After a record-breaking year, more than half the exhibition space for 2016's Farnborough Airshow has already been booked up.

Farnborough International Ltd (FIL) announced on Monday that 64% of exhibition space is already sold or reserved, with almost a quarter of space booked during the show week.

The show organisers have also announced that the 2016 show will coincide with Boeing's centenary anniversary, and they are in discussions with the corporation about its presence at the biennial event.

Following on from the success of this year's airshow, a spokesperson for FIL said an early booking offer has encouraged repeat booking for exhibitors, as new development for the next airshow is already well underway.

Speaking about the announcement, Amanda Stainer, FIL commercial director, said, “We’re delighted by the positive sales to date, it is a strong reflection that we’re delivering for our exhibitors and visitors.

"Our early booking rate and enhanced floor plans have encouraged exhibitors to secure their position at the show early and we urge anyone that hasn’t been in touch yet to get in contact before the offer closes.”

Post-event research showed that 75% of exhibitors rated their overall experience and visitor quality at this year's airshow as either good or excellent.

The event also met exhibitor’s main objectives to generate sales and promote their business.

Over the course of the five-day global aerospace trade event, the value of orders and commitments totalled more than £130 billion (US $204 billion) - a record for the show.

Plans for the 2016 Farnborough Airshow are now in development and the show organisers are looking to make some significant enhancements to the show in response to the exhibitor and visitor research.

These include a larger civil delegations programme, improved participation initiatives and enhanced exhibiting options for international and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The Space Zone, which has now become an integral feature of the show, and the Innovation Zone will once again have increased presence.
