From 22-25 June 2022 at ILA Berlin, the focus of ILA 2022 will be on the future of aerospace and the key themes of innovation, new technologies and sustainability. There will be a special emphasis on climate-neutral aviation and the energy transition in the skies.
ILA 2022 will be in a hybrid format, which will include exhibitors’ trade fair stands and chalets, a wide-ranging stage programme in the four halls, a static display featuring aircraft close up, and flying displays by aircraft showing the way forward to a climate-neutral future. As Europe’s largest space show, ILA Berlin showcases innovations and new technologies that benefit people everywhere – comprehensively and beyond borders. All this will take place on the exhibition grounds at Selchow at BER Airport, and will be rounded off with events such as live streams, virtual matchmaking and virtual company presentations.
“ILA Berlin is a global magnet for the international aerospace industry,” stated Volker Thum, managing director of the German Aerospace Industries Association. “Following last year’s ILA Goes Digital, we are delighted that next year, Germany’s leading innovative trade fair for the aerospace industry will take place as an in-person event again. There will be a clear emphasis on climate protection at ILA 2022, where the industry’s trade fair will show the way forward to climate-neutral aviation.”
Martin Ecknig, CEO of Messe Berlin added: “With the opening of BER and due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the conditions surrounding ILA have changed. That especially concerns the flying displays, which naturally can only take place while abiding with the conditions of an airport operating nearby. That is why we have developed a new concept for ILA. ILA 2022 will take place as a hybrid event in order to showcase the fascination of flying and space travel to the wider public – both physically on the grounds and virtually around the world. The new ILA Berlin concept is part of our new ‘Messe Plus’ programme, which features virtual and in-person activities as well as new formats for when the pandemic is over.”
