Rionegro-Antioquia, Colombia and Waldwick, N.J. / July 5, 2017 — U.S. aerospace and defense companies looking to enter the Latin and South American markets or expand their military and commercial business there will exhibit innovative technologies, equipment and services to buyers and influencers attending F-Air 2017, July 13-16 in Rionegro-Antioquia, Colombia.

The biennial event, the region’s largest and most diversified aerospace industry gathering, is expected to draw hundreds of exhibitors and thousands of trade visitors. Key market sectors of interest and growth are military modernization and expansion of civil aviation infrastructure.

The centerpiece of the American national effort will be the new USA Partnership Pavilion, organized by Kallman Worldwide, Inc., in coordination with numerous government agencies, including the departments of Commerce, Defense and State. It’s Kallman’s third consecutive F-Air Colombia, and its first organizing under the “USA Partnership Pavilion” banner.

“Beyond the dollar value of buy-sell transactions, collaboration, teamwork and partnership are the preferred currencies of the global marketplace,” said company President and CEO Tom Kallman. “The USA Partnership Pavilion extends an invitation for regional cooperation because now more than ever, we all share in each other’s successes.”

Located prominently in the show’s Main Pavilion, the USA Partnership Pavilion is a full-service business destination: an efficient location for buyers to meet more U.S. suppliers, an on-site operations center for American exhibitors to maximize their exposure and impact at the show, and a networking hub for all to share ideas and insights.

In addition to space on site, USA Partnership Pavilion exhibitors are featured in Kallman’s online F-Air Show Visitor Zone at The Visitor Zone features a centerpiece searchable Pavilion directory, plus interactive tools to help trade visitors plan ahead and follow up with exhibitors. It’s also a resource to connect interested industry professionals around the world to the show, even if they can’t go.
