European Rotors 2023 Concludes With Growth and Promise

5-Dec-2023

European Rotors 2023 closed the doors on a highly successful event late last week, spurred by Industry growth and an exciting new host city. Held in Madrid from 27-30 November, the show featured educational opportunities, career development, safety demonstrations, and presentations and displays on exciting new technologies within the vertical flight industry.

The four-day show, organised by the European Helicopter Association (EHA) and European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and produced by Helicopter Association International), saw growth over last year’s show in the number of attendees and exhibitors. Attendance at the show was over 5,400 people from over 80 countries, both figures exceeding the participation in the first two shows. The show also saw growth in the number of exhibitors (231) and the number of aircraft displayed on the show floor (23).

“We are proud that the European community recognises this is the premier rotorcraft event in the region,” says Eduardo Consejo, President, Asociación de Trabajos Aéreos y de Emergencias (ATAIRE) the Spanish Helicopter Association hosting the event. “We understand the exhibitors were extremely pleased with the quality of visitors coming to see them, including those qualified to sign agreements on the spot. One of the goals of the show is to facilitate business between companies and buyers, and the data shows that the Madrid show met that challenge.”

During the opening ceremony for European Rotors 2023, outgoing EHA Chair Christian Müller announced that European Rotors 2024 will be held in Amsterdam, Netherlands, next Nov. 04 – 07. “One of our roles at EHA is to promote our vibrant industry throughout all European regions and countries,” says Isabella Abbate, Executive Director of EHA. “Holding the shows in different locations occasionally allows us to support and highlight the dynamic ways our industry serves the people of Europe.”

Interest in the 2024 location proved high, with early, on-site booth reservations exceeding the number of commitments for booths at last year’s show. “Amsterdam has everyone excited about the possibilities of a new venue, just as what happened when we announced Madrid’s location last year,” adds Abbate. “In the future, we will continue to hold shows in Cologne, home of EASA, but providing other venues allows us to bring business engagement to new levels.”

While looking forward to the 2024 show, Abbate also praised the host country for their contributions to its success in Madrid. “Our friends at ATAIRE were instrumental in the success of this year’s show. They were truly excited to introduce their country and industry to the rest of the helicopter industry, and we are sincerely grateful for their work to make this show so successful.

“One of the reasons we chose to bring the show to Spain is because of the strength of the rotorcraft industry there,” adds Abbate. “Our assessment proved to be correct, as their contributions included a significant presence on the show floor, during Spanish Day, and throughout the show as a whole. We also salute ATAIRE for showcasing the Spanish helicopter industry so admirably.”

More information on European Rotors 2024 will be available on the event’s website soon, including details on how businesses can exhibit at the show.
