With more than 2000 delegates from 20 countries spanning 5 continents, the annual Civil Avionics International Forum (CAIF) has proven to be a global avionics forum since its inception in2012. The CAIF is a conference that gathers together international civil avionics industry leaders to discuss the growing demand within the Chinese market. Participants have included aircraft OEMs such as Boeing, Airbus and COMAC, along with the four major avionics systems suppliers in China: Honeywell, Rockwell Collins, Thales Avionics and AVIAGE Systems. The CAIF is also the only avionics conference to be both endorsed by the Chinese government and organized by the AVIC Avionics System Group with support from all the major Chinese civil aviation manufactures; and represents the largest platform for buyers of international avionics products and services in China.

CAIF delegates have represented their organizations each year through thought-provoking presentations, panel discussions and booth exhibits: as well as scores of one-on-one business meetings. Many leading to new ventures with Chinese partners. Each year there are more than 80 groups of one to one business meeting, and at least 5 groups reached a cooperation intention. This year, the CAIF introduces an additional sub-forum to its regular agenda: The Airborne software and electronic hardware. Sub-forum will be hosted by COMAC, China’s largest aircraft OEM.
