The Bournemouth Air Festival will take place over three days this year from Thursday the 29th to Saturday the 31st August.
The shorter event is a result of budget cutbacks, but is still expected to attract hundreds of thousands of people from around the region.
It will include the usual rides and attractions on the ground, but unfortunately, due to prior international commitments, The Red Arrows won’t be taking part this year.
BCP Council is now inviting sponsors, traders and exhibitors to come forward to register interest in being part of this year’s event.
Amanda Barrie, Director of Commercial Operations at BCP Council, said: “With its iconic planes, aerobatics, plentiful entertainment and welcoming family-friendly atmosphere, Bournemouth Air Festival is a fantastic finale to the summer, drawing in crowds far and wide.
“This year we’re planning to make the festival even more memorable; listen out for further announcements regarding the event programme in the coming months.”
Councillor Millie Earl, Portfolio Holder for Tourism at BCP Council, continued: “Bournemouth Air Festival marks a huge opportunity for sponsors, traders and exhibitors to get in front of consumers, grow and bring fresh eyes to their brand. The festival has the potential to bring a wealth of opportunities, whether your business is local, national or international.
“Whether you choose to sponsor display acts or the STEM Village, take a prime trading location on the cliff or beach, or have your brand featured in the widely sold official festival programme, the event is a chance to make meaningful connections and develop new relationships.”
Sponsors, traders and exhibitors who would like to register interest in being part of the festival in 2024, should email Ali Perrins, Event Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org or apply online here.
The deadline for expressions of interest is 2pm on Friday 1st March 2024.
