Australia's growing helicopter industry exhibition, Rotortech, will relocate to Brisbane's Royal International Convention Centre (RICC) from 2020.
Traditionally held on the Sunshine Coast, the event has grown significantly since its inception in 2014, leading to the event organisers, Aviation Maritime Defence Security Foundation of Australia (AMDSFA), looking for a larger home.
The 2018 event attracted 996 registered delegates and more than 80 exhibitors.
RICC is a part of the Brisbane Showgrounds, which AMDSFA believes will provide more exhibition space, increased conference facilities and greater ease of access for Australian and overseas delegates. Exhibitors will also be able to land helicopter on the exhibition site, a feature that proved popular with Rotortech 2018.
Although the host organisation is the Australian Helicopter Industry Association (AHIA), Rotortech is conducted by Aerospace Australia Limited, a part of AMDSFA, which also runs the Australian International Airshow.
Rotortech is scheduled for 16-18 June 2020.
