VII Aerospace & Defense Meetings-ADM 2024

The VII Aerospace & Defense Meetings-ADM 2024 is starting the week of its celebration with large participation figures, registering 28 countries represented and more than 8,000 business meetings arranged between international and national companies and contractors. In this way, the event consolidates its figure as a reference event for the aerospace industry in Spain and the one with the most participation in southern Europe.

Specifically, more than 1,000 professionals have already registered, from 28 countries, 11% more than the participants planned for the 2022 edition. In addition, more than 8,000 face-to-face business meetings have been arranged, which will take place under the B2B format on May 15 and 16.

In addition to the large quantitative participation, due to the volume of business they generate, the qualitative participation of large global manufacturers such as Airbus, Boeing, Embraer and Bombardier stands out. Likewise, 70% of the large contractors participating in the event are foreigners, which brings international business even closer to the Andalusian cluster.

The event is organized by the Regional Ministry of Economy, Finance and European Funds, through Andalucía TRADE, and by the company BCI Aerospace, specialist in international meetings in the sector. Likewise, it has the main manufacturers of the European, Spanish and Andalusian industry: Airbus, the largest European manufacturer in the sector, as the main partner of the event and with Aciturri, as a platinum sponsor; Accenture, Aernnova, Aertec, Capgemini, Gazc, Grupo Sevilla Control, Pilatus, Sofitec and Utingal, as gold sponsors; and Accuris and Akkodis España as silver sponsors.

Likewise, ADM Sevilla has the collaboration of the rest of the agents of the Spanish industry, through Tedae (Spanish Association of Technology, Defense, Aeronautics and Space Companies), and the Andalusian industry, with Andalucía Aerospace (Andalusian aerospace cluster),  CATEC-Advanced Center for Aerospace Technologies, and the Spanish Aerospace Agency (AEE).

The event, which occupies 7,000 meters and has more than 200 booths, is key to promoting a strategic industry in Spain, of which Andalusia was the second community in exports in 2023, with 2,094 million euros; and that in the first two months of 2024 it has reached 642 million, tripling its data, with almost half of the national bill (42%). This growth is the highest among the top 10 most exporting communities; and Andalusia is, therefore, the one that contributes the highest percentage to the growth of Spain, with +39%. Likewise, the region has grown so far in 2024 on all four continents.

The event will bring together the main global contractors and leading firms from across the sector’s supply chain, with the common objective of exploring new business opportunities. Thanks to this capacity of international attraction and its role as a driving force of the industry, ADM Seville has reached its 12th anniversary confirmed as the reference business event for the aerospace and defense sector of Spain in the civil, military and space branches, and the most important in southern Europe.
