At the Aircraft Interiors Middle East (AIME) in Dubai BOXMARK presented the new VIP seat for the first time. Besides the design also the upholstery was completely reworked. The Octaspring technology was used, for which BOXMARK received together with Vanema and other project partners the Crystal Cabin Award in 2017. An also redesigned 3-place bench for economy class demonstrated the almost unlimited design possibilities.
As already in the year before, also at this year’s trade fair current and numerous new projects with high-level representatives of well-known airlines and seat manufacturers have been discussed. According to the organizer, on both trade fair days (January 23 and 24, 2018) in total about 4,700 trade fair visitors – almost 200 more than in the previous year – have been welcomed.
