Market Access

Aerospace is a complex, global industry that requires companies to make and maintain connections and uncover business opportunities across Canada and around the world. Through its partnership with the BC Government and with support from Western Economic Diversification Canada, AIAC Pacific helps the BC industry gain access to Canadian and international markets in a number of ways:

  • Hosting the Aerospace, Defence and Security Expo (ADSE) annually in Abbotsford, BC, alongside the historic Abbotsford Air Show.  ADSE delivers a conference program, trade show, and B2B opportunities. More information on ADSE is available at
  • Promoting and facilitating the presence of BC industry representatives on trade missions and at national and international events such as:
    • Canadian Aerospace Summit (Ottawa)
    • Farnborough International Air Show
    • Paris Air Show
    • Pacific Northwest Aerospace Alliance annual conference (Lynnwood, WA)
    • Aerospace and Defense Supplier Summit (Seattle, WA)
