April was a great month for us: we were a part of Czech delegation to Aeromart Montreal, suppliers forum for the aeronautic and space industry.
Over the past 20 years, AEROMART has established itself as the global event for the aerospace industry. It is today the leading global aerospace venue based on pre-planned one-to-one meetings.
This year, Aerospace hosted more than 800 companies and 1300 expert guests from 28 world countries and made space for numerous B2B negotiations.
It is not an accident that this event takes place in Montreal – the second biggest Canadian city is known as world’s aerospace capital, along with Seattle and Toulouse. 98% of the sector’s activities are concentrated within a 30-kilometre radius of Greater Montréal. They generate 40,160 jobs, including 13,000 engineering and science specialists. One in 102 people in Québec has a job related to aerospace, one of the highest ratios in the world.
MGM COMPRO was a part of delegation led by Czech Deputy Minister of Transport, Ing. Vladimír Bärtl. Aeromart – being one of the most prominent B2B events of the aviation year – helped us to establish contact with multiple multinational corporations as well as several partnerships with companies from Montreal and Quebéc. We also tried to communicate the topic of complex propulsion units as a basic principle of future aviation.
The results of Aeromart Montreal 2019 exceeded our expectations by a long shot. One of our first interactions with Canadian market was very welcoming and fruitful, and we are very grateful for it. It will be our honor to attend for many more years in the future.
In recent months, our engineers have been working intensively on the development of the first Czech electric utility vehicle – named elZebra – which is being developed by the Zebra Group based in Pardubice, Czech Republic. The electric car, which prides itself for adhering to the highest ecological standards, is just entering the market at a price comparable to its diesel version.
We are excited to announce that one of our significant partners – Dufour Aerospace – bring great news for electric aviation field. The reason is completion of going trough first testing phases of their tilt-wing e-VTOL called aEro 2.
