May 22, 2017

Show Observer has been officially covering Russia’s main air show since 2005.

Organizers of MAKS 2017 International Aviation and Space Salon have once again appointed Show Observer as the official daily publication of Russia’s main air show. Show Observer is produced by the publishers of Air Transport Observer, Russia’s largest b2b monthly publication on civil aviation. ATO will also be responsible for producing the official guide for MAKS 2017.

“We are continuing our cooperation with Show Observer, which has been covering all MAKS events in a captivating and timely manner since 2005,” commented Vladimir Sovetkin, commercial director of Aviasalon, the events organizers. “Exhibitors and guests of the show have always emphasized that [Show Observer] is an important information and marketing tool for the air show.”

Daily issues of the Show Observer MAKS 2017 will be published every day during the show’s operation—July 18, 19 and 20—with 10,000 copies of each issue. A team of leading Russian and international aviation journalists will create the content for Show Observer right on the event’s grounds, providing readers with relevant information on the most significant events and exhibits, the latest achievements of aerospace, defense and air transport industry companies, both in Russian and English.

Show Observer as the only official daily will have the exclusive right of distribution through all booths and chalets, and among the business visitors of MAKS 2017, and will enjoy the support of the air show’s organizers. All news published in Show Observer will also be also available online on the web portal and on the ATO app for mobile devices.


Show Observer has been covering MAKS since 2003, and since 2005 has held the status of the show’s official daily. Besides MAKS, Show Observer also successfully covers Russia’s largest aviation and defense events, including the HeliRussia helicopter industry exhibition, JetExpo business aviation show, Army forum, and MRO Russia conference and exhibition.
