Trade visitor registration for the fast approaching Africa Aerospace and Defence (AAD) Exhibition and Air show is now open. AAD 2016 takes place from 14th -18th September 2016 at the Air Force Base Waterkloof, Pretoria.  

Prospective visitors are invited to visit the website to apply. The organisers encourage all visitors to register as early as possible to avoid disappointment, as great numbers are expected at this year’s show. Furthermore, no person will be permitted to enter the venue without a valid access badge. The five-day event will commence with three days of business to business engagements, while the general public will be allowed to purchase tickets for the weekend. 

It is through events like AAD Expo that established defence companies shape the future of the industry, and participate in a platform for cross pollination of innovation and new Defence technologies.
