Explore opportunities to expand your sales in the burgeoning aviation markets in Beijing, Chengdu and Xiamen, China! Join the U.S. Commercial Service (CS) China team from September 15 to 17, 2014 as we introduce U.S. aviation firms to key decision makers in the heart of China’s aviation infrastructure boom.
China intends to build 56 new airports and expand 101 existing ones by 2015. This presents tremendous opportunities for U.S. companies to sell equipment and services from airport design and construction to air traffic management and environmental consulting. In particular, companies that provide the following equipment and services to airport development are encouraged to participate in this roadshow: airport design, green construction, energy efficiency equipment, airport security equipment, ground support and terminal related equipment, and airport management.
Road Show participants will be briefed by China’s Civil Aviation Administration on China’s aviation development. Participants will also make presentations to key regional civil aviation authorities in Chengdu and Xiamen as well as airport corporations in Beijing, Chengdu, and Xiamen on how U.S. equipment and services have been adapted by airports around the world. This is a unique chance to learn about opportunities to provide U.S. airport construction equipment and services needed to help China develop cleaner, safer, and more efficient airports.
