Launched over 45 years ago with a handful of gliders and motor gliders as a small aviation exhibition in the context of a regional automobile exhibition has developed into one of the world's most important industry meetings with a impressive line-up of all kind of aircraft types.
AERO has also benefited from Friedrichshafen as a cradle of aviation, which was established in 1900 by Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin, as well as from the booming UL industry. In 1995, the Business Aviation section was introduced at AERO for the first time. In addition, the trade show significantly expanded its offerings in the areas of avionics, maintenance and aviation services in the following years.
The move to the new exhibition halls at the airport followed in 2002. AERO is one of the few trade fairs to have its own taxiway to the exhibition center. The focus of the trade show on innovation, active people in aviation and future topics such as sustainable aviation has always driven the growth of AERO and made it the world's leading trade show for innovations in General Aviation that it is today.
Since 2022, AERO is organized by fairnamic GmbH, a joint venture between Messe Frankfurt and Messe Friedrichshafen with a clear focus on future mobility.
