Last week, InnovationQuarter participated in the Holland Pavilion during the Paris Air Show. For the first time West Holland was promoted as one of the 5 aerospace hotspots in the Netherlands. At the fair, some 142,000 trade visitors were able to speak to over 2,380 exhibitors from 48 countries and some 140 aircraft were on display or in flight demonstration at Le Bourget airport, near Paris.

Organizer of the Dutch stand was the Netherlands Aerospace Group (NAG), a trade association that supports the Dutch Aerospace and Airport Development sector. Suppliers to the aerospace sector, like Airborne Composites from The Hague, were present in the pavilion as well as some dominant aerospace regions in The Netherlands. These regions focus predominantly on Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) of aircraft, whereas the West Holland region has a strong emphasis on Research & Development, Design & Engineering and Manufacturing.

More information is available in the brochure that was developed for the Paris Air Show, in which the 5 regions present their own distinctive strengths. If you would like to know more about the Aerospace sector in West Holland please have a look at this infographic with our 10 reasons to invest in this region.
