About AAD
AAD Africa Aerospace and Defence Exhibition Previous Edition

Staged biennially, the AAD exhibition remains Africa's premier event to showcase leading edge commercial and general aviation related technologies and products together with defense-related landward, maritime and aerospace platforms and systems.

Africa’s largest aerospace, defence, and security exhibition moved to what many have called the world’s most beautiful city. Africa Aerospace & Defence – AAD 2008– was held in Cape Town from 17-21 September 2008. Air Force Base Ysterplaat, against the backdrop of Table Mountain, provided the setting for the only exposition of its sort in Africa and featured more than 400 exhibitors from at least 25 countries. All of the major suppliers of civil and military aerospace, defence, and security equipment to the South African government was represented in Cape Town by top ranking executives.
It’s an innovative and expanded showcase for local, regional and global exhibitors who supply civil, military and security products, systems, components and services to customers in Africa and around the world.

AAD 2008 featured three trade days and two public days. The previous show, AAD 2006 in Cape Town, drew more than 22 000 professional trade visitors from Africa and beyond. The public days with the air show featuring some of the world’s most advanced aircraft drew 90 000 spectators in 2006.

This year’s show also coincides with the South African government’s strategy for strengthening, growing and forging worldwide alliances for its domestic aerospace, air transport, maritime, land systems, security and space industries.

Exhibitors from industrialised countries as well as the emerging markets ensured an unparalleled diversity of product systems and a vast array of newly developed technologies. AAD 2008 provided a unique opportunity for industry and the media to get to grips with the opportunities unfolding on the African continent, particularly as South African industry joins hands with its international partners. By taking part in AAD 2008, trade visitors and the media had the unique opportunity to get in on the ground level, experiencing and participating in the renaissance of the African aerospace and defence industry.

AAD 2010 International Africa Aerospace and Defence Exhibition

Africa Aerospace and Defence (AAD) is a premier event on the international aviation and defence calendar. As a showcase for civil and military aviation, maritime and land-based defence technologies, AAD is the largest exhibition of its kind in Africa. With the world-class infrastructure of South Africa, AAD is uniquely positioned for exhibiting companies to market their products and services to the entire continent and beyond.

Introduction to Africa Aerospace and Defence 2010 (AAD2010)
Following on the successful hosting of the show in Cape Town, AAD2010 returns to Air Force Base Ysterplaat from 21 to 25 September 2010. As always, AAD2010 runs over three trade days followed by two days open to the general public. This allows for networking opportunities and face-to-face business interaction. AAD2010 affords exhibitors ample access to official delegations and decision makers. Moreover, AAD2010 in Cape Town provides the ideal hub from which to pursue a range of interests, including sporting activities and visits to South Africa´s renowned tourist attractions.

Exhibition Profile
Covering the full spectrum of leading edge aviation products and defence-related technologies, AAD2010 will highlight contemporary developments in these areas. Niche sectors incorporated into AAD2010 cover commercial and general aviation, homeland security (aviation, maritime and land-based), humanitarian relief and disaster management, freight and forwarding services, as well as search and rescue.

Visitor Profile
Building on the success of previous exhibitions, AAD2010 is set to attract significant numbers of participants. Almost 80 officially invited foreign delegations attended AAD2008, including 20 defence ministers, many from African countries. Some 13000 trade visitors provided the 400 exhibitors from 35 countries with the opportunity to market their products to the African continent. AAD2010 is expected to attract even greater numbers of diplomats, entrepreneurs and representatives of local and national governments who seek potential trade opportunities and future business collaboration.

A comprehensive flying programme, with slots for demonstration flights, enables aerospace companies to demonstrate their products to potential clients. A dynamic vehicle track allows for the demonstration of land-based products, while the close proximity of the Cape Town harbour and the V&A Waterfront offer berthing of ships and other maritime exhibits.

Government Support
The South African government considers Africa Aerospace & Defence a national asset which it fully supports through the national departments of Trade and Industry, Defence, Transport and Science and Technology.
