The biannual Helitech show in the UK now has competition rather closer to home than they would like.  Having sold out the Helitech show to Reed Exhibitions, most of the original team are behind “The Helicopter Show 2012” which will be hosted at Farnborough in September 2012.  With the UK version of Helitech in September of odd numbered years, this new event is in September of even numbered years.  Having cancelled the proposed Helitech Brazil in May 2010, and visitors to the Helitech Portugal in October 2010 remarking on low footfall, it seems we have a duel on our hands.  Competition is healthy, as it sharpens the resolve of each organisation involved.

The team behind the new event are:-

  • Sue Bradshaw has been embedded into the world of helicopter exhibitions for the last ten years. She is on first-name terms with every exhibitor and loyalty to exhibitors is her trademark. Exceeding their expectations is what drives her
  • Bob Munton was Chief Executive of Spearhead Exhibitions 2001-2006, responsible for HELITECH and DSEi
  • Isabelle Branson joins The Helicopter Show after 19 years running exhibitions and live events. More recently, Isabelle has worked in live events and focused on business development in the luxury/HNW sector
  • Lesley Ann Sandbach was Managing Director of Spearhead Exhibitions 2001-2006 responsible for Offshore Europe and the Oceanology International series
  • Phil Soar was Chairman of Spearhead throughout the same period and has unmatched experience in exhibition launches and management
