Aviatex 2018 is an annual aviation trade show.
Aviatex is a professionally produced, commercial trade show aimed squarely at the light sport, recreational and general aviation markets, a market that makes up almost half of the aircraft operating in Australia.
Aviatex will be held in conjunction with Wings Over Illawarra 2018, which is fast becoming a premier event on the Aviation enthusiast's calendar, attracting over 30,000 visitors in 2017, with organisers predicting an increase in visitors in 2018. Aviatex will provide the trade component to Wings Over Illawarra and will offer a fantastic opportunity for businesses to showcase their products and services to a wide audience.
The Trade Show and Air Show are hosted at the picturesque Illawarra Regional Airport, approximately 20 kilometres south of Wollongong, and just 80 kilometres south of Sydney.
Being located on Sydney's doorstep and within easy reach of Canberra it will provide a magnificent opportunity for aviation businesses in Australia to showcase and network within this dynamic industry and to expose a whole new audience to affordable flying possibilities.
Aviatex will provide the perfect occasion to view and compare the latest products, equipment and services for the Aviation Industry from many renowned companies.
Recreational aviation provides a wide range of activity options and an economical way to take part in aviation. It also offers a proving ground for new aviation concepts and technology.
In addition to showcasing products and services Aviatex will feature briefings, seminars, information sessions and workshops from Government authorities, industry representatives and private enterprise.
