The 2018 Singapore Airshow took place at the Changi Exhibition Centre, Singapore from the 6th to 11th of February 2018 and the trade days were from the 6th to 8th of February 2018. The Singapore Airshow is the biggest airshow in Asia and attracts high-level government and military delegations, as well as senior corporate executives from around the world.
The Singapore Airshow focuses on military, general aviation and commercial aviation; making it the ideal event for UMW Development to engage with major global aerospace companies especially those with interest to explore the ASEAN market.
It’s high-level conference and forums also offered a platform for UMW Development to gather information on the global aerospace market, especially the strategies moving forward by major aerospace players like Airbus and Boeing which will have a significant impact on the global supply chain. With the increase in demand, suppliers are starting to move closer to their clients. Malaysia could possibly be the preferred site given its strategic location in the ASEAN region and is cost effective.
