The first participation of the organisers of the Slovak International Air Fest (MLD SIAF) in the convention of the European Airshow Council has already resulted in exceptional success. The Slovak Aviation Agency won the award for an exceptional contribution to the world of European airshows and the award in the category of Media & Marketing. The annual EAC convention took place in Malta between March 2 and 4.

“This is a huge success,” said Hubert Štoksa, general director of MLD SIAF and director of the Slovak Aviation Agency as cited by the SITA newswire. “EAC is an international authority in aviation and such acknowledgement confirms that the Slovak International Air Fest is an internationally accepted project.”

The award also brings the challenge to ensure that each following festival is better than the previous one. Also thanks to them the organisers now have an excellent position when negotiationg with partners and participants for future shows.
