AIX Americas announces new buyer program
From September 10 to 12 at the return of Aircraft Interiors Expo, held this year in Los Angeles, organizers will launch its new buyer program, AIX Connect.
Qualified buyers from OEMs, airlines and tier 1 suppliers will take part in the program, designed to help key airline buyers meet exhibitors during the show. Participating exhibitors will be paired with procurement teams from seating manufacturers and OEMs such as Airbus, Bombardier, Molon Labe and Zodiac Aerospace and key airline buyers at the show to discuss business opportunities. Hand-picked VIP airline buyers will have the chance to benefit from increased networking opportunities while exhibitors will enjoy high-quality business connections matched to their product offering. Exhibiting seating manufacturers and suppliers of flooring, fasteners, air conditioning systems and lighting/LED equipment looking to build their business will be invited to participate.
Event Director Polly Magraw explained in a statement from AIX: “Networking is at the heart of our fall event – the sister exhibition to Hamburg’s spring AIX. As a truly international showcase for the aviation industry, not only will the event continue to support the evolution of the cabin interiors industry by promoting innovation, we will also facilitate business opportunities with leading airlines, OEMs and tier one suppliers.
“Our VIP guests will find a wealth of inspiring new products and essential business connections that they need to give them the competitive edge in the competitive aviation industry, while our exhibitors will be introduced to key buyers and decision-makers that they need to take their business to the next level.”
