This spring PennWell, the parent company of Military & Aerospace Electronics magazine, purchased Avionics Expo Limited, a U.K. company which owns and produces the successful Avionics conference and exhibition. The show's founder, Adrian Broadbent, was retained as event director.

Established in 2003 as an annual event, Avionics includes a trade exhibition, two-day conference program, workshops, and technology demos serving more than 1,400 attendees.

Reviews of the 2008 program were strong.

"Avionics 08 was the event this year to discuss and learn about new challenges in Avionic," says Chistina Poschmann of Wind River in Alameda, Calif. "The topics presented in the conference, workshops, and masterclasses attracted the right audience and we are very pleased with the high quality meetings we had. We will definitely return next year!."

The 2008 event "was the third time Alter Technology UK has exhibited" at the Avionics conference, says Lloyd Francis, of Alter Technology Group UK. "The new venue and streamed conferences led to a doubling of the number of attendees, whom traveled from all over Europe and beyond. The caliber of the delegates was excellent. A worthy event and we are looking forward to Avionics 2009."

PennWell also announced the first global expansion of the Avionics exposition with Avionics U.S.A., scheduled to run concurrently with the Military & Aerospace Electronics Forum in San Diego at the San Diego convention center on June 1 and 2, 2009. The new event offers two separate conferences and a shared exhibit floor. This shared environment will allow the senior level attendees to walk the entire show floor and mingle with the executives attending each event. Avionics U.S.A. conference content will be modeled after the Amsterdam event

In addition to the Amsterdam conference, there will be an exhibition that is a collaborative environment conducive to productive discussions, exchanging ideas, meeting new business partners, and reconnecting with current customers.
