The Avalon show has a proven track record over ten consecutive events.
Held every two years, it is well established as a regular feature on the world aviation, aerospace and defence calendar.
The show is the nation's largest and most comprehensive aviation, aerospace and defence exposition.
It encompasses the full range of military and civil aviation and aerospace, as well as air and land defence.
The Avalon show is presented with major support from the Australian Defence Force (in particular the Royal Australian Air Force) and the Defence Materiel Organisation of the Department of Defence.
The event is also extensively supported by other Australian Government agencies, industry organisations and aviation associations.
The Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition at Avalon comprise two separate, but concurrent, events – the Australian International Airshow and the Australian International Aerospace & Defence Exposition.
They are organised respectively by Aviation Development Australia Limited (ABN 54 114 966 175) and Aerospace Australia Limited (ABN 63 091 147 787). The Avalon show alternates with the Pacific International Maritime Exposition, also presented biennially, during the intervening years at Darling Harbour, Sydney by their corporate affiliate, Maritime Australia Limited.
All are not-for-profit foundations, established to promote the development of Australia's industrial, manufacturing and information/communications technology resources in the aviation, aerospace, maritime and defence sectors. They are members of a not-for-profit national group headed by Aerospace Maritime and Defence Foundation of Australia Limited.
The group's members also pursue their respective corporate missions by promoting careers and skills in the aviation, aerospace, maritime and defence sectors through a national series of showcases and forums around Australia
