With Largest International Presence At Singapore Airshow 2016, U.S. Showcases Commitment To Aerospace And Defense Partnerships, Investment In Southeast Asia
More than 140 exhibitors, nearly 30% of exhibit space, dedicated to U.S. equipment, products and services

SINGAPORE and WALDWICK, N.J., Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- When the biennial Singapore Airshow 2016, Asia's most prominent aerospace and defense trade event, opens February 16 at the Changi Exhibition Centre, the United States of America will be the show's largest international exhibitor. With more than 140 exhibitors and nearly 30% of the show's total 40,000 sqm of indoor exhibit space, the size of the American contingent is a strong indicator of how important the region is to the U.S. aerospace and defense business, and how interested countries in the region are to work with U.S. companies to further their security and economic interests.

The U.S. presence at Singapore, featuring industry leading companies such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Raytheon, is organized by Kallman Worldwide, Inc., the designated U.S. Representative of the show, in coordination with numerous U.S. government agencies, including the Departments of Commerce and Defense, and the Aerospace Industries Association (AIA). For a complete list of U.S. companies at the Singapore Airshow 2016 visit the searchable online directory.

The centerpiece of the national effort, the 3,000 sqm (gross) U.S. International Pavilion, is a destination for buyers looking for an efficient way to meet a critical mass of U.S. suppliers, and an on-site business hub for U.S. exhibitors looking to maximize their exposure and impact at the event.

"When U.S. companies commit to exhibit at the Singapore Airshow, they're saying they believe in the power of this event to attract real business prospects and customers. The steady growth and diversification of the show speaks for itself," said Kallman Worldwide President and CEO, Tom Kallman. "As the organizer of the U.S International Pavilion at Singapore since 2008, our team is proud to help our exhibitors capitalize on this influential international business opportunity to grow their share of the marketplace, and strengthen our nation's trade and investment partnerships in the region."

Kallman noted the 2016 edition of the Singapore Airshow will be the first major industry event held in the region since the signing this past October of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a trade, investment and regulatory agreement among 12 Pacific Rim countries, including the United States. "TPP is certain to impact and influence discussions between U.S. industry leaders and their Asian counterparts at the show," he said.

In addition to organizing the national Pavilion, Kallman Worldwide is promoting U.S. exhibitors with its "Ask America First" advocacy campaign. The message will be placed prominently on site, integrated into hospitality and VIP events during the show, and promoted in social media (follow on Twitter @kallmanEWC).

"The United States is the world's biggest aerospace and defense supplier, but that's no guarantee that buyers will look to work with U.S. companies over others," said Kallman. "As the organizer of the U.S. presence at Singapore, we have a responsibility to advocate not only for our exhibitors, but for our nation in this highly competitive marketplace. We want every visitor to 'Ask America first' at Singapore, and to be assured that America is listening." 


The following exhibitors in the U.S. International Pavilion at the Singapore Airshow 2016 invite media to inquire about their new products and services:
