreign companies have already confirmed their participation in AEROSOLUTIONS. Five months before the event, the participation confirmations recorded have already exceeded the figures from 2007. There seems to be a tendency towards strong European mobilization for example a German delegation of 10 companies and a British representation of 15 to 20 companies. The return of three Spanish clusters (including Madrid and Aragon) is to be noted for this 5th edition. And major export shall be well represented, amongst others, by the presence of Russia and Canada.

This enlargement does not only allow an important platform for representing regional aeronautic skills but it also opens up to a new level of development by valuing Spatial and Defense Sectors where technical investments are at an increase. AEROSOLUTIONS adapts to the current needs of market diversification with all the more validity owing to the fact that in Aquitaine, 45 % of the aeronautical and spatial orders are made in establishments that are very dependent of the military sector (investigation source: NATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR STATISTICS AND ECONOMIC STUDIES 2008)
The branching out to the Defense sector (air, naval and land) is an opportunity to recruit prime manufacturers.

The meetings and exchanges are in three categories: a business convention with pre-booked appointments, plenary conferences targeting the current market issues and technical workshops animated stimulated by the Contractors. A rich program for buyers who will have an opportunity to meet the registered subcontractors from Aquitaine, from France and from foreign countries.
