Why FIDAE 2020?

FIDAE is the leading aerospace and defense trade show in Latin America. 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 2018 edition hosted some 533 exhibitors from 50 nations whose products and services, including 138 aircraft on the flight line, attracted more than 120,000 professional visitors, including 525 delegations from 40 countries. Organizers anticipate more exhibitors and delegate visitors in 2020, all looking for extra insight and access to decision-makers and buyers in this dynamic and influential marketplace.

Why Exhibit in the USA & Canada Partnership Pavilions?

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 2020, 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.
