Showcasing the Future of Vertical Flight

The VFS 80th Annual Forum and Technology Display, the industry's longest running and most established vertical flight event, returns to the Palais des Congrès de Montréal, May 7-9, 2024. This year's Forum technology display will attract a broad international audience from both military and commercial sectors representing the vertical flight industry's top program managers and aerospace professionals.

Why Montréal?

Montréal remains one of the world's largest aerospace markets in the world, ranking as the third largest aerospace hub after Seattle, Washington and Toulouse, France. Located in the Province of Québec, the region represents 70% of Canada's aerospace R&D spending. The Québec aerospace industry produces more than $15 billion in sales annually, 75% from exports. Collectively, Québec's aerospace community is comprised of 200+ firms employing more than 36,100 engineers, technicians and other skilled aerospace workers, the overwhelming majority concentrated in greater Montréal.
