Inter airport Europe 2005: the 15th biennial inter airport europe event will take place at Munich Airport in October. Airports International previews Europe's premier airport equipment and services exhibition.

For those who have an interest in airport equipment, technology and services, the biennial inter airport europe (iae) has long been a 'must attend' event. Originally held at Frankfurt some 30 years ago, the exhibition quickly outgrew the space then available, resulting in a move to Munich. Since then it has gone from strength to strength, and now attracts in the region of 500 exhibitors.

iae has become a truly international meeting place for buyers, vendors, consultants and system integrators from all sectors of the airport, airline and ground service industries.

During the last event, in 2003, 498 companies exhibited their wares over the four days, reaching approximately 11,500 visitors. Whether you attend as an exhibitor or a visitor, this premiere showcase provides the opportunity to mingle with a broad range of top industry professionals.

The Basics--Where?

The show is located a few hundred metres from the main terminal, in and around a modern, spacious hangar. This has been transformed into two indoor areas--Hall 4A and Hangar 4--connected by the large Outdoor Arena. Restaurants, meeting rooms, an executive shuttle bus service, ample car parking and a wide choice of hotel accommodation in the vicinity of the airport are just some of the user-friendly facilities that await exhibitors and visitors.
