Inter Airport China

The Inter airport China took place from September 14th – 16th 2016 in Beijing. More than 4.000 visitors attended the exhibition, mainly from Chinese Airports, but also from countries like Vietnam, Hong Kong, Singapore and the Philippines.


An official delegation, headed by Mr. Qin Zhanggao, Deputy Director of Chinese Civil Airport Association, opened the exhibition and showed great interest in the displays.

The German airport industry was represented by 15 companies – most of them GATE members  - on the attractive German Pavilion. German companies are well accepted and known for their quality and reliability in the development of Chinese airports.

The number and quality of the contacts - as well as the prospects for post-fair business - were considered good by almost all of the exhibitors.

Investments in additional capacity is an inevitable consequence of the market pressure – offering further opportunities for the expertise of German airport technology.

The reception, hosted by the German Embassy, happened at the famous Kempinski Hotel at the Lufthansa center of Beijing. More than fifty exhibitors, their customers and local partners attended and communicated extensively.
