About 300 U.S. companies from 30 states are exhibiting at the Farnborough International Airshow, with more than 250 of them in the new USA Partnership Pavilion, organized by Kallman Worldwide, Inc. with the support of various government agencies such as the departments of Commerce, Defense, State and Transportation.
The pavilion includes 20 state pavilions organized by individual departments of economic development or commerce. While about 50 exhibitors are new to market, 90 companies are exhibiting at the show for the first time.
“The USA Partnership Pavilion provides a unique showcase for the United States’ commitment to increased trade, economic growth, prosperity and global security,” said U.S. Ambassador to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Robert W. Johnson.
The 2018 show is Kallman Worldwide’s 11th consecutive edition organizing Americans at Farnborough, but its first under the “USA Partnership Pavilion” banner.
“Now more than ever, success in international trade comes from partnership and teamwork,” says Kallman Worldwide President and CEO Tom Kallman. “The USA Partnership Pavilion sharpens our focus on helping advance America’s national interests and security by building stronger relationships with our international customers.”
The Pavilion will commemorate the 100th anniversaries of the WWI armistice and the founding of the Royal Air Force (RAF) with dedicated events and presentations. During the Pavilion opening ceremony on July 16, Kallman will lead the presentation of a U.S. flag flown to the Moon on Apollo 15 and signed by the mission Command Module Pilot, Col. Al Worden, USAF-Ret., to RAF Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Hillier, on the occasion of RAF100, the service’s centenary. Kallman has also minted a limited-edition keepsake “challenge coin” to commemorate the centennials and the American presence at Farnborough.
