A Bristol based event management company was recently involved in an interesting exhibition down under.

Ignition DG Ltd created a huge impact at the biennial Australian International Airshow (Avalon) this year with the installation of a full scale mock up of an innovative new business jet on the largest exhibition stand at the show.

Ignition, which is headquartered at The Paintworks, creative quarter in Bristol, landed a star slot for the Pilatus Super Versatile PC-24 business jet showcasing a full scale fuselage and cabin mock up of the new aircraft.

Visitors to the impressive 400 square metre Pilatus stand, including the Hon Kevin Andrews MP, Australian Minister for Defence, were able to view the showcase replica of the 17 metre long aircraft which is the world’s first ever business jet designed for use on short, unprepared runways.

Samantha Rowe, Managing Director of Ignition, comments: “We were enormously excited to rise to the challenge of promoting this innovative new jet at one of the world’s great airshows for such a prestigious client.

“We secured the contract on the basis of our global capacity and our creative proposals for the Pilatus stand which we purposely kept clean and simple so that the main focus was on the PC-24, allowing the aircraft to speak for itself.”

“It was quite a feat getting such a huge mock-up into place inside the exhibition hall but well worth the effort. Visitors were simply amazed at how the aircraft had landed there and it made an enormous impact at the show!”

The biennial Australian International Airshow or Avalon Airshow, held at Avalon Airport, near Melbourne, Australia, from 24th February to 1st March 2015, is one of Asia Pacific’s most prestigious aviation, aerospace and defence exhibitions, attracting high profile visitors from all over the globe.
