With Australia’s Avalon Airshow about to commence, a record number of US participants are expected to attend the 2023 event.

Industry dates for the annual aerospace and defence exposition are set for February 28 through March 5. The Airshow will then be open to the general public between March 3 and March 5

Demonstrating the latest in U.S. technologies and services, the U.S. national group at Avalon Airshow this year will be the largest ever, the total national contingent consisting of 100+ companies in Halls 2 and 3 from February 28 – March 5 in Geelong, Australia. 

America’s leading manufacturers and suppliers, many with proven operating partnerships already in country, are participating at this year’s show.

Notably, market leaders General Atomics Aeronautical Systems (Booth #3M11), Lockheed Martin (Booth #3G20), Northrop Grumman Corporation (Booth #3M18), and Raytheon Technologies (Booth #3G7), are all exhibiting within the USA Partnership Pavilion. 

The USA Partnership Pavilion is organized by Kallman Worldwide, Inc., in coordination with numerous U.S. government agencies, including the departments of Commerce, Defense and State. The Pavilion will be the home of the U.S. presence at the show.

Located prominently in Halls 2 and 3, the Pavilion will be comprised of 86 US exhibiting companies representing 17 states – occupying over 1200 square meters at the show. 

PTS Expeditionary Communications, another U.S. company debuting at Avalon this year, is exhibiting with Alabama Department of Commerce at Booth #3D10.

PTS manufactures Power Supply Docking Stations (PSDS) that enable Warfighters to operate tactical radio systems in fixed and semi-fixed environments.

As the sole North American Distributor for all Rolatube manufactured products, PTS is looking to expand to Australia at Avalon 2023. 

Alongside the hall exhibits and chalets, the U.S. Airforce, Army, Marines, and Navy will have assets on ground display and participating in the flying display, with intended participation from the F-15 Eagle, MV-22 Osprey, and AH-64E Apache.
