Organized by Extenda, Junta de Andalucía, and BCI Aerospace, the aerospace branch of advanced business events, Aerospace & Defense Meetings Sevilla is the leading aerospace and defense industry event in Southern Europe, contributing to the promotion of Andalusia as a unique area of interest for international investors.

It is time for aerospace and defense professionals to meet again in person! After a digital parenthesis in 2021, which enabled the industry to meet online and gathered more than 250 companies and 500 participants coming from 20 countries, Aerospace & Defense Meetings Sevilla returns on-site on June 7-9, 2022. The only international matchmaking program for the aerospace and defense industries in Spain will be held again at the Sevilla City Office – formerly FIBES –, the exhibition and congress center of Sevilla, Spain.

Building on the strengths of last year’s event, 2022 celebrates A&DM Sevilla’s tenth anniversary.

A high-level conference program

As security and environmental requirements are evolving, it is paramount that the aerospace and defense industries must adapt to address a plethora of new challenges. Key strategies to target climate-neutral aviation by 2050 will be on the program, with two panel discussions exploring how industry can work towards a greener future – including a discussion organized by the Ellas Vuelan Alto Association.

In addition, technological advancements and enhancements will be discussed through three key topics: smart manufacturing, artificial intelligence, and MRO digitalization. Finally, experts will share their insights about advanced air mobility.

Special edition, special highlights

Since A&DM Sevilla has become the reference event in Spain for the aerospace and defense industries, the business convention also wishes to put the spotlight on the Ibero-American and Spanish cooperation. Therefore, this year, the organizers have launched a special program called “Ibero-América” to offer a dedicated place to companies coming from this region in the exhibition.

In addition, AeroLabs, the new start-up pavilion of A&DM Sevilla, will allow emerging companies to showcase their products and technologies on the main exhibition hall floor. This a unique opportunity for aerospace startups to make valuable connections with potential partners, customers, and investors.
