At the 2014 Airshow, Smart also provided the technical assistance for the opening ceremony.

Darren Poultney, managing director of Smart AV and founder of IPG which incorporates Smart AV, comments: “We are delighted to be supporting the Farnborough International Airshow for the fifth show and eighth year running, alongside our sister company Smart Digital.

“We have been supporting the aerospace sector at FIA for over 10 years and we look forward to producing what we are sure will be another ground-breaking show in 2016.” 

Smart AV’s sister company and fellow IPG division Smart Digital has also been awarded official digital screen network partner status for the 2016 show.
