The MAKS Air Show is the largest business event in Russia, which is considered one of the most important events in the world of the aerospace industry. The high international status of the aviation forum is confirmed by a large number of foreign participants in the salon and a large-scale aircraft exhibition with an impressive air show.
This year, due to the pandemic, the air show was held in conditions limited for an international presence. However, it did not prevent the salon from having a large-scale representation of both Russian and foreign companies. Due to the use of the hybrid format, 831 exhibitors from 56 countries of the world took part in MAKS-2021, and the number of visitors to the air show reached 135 thousand people.
An exposition with an area of 105 thousand sq. m. included the products of the leaders of the Russian aviation and space industries, as well as the results of the works of the largest foreign manufacturers. The airshow traditionally hosted world premieres - the latest products that had not previously been shown in Russia were presented.
The MAKS-2021 business program has been qualitatively strengthened and expanded in comparison with previous air shows. As part of the event, over 100 conferences, seminars, round tables and strategic sessions were held. An innovative solution was the online broadcasting of events, to which about 33 thousand people could virtually join.
