Hamburg flying flag at Apex Expo - 3,000 aviation experts expected

Hamburg Aviation and Hamburg Invest are promoting Hamburg as a centre of aviation at the Apex Expo, which opens its doors Monday in Los Angeles until September 12, 2019. More than 3,000 industry experts including representatives of aviation suppliers are meeting at the key aviation fair to check out the latest trends in aviation and to forge key contacts.

Growth in Hamburg’s aviation sector

“The Apex Expo is an important date in the trade fair calendar for Hamburg Aviation. We traditionally start the application phase for the Crystal Cabin Award here and together with Hamburg Invest, we will hold talks with aviation suppliers who wish to expand to Europe,” said Dr. Franz Josef Kirschfink, Managing Director of Hamburg Aviation. “During the run-up to the fair, we identified a number of companies that want to expand their business and are a good match for Hamburg,” said Dr. Rolf Strittmatter, Managing Director of Hamburg Invest. “It is now a matter of convincing them with Hamburg Aviation of the business opportunities in Hamburg”, he added.

Aviation industry on expansion course

Hamburg’s aviation industry is currently on an expansion course. Airbus has hired 1,000 employees since last June and Lufthansa Technic has increased its workforce in the Hanseatic city by around 1,000 to around 8,800.
