This week, ADS has a presence in four continents, exhibiting at several international exhibitions and highlighting the importance of UK exports.

The UK Aerospace, Defence, Security and Space sectors generate a significant economic benefit through exports, supported by ADS acting as a useful partner for delivering trade objectives by facilitating exposure to global customers at major international events throughout the year.

In 2015 the ADS sectors’ contribution to the UK economy included a £65bn turnover with £35bn in exports – that’s 12% of all UK goods. ADS’ presence at four international exhibitions this week outlines the strategic importance of defence and security exports and how this leads to sustaining high-skill jobs and an industrial base in the UK, as well as facilitating interoperability while strengthening security relationships with our global partners.

This week we are showcasing capabilities at four exhibitions.

In Washington D.C., ADS is managing the UK Innovation Zone at Sea Air Space (SAS). A key event for naval companies in the U.S. Defence industrial base who are looking to discuss business with the US Navy and meet with key military decision makers.

Meanwhile, South to D.C. is the Latin American Defence & Security (LAAD) exhibition which brings together Brazillian and international companies specialising in supplying equipment, services and technology to the Armed Forces, Police and Special Forces and Security Services.

In Singapore, ADS in partnership with DIT DSO, is hosting the UK Pavilion at Milipol Asia-Pacific. This event embraces the world’s leading international network of exhibitors dedicated to solutions, technologies and innovations for Homeland Security and Defence.

Finally, ADS is for the first time, showcasing capabilities at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg. UK companies are at the forefront of design and manufacture for the aircraft interior industry and this leading annual exhibition serves as a great opportunity to build contacts and increase business across this fast-growing market.
