The aerospace industry's oldest trade event

ILA occupies a specific place in the history of aviation in Germany and Europe because it has existed since the dawn of aviation. The very first edition took place in 1909 and has only grown since these humble beginnings and has broken the news for the biggest innovations in aviation for over a century. It is no surprise to say that the product portfolio extends to space technology, defence technology, power units, engines, components, advanced materials, electronic systems, maintenance. That is the full value chain, but we also cannot forget the remarkable line-up of aircraft. Visitors can walk among two hundred machines, which span helicopters, civil and military unmanned aircraft systems, and commercial air transport.

ILA Berlin Air Show 2026

ILA's 2026 edition will occur as a live event between 10.06.2026 and 14.06.2026. The Berlin Brandenburg International Airport will serve as the hosting location for the live air show.

ILA takes the stage in Berlin every two years and editions tend to fall on even years. Each edition takes place somewhere around spring (most often in May) and runs for a total of five days. The aviation exhibition is the brainchild of Messe Berlin with generous support from BDLI, which is one of Germany’s biggest associations for the aviation industry. Proceedings naturally take place at the Berlin Expo Centre Airport and working hours are from 10:00 am until 18:00 pm but be sure to check for any planned changes for the programming. This location of Messe Berlin neighbours the Berlin International Airport, which means that there are multiple transportation options. You can directly come after landing at the airport, drive there or take any of the public transport lines.

“ILA gives us a great opportunity to discuss both problems and challenges ahead of us and the solutions that we have to offer,” Alastair McIntosh, Managing Director at Rolls-Royce Deutschland.

“ILA is where we as Thales meet our customers, our civil customers as well as military customers and political stakeholders,” Dr. Christoph Hoppe, CEO, Thales Deutschland.

“ILA is an excellent opportunity for us to address all our products and all our capabilities to the relevant target groups,” Rainer von Borstel, CEO, Diehl Aviation.

“The responsibility to bring people together, to fulfil their dream of discovering the world and for sustainability,” Dr. Johannes Bussmann, CEO, LH Technik.

ILA bridges the professional interest in the aviation business with the enthusiasm of the public for all planes and flying crafts together, which has resulted in a steady growth in attendance. Currently, editions are frequented by some 180,000 international visitors, which comes to see the products, planes, and equipment displayed by some 1110 international exhibitors. This is all good for business as you get to set up your name with the public while conducting business at the highest level. If we are to look a little deeper into the professional background of visitors, we see a detailed picture consisting of military and ministry representation, experts and suppliers, and senior management and key stakeholders. That alone is worth your participation as an exhibitor.

ILA 2022 

Between June 22nd and June 26th, 2022, the live event ILA 2022 was held. It took place without Covid-19 safety precautions in place. The country's removal of the relevant domestic regulations in April 2022 resulted in the venue, BER Airport in Germany, removing such measures. The federal government was well-represented at the event, and trade visitors were quite interested in new mobility and security. 72,000 trade visitors and 550 exhibitors altogether were present at ILA 2022.

ILA 2024

The 2024 edition of ILA took place as a live trade fair between 05.06.2024 and 09.06.2024 in BER Airport. It featured around 95 000 participants from approximately 60 countries through close to 200 delegations. Among them were nearly 350 speakers and up to 600 exhibitors from approximately 31 nations.
