Transforming the Halls for Helicopters: Heli-Expo 2014
Conventions are both a big business in themselves and often provide an indication of the health of the industry being convened. If this is true, then Heli-Expo 2014, February 25 to 28, at the Anaheim Convention Center in California promises good news for the rotary-wing industry.
According to Helicopter Association International (HAI) officials, “all early indicators point to a show on par with last year’s record-breaking show in Las Vegas.” Among these indicators, as of Sunday, the day before the opening of the exhibit halls, 714 exhibitors had registered to display. The exhibit hall floor covers more than 650,000 square feet. Sixty-three aircraft are on display on the floor.
Putting the displays together is a major undertaking. This image gallery provides a glimmering of what goes into creating an event worthy of the industry.
