The Helicopter Association International’s annual Heli-Expo, taking place Feb. 21 through 23 in Houston, has thus far shown mixed signals, compared to previous conventions.
This year’s attendance, HAI says, is “within one to three percent of last year’s 17,000 attendees,” meaning visitors have so far trended downward. On the other hand, this year’s Heli-Expo attracted 595 exhibitors; last year, there were 570 exhibitors at the convention.
Heli-Expo features a vast array of industry exhibitors, but there are also safety, maintenance, pilot training, and technology seminars. A job fair is also conducted, complete with an event featuring industry outreach to students.
