2019 PARIS AIRSHOW Sponsorship and Exhibitor Opportunities Available

“KAIC and Eleveate Logos Graphic 


The Paris Airshow is the biggest and oldest airshow in the world, attracting manufacturers and military forces from around the globe to display their aircraft and products.  In 2017, the Paris Airshow hosted 140 aircraft, over 2,000 companies, a multitude of organizations from 48 countries host exhibits and over 300,000 visitors walked through the exhibit hall. 

Next June, Paris will host its fifty-third air show, and Kentucky will be there! The Kentucky Aerospace Industry Consortium (KAIC) and the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development want you to join us in sponsoring a booth to showcase Kentucky’s prowess and growth in the aerospace industry. By being a sponsor, you will join us as we lead a delegation to France to show-off all Kentucky has to offer in the aerospace arena.  We will be joined by top officials from major companies in Kentucky, other economic development organizations, universities and the Governor’s office.

This is an excellent opportunity for you to promote your organization to an international audience and network with potential strategic partners in both the public and private sector around aerospace.  As a Sponsor you will be part of Kentucky’s official delegation, have the opportunity to attend a pre-departure airshow briefing and networking events, receive tickets to the airshow, and have access to our hotel room block. Additionally, you have the option of having your logo on all Kentucky’s marketing material, logo on at the brief, and exhibit space if so desired.  Most importantly, you will help us promote Kentucky and all it has to offer to potential aerospace companies looking to relocate or grow their companies in our Commonwealth.

Again, this is an excellent opportunity to gain international exposure for your organization and for Kentucky, while experiencing one of the best airshows in the world. Join us and help us take Kentucky’s industry to the skies!

Don't miss this chance! Spots are limited and will go quickly. Contact us today!
