At the heart of the Paris Air Show, Concorde Hall is pleased to host the first edition of Paris Air Lab: 3000 square meters dedicated to research and innovation. Featuring collaborative work from industrial groups, companies, and startups from aeronautics and aerospace, and conference debates on the future of the field, international startup pitches, immersive experiences and more, the Paris Air Lab has something for everyone.

Participants can explore 22 booths dedicated to innovation, aeronautics, aerospace and digital technology, or follow suggested thematic paths throughout the event. The Paris Air Lab has two conference rooms for keynote speakers and pitch sessions, five virtual reality booths, a “future vehicles” booth, and “Earth seen from above” photo exhibition. The Paris Air Lab also offers several co-working and relaxation spaces so participants can take time to enjoy the experience.

From artificial intelligence to jet propulsion, nearly 100 startups will be featured throughout the week, as well as more than a dozen industrial associations, space agencies, and research centers, who will work together to present their latest collaborative innovations.
