The Singapore Pavilion at the Singapore Airshow 2024 was a hive of activities, marking another successful showcase coordinated by AAIS. From 20 to 25 February 2024, the biennial Singapore Airshow was back in full swing, bringing together industry leaders and professionals from the aviation, aerospace and defence industries.

Groundwork for the Singapore Pavilion commenced well in advance, with planning and coordination in the months prior, through the Christmas and holiday season. AAIS held an exhibitor briefing in early January, setting the stage for participants. Additionally, a preparatory seminar titled “Unlock Procurement Wins” was held on 25 January, featuring speakers from Arc Blue and Shipley, covering changes in aerospace procurement and strategies for business success.

Diverse Capabilities & Next-Generation Solutions

The Singapore Pavilion featured a diverse range of small and medium enterprises (SMEs), with 27 exhibitors, more than twice the number compared to its previous iteration. Notably, over half of these exhibitors were making their debut appearance at Singapore Airshow 2024, highlighting innovations in areas such as advanced manufacturing, Artificial Intelligence, and sustainable solutions. An array of capabilities and solutions for aerospace manufacturing, MRO value-chain services, airport and ground support, defence, engineering and development, logistics, parts, tools, materials and others were on display. In particular, the Pavilion showcased the ecosystem’s strengths in:

  1. Special Processes and Surface Finishing: Featuring companies certified to provide vital surface treatment processes for OEM and MRO parts, completing the aerospace supply chain.
  2. Innovation and Technology: Exhibitors showcased cutting-edge technologies, including Counter Unmanned Aerial Systems (CUAS), Robotics, Automation, and AI, driving advancements in emerging industries.
