A Successful Singapore Airshow 2018

February 23rd, 2018

Bolloré Logistics Asia-Pacific is happy to announce that this year’s edition of the Singapore Airshow was a resounding success. This edition of the biennial event was the 6th since the show’s inception in 2008. With a plethora of exhibitors from 38 countries, there were plenty of opportunities to boost Bolloré Logistics’ recognition at Asia’s largest Aerospace and Defense Airshow. This year featured not just one, but two Bolloré locations within the trade show, both at the booth and chalet. 

​The Bolloré Logistics booth has been visited by many people. A lot of information was available through our marketing materials such as our dedicated brochures showcasing our tailored services for Airlines & MROs, Aerospace, and Helicopters, as well as our Press Kit. The presence of IER, a company belonging to the Bolloré Group, which develops and deploys mobile and self-service machines for passenger processing, and also offers track and trace tools for supply chains and logistics providers, was also a great success.

“The entire industry has embraced self-service solutions and technology, which for airlines and airports also enhances customer experience,” says Fabrice Godeau, Managing Director at IER for Asia-Pacific and the Middle East. “We have teams of solution designers tailoring systems for clients, and creating end-to-end service for passengers who increasingly demand there be less time and fewer steps involved between entering terminals to their planes taking off.”

The Bolloré chalet was equally busy between multiple events such as Speed Meetings, Workshops, and daily Business Luncheons. Over the Trade Days from February 6-9, 2018, executives had the chance to network across 24 different Bolloré Logistics entities. Our internal Speed Meetings brought together both Regional and Key Account Managers to create innovative solutions to address concerns in the Aerospace industry. In addition, some workshops were conducted to improve our approach to challenges in Asian countries that require greater finesse in complying with government and regulatory standards.

Bolloré Logistics’ clients were also welcomed into the chalet during our daily Business Luncheons. Over a scrumptious buffet, clients and executives fostered a better understanding of their needs and goals. Some clients were even treated to special access visits to our notable hubs in order to gain a better sense of our infrastructure and capabilities. Upon their exit of the chalet, clients received a goodie bag containing - amongst other things - a mock-up of a boarding pass which allowed them to enter a lucky draw at our booth.

All in all, Bolloré Logistics Asia-Pacific had a very productive time at the Singapore Airshow 2018 and would like to thank the team for working towards a successful event, as well as the clients and prospects who took the time to visit us. We hope to see everyone again at the next edition in 2020!
