Aviation Africa Summit and Exhibition nominated for three awards

Posted 11 September 2019 · Add Comment

Aviation Africa is nominated in three categories for "Best International Event", "Indy Organiser Team of the Year" and "Best Show Feature" - for the Silent Conference.

 

The awards scheme, organised by Exhibition News, is dedicated to recognising the achievements of independent organiser shows, teams and individuals. The judging panel is made up of leading experts from the event industry including representatives from venues, suppliers and independent event organisers.

Aviation Africa is nominated for "Best International Event" for the 2019 event held in Kigali, Rwanda in February this year. The event grew overall by 35% and 92% of attendees rated the event Good/Excellent, with 93% of exhibitors saying they would exhibit again.

By working as one team Times Aerospace along with Aerocomm and Access Group has built a world-beating team who are experienced, respected and able to launch and run events in parts of the world that most other aviation event organisers would never dare to tread. The reason they have been nominated for "Indy Organiser Team of the Year".

The "Best Show Feature" nomination was for the introduction of a silent conference at the 2019 event, which combined the exhibition and conference in one hall where all delegates and speakers listened via headphones so the business in the exhibition hall was not disturbed. "The silent conference was a great idea because business continued as usual at the exhibitions and no one was disrupted. Genius idea!" - Aviation Africa Delegate.

Mark Brown, director of Times Aerospace Events said "We are really delighted to be nominated in the EN Indy Awards 2019, this is the 4th Aviation Africa event we have organised as a team and we have all put in a lot of time, experience and expertise to get the event to this stage and are rightly proud of how far it has progressed in a relatively short time.”
