Helitech organisers confirmed to HeliHub.com at Duxford that they are not going to be running an event in Portugal in 2012 as previously planned. The poor economic situation is cited as the main reason, particularly as both Portugal and Spain form part of the “PIGS” countries.Â This acronym coined by the financial media brings together the initials of the four countries seeking bale-outs from other countries and gives rise to extensive discussion about the ongoing viability of the Euro currency in its present form.Â The other two countries are, of course, Ireland and Greece.
The same decision was made by Helitech organisers Reed in cancelling Helitech Brazil which had been planned to run 25-27 May 2010.Â We can find no reference on the Reed Exhibitions or Helitech Events website to a future Brazil event either.
HeliHub.com also noted that Helitech were very actively pushing their 2013 event at Duxford – which you can put in your diary now for 24-26 September 2013.
