Groups join forces to promote helicopter industry at Rotortech 2018 in Queensland

The Sunshine Coast will host Australia's premier helicopter event, Rotortech 2018.

The Aerospace Maritime and Defence Foundation of Australia (AMDFA) and the Australian Helicopter Industry Association (AHIA) have joined forces for the first time to promote the Australian helicopter industry.

Under the terms of a newly signed agreement, the foundation's conference and exhibition arm, Industry Defence and Security Australia Limited, will become a major long-term corporate sponsor of the association and will conduct the biennial Rotortech Conference and Exhibition.

AMDFA has been a long-time supporter of AHIA and was the Founding Corporate Sponsor in 2012 when the association was formed.

Rotortech will join the AMDFA's suite of flagship events including the Avalon Airshow, the Pacific International Maritime Exposition and the Land Forces defence exposition.

Rotortech 2018 will be held at Novotel Twin Waters Resort, Maroochydore, from 24–26 May 2018. AMDFA says a website is scheduled to be up and running soon.
