The Helicopter Show 2012 moves location

The Helicopter Show Ltd is pleased to announce its move to a new, purpose-built international exhibition venue with unparalleled exhibit, flying and hospitality facilities.

When we first began planning The Helicopter Show (THS 12), Farnborough’s long association with the aerospace industry made it appear an obvious venue. However, after consulting with our customers and our audience, we concluded that to do business, fly craft and entertain, and in a venue where we could establish our own marque, we needed to look again.

The Silverstone Wing, a new, purpose-built international exhibition venue in the middle of England, has so excited and inspired us that we have decided that it is the perfect, permanent venue for The Helicopter Show.

About The Helicopter Show
The Helicopter Show is the only comprehensive exhibition of both military and commercial suppliers. Our audience will comprise helicopter professionals & senior decision makers from commercial as well as defence & security sectors together with High Net Worth Individuals; it is not open to the general public.

There will be many networking opportunities over the course of the two-day event, ranging from pre-arranged meetings to strategic, technical and commercial presentations at The Helicopter Forum Series. With an exciting line up of craft and capabilities, ample space for presentations and B2B meetings, plus static line displays and unparalleled flying facilities alongside the exhibition halls, The Helicopter Show will be a compelling visit for the international military and civil rotorcraft community.

About the venue
Everyone knows Silverstone is a world-class brand, the home of British motor racing and host to some of the most prestigious events attended by over 800,000 motorsport fans every year. Less well known until now is the Silverstone Wing, just opened earlier this summer. Situated in the heart of the Grand Prix Circuit, it is a 3-storey high and 390m long, high-ceilinged exhibition centre costing £27million, integrating indoor & outdoor exhibition space and hospitality suites, conference, press room, restaurants with permanent kitchens, permanent loos and a tiered conference theatre…

95% of the UK’s privately-owned helicopters are within 2-hours flying time of Silverstone, and it holds the world record for the world’s busiest heliport – during the 1999 British Grand Prix there were 4,200 movements in a single day.

Silverstone is centrally located between London and Birmingham in the heart of motorsport valley and with easy links to all major transport links. Heathrow is 70 miles away and road access is exceptionally easy along the A43 dual carriageway from either the M40 or M1. There are 100 hotels locally and in the Oxford, Milton Keynes and Northampton triangle of which Silverstone is the centre.

A light and airy, air-conditioned Wi-Fi venue and an inspiring home for the helicopter community to make its own. And for pilots – no take-off and landing fees!
