South Australian industry will have a significant presence at several upcoming events, including:   

Avalon Australian International Aerospace and Defence Exposition

Avalon 2019 – the Australian International Airshow and the Australian International Aerospace & Defence Exposition - is the largest civil and military aviation, aerospace and space trade show in the southern hemisphere and serves to promote the development of Australia's aviation, aerospace and space industries.
