The Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition

The most comprehensive aviation, aerospace and defence exposition in the southern hemisphere.


The Australian International Airshow And Aerospace & Defence Exposition is a Biennial major event which Moreton Hire has proudly been the official supplier for all temporary structures since 2003. Over the last 16 years, we have seen this major event go from strength to strength and grow into what is now known as the largest Airshow in the Southern Hemisphere today. 2019 was bigger and better than ever and the Moreton Hire team is already planning for 2021!

The Finer Details:

Moreton hire successfully erected 194 tents over the 3-month bump in process at Avalon Airport, Melbourne Victoria. These structures covered 32,000m2 of the entire site and 12,600m2 of exhibition space that housed 450 exhibitors from the Aerospace and Defence industry. It took the Moreton Hire team 60 semi-trailers worth of equipment for the tent build to site from all three major Moreton Hire branches on the east coast of Australia.

The Extent of The Event

Avalon hosts multiple concurrent conferences and expo streams, across the spectrum of Defence, Airlines, Business and General Aviation, Sport and Recreational Aviation, Airports, MRO, Space, Unmanned Systems, Air Safety and Ground Equipment.

Avalon supports multiple ways to engage with government, industry and defence opportunities; including indoor and outdoor exhibitions, chalets, sponsorship, and networking events. This year’s event ran from Tuesday 26th Feb > Sunday 3rd March.

Official Sponsor

Moreton hire not only was the temporary structure supplier but was involved in the hire and set up of corporate events, the exhibition build, major event signage execution, crowd control and conference break out zone fit outs and furniture hire. Our team was also thrilled to be an official sponsor and hosted three corporate days in a Moreton Hire company tent for our clients.
