Europe had the highest market share of commercial helicopters in 2013, and more growth is expected this year in offshore oil and gas, EMS and SAR services. HeliTech (Booth No. 4123) has picked up a new and powerful partner to help promote participation in its USA Pavilion during the European Helicopter Association’s Helitech International show, taking place from October 14 to 16 in Amsterdam.

The U.S. Commercial Service (USCS), supporting American businesses with government and trade promotion activities in 75 countries, has agreed to offer matchmaking opportunities at the Amsterdam event to USA Pavilion participants, introducing them to possible buyers from Europe and around the world.

“In light of the encouraging forecast for helicopter sales in Europe, we are keen to network with a wide cross-section of the U.S. rotary industry here in Anaheim, highlighting Helitech’s potential export dimension,” said John Hyde, event director for Helitech International. Expectations are high for this year’s show, he said. In 2013 Helitech hosted 220 exhibiting companies that represented 26 countries, along with 5,600 attendees, a 30-percent increase over Helitech 2012.
