Why Exhibit at Farnborough 2018?

Over the next year, we are set to see both the commercial as well as defense aerospace sectors continue their ascent!


A strengthening of world economies, low oil prices, and strong passenger travel demand, has primed the commercial aerospace sector for strong growth. In addition, a return to increased military spending by the new U.S. Administration, after years of declines, will reinvigorate the defense aerospace sector.

Farnborough is situated in the UK’s south west region, which is home to 15 large aerospace corporations as well as numerous world-class supply chain companies. Boasting the 2nd largest aerospace industry in the world, the United Kingdom’s aerospace sector employs over 230,000 people at nearly 3,000 companies. The UK’s aerospace industry has grown 39% in just the last 5 years, with more record growth expected in 2017-2018. With over 1,500 exhibitors attending in 2016, The Farnborough Air Show is the runway to take your sales to the next level!


Why Exhibit in the USA Partnership Pavilion?

During the 2016 Farnborough Air Show, over 220 US companies benefitted from their inclusion in the US Partnership Pavilion.


Prime locations in three halls, access to the highly lauded Exhibitors Lounge, and invites to special events, are only some of the reasons why companies that display with Kallman return to the USA Partnership Pavilion. When you choose to exhibit within the Pavilion, you put yourself in the center of the action. Hundreds of C-Suite decision makers, members of international delegations, and governmental officials, seek out the Pavilion as their one stop shop for the best of what the American aerospace industry has to offer. In 2016, over $123 Billion in business was conducted at Farnborough, let us help you your sales to this number in 2018.

One hundred years ago, World War I ended and the Royal Air Force was formed.

Those two events of 1918 strengthened the bonds of freedom between America and our British allies, and united us as partners in a century of flight.This summer at the UK’s most prestigious aviation and aerospace events — Fairford’s Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) and the Farnborough International Airshow, Kallman Worldwide will present an expanded program of events, presentations and promotional activities celebrating the past, present and future of this proud trans-Atlantic alliance.


As the organizer of the USA Partnership Pavilion at Farnborough (now in our third decade) we invite you to consider participating with us and / or exploring other ways we might embrace this opportunity together.


In the spirit of the USA Partnership Pavilion, these are the program anchors we’ve put in place to support the American aerospace and defense industry at RIAT and Farnborough this July. If your company, organization or government agency played a part in the past century of U.S./UK partnership, and/or are dedicated to continued progress in the next, please contact me with questions or ideas about how you can participate more prominently with us. We’d be happy to include you. You can contact Bobbie Pelegano at BobbieP@Kallman.com or anyone at #TeamKallman at +1(201)251-2600 ext. “0”.  


July 12-14th 2018

Although he has been to the moon, this will be Col. Worden’s first trip to RIAT. During Col. Worden’s two-day schedule at RIAT, he will visit with industry leaders and their guests during the flying displays, hewill be featured alongside the Red Arrow engineers in the show’s “Techno Zone” showcase for student-led science initiatives, and he’ll be a guest judge in the Junior Engineer Competition. 


The day before RIAT opens, Col. Worden will visit several area high schools and a technical university to promote science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. His extraordinary lifetime accomplishments and “down-to-earth” personality make Col. Worden an ideal goodwill ambassador for the U.S. and an inspirational advocate for the aerospace workforce.   We are looking for corporate supporters who not only share “Al’s” passion for STEM, but who might also enjoy spending time with one of the 14 remaining men on earth who have been to the moon and back.

July 15th 2018, at 1:30 PM

Brookwood is an American Battlefield Memorial Commission (ABMC) managed cemetery located between Farnborough and London. On the Sunday afternoon before the opening of the Farnborough Airshow, Kallman Worldwide will lead American government, military and industry leaders, including Congressional delegates, to attend a private memorial service honoring the heroism and ultimate sacrifice of the 476 WWI U.S. servicemen and women interred here. 


Red “Buddy” poppies, long a symbol of the war, will be handed out to all participants to wear in memoriam during the show week. The poppy symbol will also be incorporated into the USA Partnership Pavilion logo on-site at Farnborough as an additional tribute to the sacrifices made by so many for the freedoms we enjoy today.

July 16th 2018, at 3:00 PM

On Monday afternoon, July 16, opening day of the Farnborough Airshow, Kallman Worldwide and the USA Partnership Pavilion will host a VIP tribute to the Royal Air Force in honor of the service’s 100th Anniversary during our traditional Opening Ceremonies and Ribbon Cutting. 


In addition to welcoming remarks from U.S. military, government and elected officials, the centerpiece of the event will be the presentation to RAF leaders of an American flag flown to the Moon and back on Apollo 15, signed by Col. Worden, who will also participate in the ceremony.


We have purposefully scheduled the proceedings in the afternoon to dovetail with Farnborough’s evening VIP reception, which for the first time will be held this year on the airshow grounds. By design, the USA Partnership Pavilion Opening Ceremony will transition into an extended afternoon networking event for U.S. and UK industry to celebrate all we have achieved together in the past, and all we can accomplish in our next century of cooperation.
