TTS Group represents one of Asia’s largest Air Show!
TTS Group is honoured to be represented in Singapore Air Show 2020 as their traffic consultant.
Once again, it was a busy period for our TTS Group Singapore as they executed their traffic plans for the event organizer, Experia Events. Our team, led by Malcolm, went down on three separate dates, 11th, 13th and 15th February 2020 to prepare an operationally implementable traffic scheme. This scheme caters to the air show visitors as well as not adversely affecting the surrounding stakeholders.
The Singapore Air Show 2020 was held at the Changi Exhibition Centre on 11th-16th February 2020. Every two years, high-level government and military delegations, as well as senior corporate executives around the world attend the Singapore Airshow to forge partnerships and seal deals in this region. As Asia’s largest Airshow, this is the place to be for leading aerospace companies and budding players eager to make their mark in the international aerospace and defence market!
The event offers a unique platform for industry thought leadership through its high-level conference, forums and co-located events. Leading industry players, government and military chiefs gather here bi-annually to contribute to dialogues, exchange ideas and seek solutions and strategies to advance the interests of the global aerospace and defence sector.
The airshow was opened by Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen and Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan, who said in a Facebook post that exhibitors he spoke to were keen to carry on with the event.
"They are confident of the eventual recovery in this sector, especially in Asia," he said in the post.
On a brighter note, the thumping aerobatics continued to be a fan favourite as planes from the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF), the Chinese People's Liberation Army Air Force and the US Air Force (USAF) wowed the crowd with their stunts.
Just over 20,000 visitors attended the public segment of this year’s edition of the biennial Singapore Airshow over the weekend, a quarter of the 2018 edition that saw more than 80,000 people attending over the same period. This is in part due to a decision made by the organizers, Experia Events, in light of the virus outbreak. As one of its precautionary measures to ensure well-being and safety of all attendees, the organisers said that they had to scale down sale of public day tickets by more than half. While the smaller crowd was a visual reminder of the health threat that Singapore faces, many attendees were largely unbothered by it.
“Even though the airshow showcased the latest in aviation technology amidst COVID-19, that did not dampen the spirits to all those present and all those who have spent the past 1.5 years preparing for it”. Said Malcolm, TTS Group Manager, Data Collection.
TTS Group has come a long way with Experia Events to implement this traffic scheme which successfully improves the commuters and visitors to the Singapore Air Show.
We look forward for the next Singapore Airshow in 2022!
Well done TTS Group Singapore!
