Aviation Industry Expo 2010 Opens in Just Four Weeks

Burnsville, MN (February 11, 2010) – Cygnus Expositions, the tradeshow division of business-to-business media leader Cygnus Business Media, once again hosts their popular Aviation Industry Expo in Las Vegas. The 2010 event will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, March 16-18.

Aviation Industry Expo focuses on what matters most to the industry: Ground Support, FBO/Aviation Services and Aircraft Maintenance. THE Premier Event for Line Services and Fuel Handling Equipment, Aviation Industry Expo features new exhibiting companies like: 3M Company, All Terrain Truck & Equipment, Engine Distributors Inc., Honeywell International, Independent Dealer Accessories - IDA Truck, Lamb Fuels, Inc., NMC WOLLARD, PARTS, Inc., SPANCO, Inc., Trade & Investment Section - Polish Embassy and returning exhibitors like Charlatte of America, Eagle Tugs and Harlan Global Manufacturing, LLC - who are expanding their presence with a showcase of equipment in Demos on Demand (an area outside the expo hall, in the convention center parking lot, where attendees can “test drive” equipment).

An ever-growing segment of the industry, “green” products and services will have a designated location on the show floor in the “Going Green Pavilion” featuring exhibitors like Affordable Fuel Injection, INET Airport Systems, Mahaffey Fabric Structures, Plastic Recycling of Iowa Falls, Unitron, U.S. Applied Mechanics and Van Der Graaf.

New to the 2010 Aviation Industry Expo show floor is the New Product Showcase. This feature allows exhibitors to present their equipment or service to interested attendees in a theater setting. This intimate setting allows for question and answer and a close look at the industry’s new products.

“There is, no better way to check the pulse of the industry than by checking out Aviation Industry Expo. Ground support, aviation services and aircraft maintenance exhibitors are justifiably proud of the valuable products they have developed to advance the industry, and a New Product Showcase this year will highlight those products for attendees”, said Sue Palmer, Product Manager of Aviation Industry Expo. “The return and expansion of the Going Green Pavilion illustrates the emphasis on the environment and aviation’s commitment to it. The AMTSociety will be hosting IA Renewals and the largest Maintenance Skills Competition to date. These features and more provide positive signs that a recovery has begun!”

Aviation Industry Expo 2010 will be held March 16 – 18 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.
