Helicopter Association International has just concluded HAI HELI-EXPO 2019 in Atlanta Georgia. With attendance comparable to prior years, thousands of attendees participated in over 150 education courses, technical briefings, workshops, forums, meetings, and seminars; and walked the over 1 million square feet of exhibits and meeting space throughout the week. As a first time at the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC) for HAI HELI-EXPO, exhibitors and attendees alike experienced one of the largest facilitates HAI has used for the show allowing for a better show floor flow, and with the opportunity to continue to grow further in years to come.
57 aircraft were flown or trucked into the convention center and on display. 480 attendees enhanced their skills through the Professional Education Courses, over 200 attended the Military to Civilian Workshop, while 2,880 took the Rotor Safety Challenge and over 400 sat in on Manufacturer Technical Briefings.
Exhibitors and attendees alike expressed very positive feedback for both the show experience as well as the city of Atlanta and the GWCC facility, and look forward to a return in the future.
We look forward to seeing you in Anaheim California next year for HAI HELI-EXPO 2020. Note it will be earlier than usual – January 27-30 (Exhibits 28-30) 2020, so be sure to set your calendar now.
