In conjunction with their long term economic growth, the nations of the Asia Pacific region are undergoing dramatic technological development.

They are exhibiting high levels of demand for aviation products and services, aerospace technology and defence equipment.

Australia is strategically positioned within the Asia Pacific region. The world’s largest island continent, Australia bridges the Pacific and Indian Oceans. A leading and influential country within the Asia Pacific region, Australia is a major trading nation with a highly developed and technologically advanced economy.

It has a well-deserved reputation within the region for technological leadership in civil and military aviation.

Australia’s national airline, Qantas, is an aviation icon and the world’s second oldest airline. Its vast distances make Australia a large user of regional and business aviation. Light aircraft are widely operated in Australia and airsport is a rapidly growing recreational activity.

The Australian Defence Force is amongst the most respected and influential in the region. In particular, the Royal Australian Air Force has strong ties with the air forces of the Asia Pacific. The Australian Defence Force is frequently involved in joint training exercises and the exchange of personnel. Its acquisition decisions, assessments and technology are noted throughout the region.

The Australian Defence Force is embarking on a period of significant growth and modernisation, with AUD$100 billion of spending planned for equipment and services over the next decade.

Other defence forces in the Asia Pacific region are pursuing similar upgrades, with many acquiring or seeking to acquire new aircraft, defence equipment and supporting systems.

Airline passenger traffic within, and to and from, the Asia Pacific region is growing at a rapid rate.

Regional, business and rotary wing aviation are expanding. The demand for flight training is increasing and there is growing interest in airsport and recreational flying.

Avalon in 2009 will be a valuable opportunity for decision-makers to be informed and for exhibitors to connect with their customers.

The Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition is the essential aviation, aerospace and defence event for the Asia Pacific.

Avalon means business!
