AVALON 2021 airshow dates announced

The dates for the next iteration of the Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition has officially been set.

The 2021 Avalon Airshow has been set for 23 to 28 February 2021, with event organisers expecting attendance records to be broken, as the Royal Australian Air Force celebrates its centenary.


"As an international aerospace industry exposition, Avalon 2019 was a record‐breaker in both exhibitor numbers and trade-day attendances, with a host of major industry announcements and significant international participation from a total of 37 countries,” said CEO Ian Honnery.

“Avalon 2021 will be the largest single event in the Air Force 2021 Centenary calendar and will come just three months after the November 2020 Centenary of Qantas."

Avalon 2019 attracted 698 participating companies, 161 official industry and government delegations and nearly 40,000 visitors across the industry days, Tuesday, 26 February to Thursday, 28 February, a growth of 14.5 per cent from 2017.

“Avalon 2021 will be a celebration of a hundred years of Australian innovation and leadership in military and civil aviation and aerospace. That combination of civil and defence is already proving a magnet for industry, with both Australian and international companies committing to the event to display their contributions to this world-class Australian aviation heritage," Honnery said.



“More than ever, Avalon 2021 will showcase Australian industry to the world, by bringing the world to Australia.” 

The industry-only trade exposition will run from Tuesday, 23 February to Friday, 26 February, with public airshow and entertainment days from Friday, 26 February to Sunday, 28 February.
