Apply by 7 April 2023



The Department for Business & Trade (DBT) and UK Trade Association ADS, are giving you the opportunity to meet with key manufacturers in the industry. 

If you are exhibiting at or attending the Paris Air Show (PAS) between 19-21 June 2023, you can apply to meet leading international manufacturers during 1-1 discovery tour sessions.


UK businesses like you, within the aerospace and space supply chains, will have the opportunity to explain and showcase your innovative technologies, demonstrating the depth and breadth of UK-based capabilities.


These tours were successfully conducted at the 2022 Farnborough Air show, where international manufacturers/customers included Airbus and Boeing.


International manufacturers/customers for the PAS are still to be confirmed.


Whatever the size of your business, you can apply to join the discovery tours if you fall into any of these four categories:

  1. UK businesses that have secured their own stand directly with PAS organisers
  2. UK based subsidiaries of multi-nationals who have their own stand
  3. UK businesses (often SMEs) exhibiting with a trade association
  4. Representatives of UK suppliers visiting the PAS (not exhibiting/ without a stand)
