NI International Air Show Non-food Exhibitors and trading opportunity application form 2024

With the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean and viewing along part of the world-famous circuit of the North West 200 motorcycle race, it is proposed that the new NI International Air Show will build on its reputation as a signature event for Causeway Coast and Glens.

It is fully expected that the coastal assets between Portrush and Portstewart will be fully utilised, enhancing trading opportunities. The ground layout is geographically more extensive than the previous Air Show NI event in Portrush, with multiple viewing points along the Borough’s coastline. This enhanced layout presents an opportunity for traders due to the larger ground footprint between Portrush and Portstewart maximising the visitor experience.

There will be several options available along the A2 Coast Road, spanning from Ballyreagh Golf Course to West Bay in Portrush
