This year’s Paris Air Show was the 51st to take place - the event is over a hundred years old, making it the longest running aerospace show. The event was open from 15th to 21st of June; the first four days were reserved for trade visitors, followed by three days that were open to the general public. There were 130 aircraft including Falcon8X, Dassualt Aviation’s latest business jet which was in fact only shown to the public for the first time at the show. The Airbus A350 and A400M were also shown for the first time at the show.
Shaw & Underwood’s client, Aero Metals Alliance (AMA) were exhibiting at the show. We were tasked with producing all of the display graphics, including 19 computer generated images, which were framed and displayed throughout AMA’s stand and chalet. A selection of the CGIs were also used to produce large-format wall graphics. In addition, we handled all of the pre-show publicity including designated advertisements for the trade press.
