ap&m Europe gathers every level of the airline supply chain, allowing you to meet a unique cross section of the industry over three days.

Exhibitors fall into categories such as: avionics, cabin interiors, engine and components, fuels/lubricants, leasing, lighting, MRO service providers, OEMs, painting/livery, parts manufacturers & distributors, recruitment, supply chain & logistics, test equipment/tooling and training.

We also have a large number of airlines, either as part of our Meet the Buyers or as regular visitors, who attend to meet new and existing suppliers.

Meet the Buyers is our premier networking event taking place in a dedicated area within the exhibition hall on Wednesday 5 June 2019. Meet the Buyers provides a platform for each exhibitor to meet with airline and MRO buyers, face to face, in pre-arranged 10 minute meetings slots. More information can be found here.

How do I participate?

To participate you must be a VIP Exhibitor (each exhibitor has a number of VIP badges depending on size of booth) or a qualified buyer.

How do I book a meeting at Meet the Buyers?​

Exhibitors are sent a login closer to the show to our bespoke meeting booking system enabling them to pick meetings with their preferred buyers on the wave release dates. Further information on this can be found in the exhibitor manual.

Who are the buyers?

We work hard to ensure we secure high value buyers: procurement and purchasing executives from airlines, MROs, OEMs and leasing companies, looking to meet suppliers to discuss current and future opportunities. We'll have around 100 international buyers ready and waiting on Wednesday 5 June 2019.
