ILA Berlin 2024 – Think Tank of the Aerospace Industry

It’s never too early to earmark your calendar for ILA Berlin 2024, taking place June 5 to 9, in Berlin-Schönefeld, Germany. As the leading marketing platform for the aerospace industry in continental Europe, the next edition of show will highlight the latest developments and innovations at the Berlin ExpoCenter Airport next to Berlin Brandenburg Willy Brandt Airport (BER). At ILA Berlin 2022, the first in-person event since 2018, some 550 exhibitors from 29 countries presented their products and services to 72,000 visitors, a third of them professional visitors. Once again, ILA 2024 will bring the world’s main industry players to Berlin and create an environment that fosters deal-making. The organizers are expecting 650 exhibitors from 35 countries and 1,500 media representatives from 40 countries. ILA 2024 will cover the following segments:

  • Aviation
  • Space
  • Defense and Support
  • Suppliers
  • Advanced Air Mobility
  • Helicopters
  • Uncrewed Aircraft Systems (UAS)
  • Future Lab
  • ILA Career Hub

Moreover, the show will be accompanied by some 100 conferences covering a wide range of topics.

Exhibitor Support Program (ESP)

The U.S. Commercial Service will be present to work with a select number of U.S. companies at ILA 2024. Through the ESP, we will be able to provide you with a variety of services, including market research, assistance in connecting with suitable business partners and other customized services, all designed to promote your exports before, during and after the show. This unique opportunity is offered for U.S. companies only. The ESP includes the following elements:

  • Focused email promotion of U.S. exhibitors to local contacts in the aerospace and defense industry (FREE)
  • On-site counseling, market research, and interpreting assistance (FREE)
  • Company and products listing on the German/European buyer-targeted ILA 2024 promotion page (FREE)

The ESP is usually flanked by an International Promotion Program (IPP), which extends the outreach to other European markets. In 2024, we plan to offer limited international support during the show due to other resource-intensive events. We will do even more in Germany and the neighboring markets.
