Historic Showing Of “Team USA” At 2023 Paris Air Show Highlights America’s Commitment To Global Partnership
300-plus U.S. companies exhibiting in the USA Partnership Pavilion, a third of which are new-to-show, in efforts to grow international business relationships
Paris, France / June 20, 2023 — Following a four-year hiatus, U.S. industry has returned to the Paris Air Show with historic numbers, relaying an important message to the global aerospace community – America is “open for business.”
This morning at 11:00am, U.S. exhibitors, distinguished guests, and visitors will gather in Hall 3 for remarks and a ceremonial ribbon cutting to officially open the USA Partnership Pavilion, joined by the Honorable Denise Campbell Bauer, Ambassador of the United States of America to France.
Over 300 U.S. companies, coined “Team USA,” are exhibiting within the USA Partnership Pavilion at Le Bourget, covering at total of 6,500 square meters in the newly renovated exhibition hall. The increased American presence at the show this year demonstrates the country’s overall commitment to increased trade, economic growth, prosperity, and global security.
“Team USA” represents a staggering 36 states, including 17 state pavilions featuring state-based co-exhibitors within the larger U.S. space. Among these co-exhibitors are over 200 small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and 16 start-up companies, respectively residing in the newly dedicated SME Zone and Start-Me-Up Zone under the U.S. umbrella. 90 Pavilion exhibitors are new to market, 110 are new to the show, and all are looking to share their innovations and grow exports by expanding overseas and/or recruiting international partners to establish or participate in U.S.-based operations.
The USA Partnership Pavilion, organized by Kallman Worldwide in coordination with the U.S. Department of Commerce, Defense, State, and Transportation, forms the centerpiece of the American national presence at the show. This year marks the 28th year that Kallman has assembled the American contingent at the Paris Air Show, and the company’s 60th year advancing global trade.
In response to this incredible display of national effort, Tom Kallman, President and CEO of Kallman Worldwide, stated “National pavilions are a patriotic expression of collective industry pride, presented in the spirit of global partnership,” said Kallman. “The USA Partnership Pavilion at the Paris Air Show is more than a week-long home away from home for our exhibitors. It’s a statement of America’s dedicated role in the past, present, and future of the aerospace and defense industry.”
When the trade days come to a close, the Pavilion will transform into “Spaceport USA,” a space-themed, interactive showcase of immersive activities, engineering innovations, and technology demonstrations to engage and educate visitors of all ages. This extra effort to encourage inspire future generations to pursue careers in aviation and aerospace comes at a critical time for the industry with workforce shortages on the rise.
