The show will build on its well-earned reputation to present a vital and growing international aerospace event that addresses the full scope of commercial, military and space interests. The 2016 edition hosted some 580 exhibitors from 46 nations whose products and services, including 132 aircraft on the flight line, attracted more than 120,000 professional visitors, including 600 delegations from 31 countries. Organizers anticipate more exhibitors and visitors in 2018, all looking for extra insight and access to decision-makers and buyers in this dynamic and influential marketplace

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why Exhibit in the USA Partnership Pavilion?

According to the Chile Country Commercial Guide, Chile continues to be a strong trading partner and export market for U.S. companies, largely due to its open market policies, zero tariffs, stable democratic government, solid business practices, and low corruption.

 

U.S. exports are on the rise, largely due to the Chile Free Trade Agreement, which is now well into its second decade (2004). U.S. exports reached $17.5 billion at their highest in 2013, representing a 545% increase over pre-FTA years. Additionally, in January 2015 all tariffs were phased out, making Chile a tariff free market place for U.S. made products. Kallman Worldwide’s decades of experience organizing the U.S. presence at aerospace and defense shows around the world, including FIDAE (since 1996), builds on America's advantage to help you stand out at the show. Our USA Partnership Pavilion is your on-site headquarters at Santiago: a destination for buyers, a business hub for exhibitors and a forum for all to share ideas and insights. In 2018, in addition to our suite of end-to-end show services, Pavilion exhibitors will benefit from a prominent, high-traffic hall location, access to public- and private-sector VIPs and influencers, exclusive business intelligence from industry thought-leaders and operatives and exclusive networking events. Explore our many planning resources below to learn more and sell more with Kallman at FIDAE 2018.

Civilian Aviation and MRO
FIDAE will host buyers in the civil aviation industry looking for products and services to supply the growing need for industry modernization.

Military Aviation
The FACh will have a strong presence at the show and is a main supporter of FIDAE. With Chiles strong focus on U.S. military products, the U.S. DSCA/DoD will be involved in the FMS process with the FACh, and will be a large presence in the USA Partnership Pavilion supporting U.S. exhibitors during the show.

Defense Systems
With market share in the defense and aerospace, U.S. suppliers have the advantage over competitors from other countries.

The 2016 edition hosted some 580 exhibitors from 46 nations whose products and services, including 132 aircraft on the flight line, attracted more than 120,000 professional visitors, including 600 delegations from 31 countries.

The USA Partnership Pavilion is your export advantage at FIDAE. Because it presents the highest concentration of U.S. equipment and services at the show, it's a magnet for buyers looking for American quality, innovation and partnership.

In addition to our complete suite of pre-show, on-site and post-show services, capitalize on the extra attention, activities and access we're planning for American suppliers:

  • Launch your products and raise your recognition in the Latin American aerospace, civil and commercial aviation and defense and security marketplace.
  • Meet decision-makers from U.S., Colombian and international armed forces and private aviation companies.
  • Inform visitors of your innovations in the aviation Industry. Strengthen your sales network and relationships with current clients.
  • Participate in industry briefings with representatives of local/regional utilities.
  • Work with U.S. Commercial Service specialists to outline opportunities for you in the region.
  • U.S. Embassy Office of Defense Cooperation works closely with the USA Partnership Pavilion to ensure maximum exposure to buyers at the show.
  • The USA Partnership Pavilion location is the ideal spot for any company looking to network with local giants.
