On 05 March 2019, the organizers of the Farnborough International Airshow announced that the 2020 edition will not include the public weekend, but will become a 5-day event, from Monday to Friday.

However, on Friday the show will open its doors to the public and will focus on the inspiration of the next generation and on the presentation of the technologies behind new products and manufactoring rocesses.

Gareth Rogers, CEO of Farnborough International says: “The Farnborough International Airshow is a unique event. Allowing the public to see more of the people, products and processes that underpin the global aerospace, defence and space industries will help engage and inspire a new generation.

“Removing the public weekend will disappoint some, but for our exhibitors and trade visitors the focus is on business and accessing the talent they need to sustain global competitiveness.”

The Farnborough International Airshow is one of the world’s most important aerospace trade events. In 2018, the biennial show hosted more than 1,500 exhibitors and welcomed 80,000 visitors representing 112 countries.

The event will open on Monday 20 July 2020 and will run until Friday 24 July. It will include an air display on each day of the airshow to showcase the latest commercial and military aircraft.
