Aéro Montréal will be holding two workshops during the Paris Air Show


Hello all,

Québec’s mission to the International Paris Air Show - Le Bourget is a week away. The mission is being organized by the Ministry of Economy and Innovation in collaboration with Aéro Montréal and the Québec Delegation in Paris.

As part of this mission, Aéro Montréal will be holding two workshops at the Québec booth to showcase various business models for supporting the growth of our SMEs. Two themes will be addressed related to Aéro Montréal’s new initiatives:

  • In connection with Accelerator 360°: “From the SME family to the consolidated group: opportunities for the growth and development of new markets.” This workshop will focus on the opportunities consolidation and internationalization offer to SMEs.
  • In connection with StartAéro 360°: The integration of disruptive technologies in the supply chain.” This workshop will discuss ways to identify innovative partners/start-ups using a business development approach and ways to ensure the rapid commercialization and return on investment of innovative projects.

On the one hand, these two workshops will demonstrate to foreign companies why it is important for the Québec aerospace cluster to support SMEs in their internationalization and innovation efforts. We firmly believe that international alliances are key to achieve these goals.

On the other hand, the various speakers at these workshops, such as Thales, Aéroprotec and Starburst, will describe to our companies in the cluster what is being done elsewhere with a view to identifying new practices and sharing these practices.

Held on an alternative basis with the Farnborough International Airshow, the Paris Air Show represents the world’s largest aerospace exhibition, with nearly 2,400 exhibitors from 25 different countries. The Paris Air Show attracts more than 300,000 visitors each year, half of whom are aerospace professionals.

Growth Working Group

On May 31st, Aéro Montréal organized the Rendez-vous Québec - New York Transportation/Aerospace event in collaboration with the North American Center of Excellence for Transportation Equipment (NAmTrans). A delegation of about 15 Québec companies were present and 80 B2B meetings were generated. This mission also made it possible to visit the Norsk Titanium plant (specializing in 3D printing) and to consider the best ways for developing collaborations with Québec to establish an additive manufacturing supply chain.


Human Resources Working Group

Last weekend, teams from Aéro Montréal and RRAM attended the Aérosalon of the École nationale d'aérotechnique. The event attracted more than 15,000 visitors and featured stunning aerial performances, including one by the Snowbirds.
