The Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition will be held over six days from Tuesday 28 February to Sunday 5 March 2017.

Exclusive industry-only trade sessions will be held from the Tuesday to Thursday, followed by both industry and public sessions on Friday.

The principal public days (on which the main flying displays take place) will be Saturday and Sunday, while on Friday the world-renowned "Night Alight" Spectacular follows an afternoon flying display open to the public.

Also on the Friday AVALON 2017 will again host a program of careers information briefings for secondary school students to encourage interest in careers in aviation, aerospace and defence.

An extensive range of associated conferences, seminars and symposia will be held at Avalon and other venues in Melbourne and Geelong during Airshow week.

Each evening, both Melbourne and Geelong will, as usual, be a-buzz with corporate dinners, business functions and receptions.

AVALON 2017 promises to be a vital, vibrant and action-packed event.
