Messe Friedrichshafen, the global show for general aviation, has set its sights on a new destination....South Africa.

 

Messe Frankfurt South Africa, in cooperation with Messe Friedrichshafen, will put on the first Aero South Africa at the Woonderboom Airfield in Pretoria, South Africa from July 4 to 6, 2019.

"The collaboration with Messe Frankfurt South Africa underscores the great significance that the AERO Friedrichshafen brand enjoys around the world. In addition, the Messe Frankfurt is well present in South Africa to favorably position the Aero brand there,” said Klaus Wellmann, CEO of Messe Friedrichshafen.

He added: “For Roland Bosch, Head of Aero, Messe Frankfurt is the ideal partner for Messe Friedrichshafen in South Africa, as its South African subsidiary, based in Johannesburg, possesses important local expertise thanks to its many events, as well as operational resources.

Konstantin von Vieregge, CEO of Messe Frankfurt South Africa, added: "The Aero South Africa perfectly rounds out our South African portfolio, as we already offer the largest automotive and boating trade shows in the country and, with this new aviation trade show, will thus cover all three elements. We are looking forward to close cooperation with the Messe Friedrichshafen team.”
