The biennial Australian International Airshow and
Aerospace & Defence Exposition at Avalon comprises
two separate, but concurrent, events – the Australian
International Airshow and the Australian International
Aerospace & Defence Exposition.
They are organised respectively by Aviation Development
Australia Limited and Aerospace Australia Limited.
The Avalon show alternates with the Pacific International
Maritime Exposition, also presented biennially, during
the intervening years at Darling Harbour, Sydney by their
corporate affiliate, Maritime Australia Limited.
All are not-for-profit foundations, established to promote
the development of Australia’s industrial, manufacturing
and information/communications technology resources
in the aviation, aerospace, maritime and defence sectors.
They are members of a not-for-profit national group
headed by Aerospace Maritime and Defence Foundation
of Australia Limited.
The group’s members also pursue their respective
corporate missions by promoting careers and skills in
the aviation, aerospace, maritime and defence sectors
through a national series of showcases and forums
