Singapore Airshow 2022

The biennial Singapore Airshow returned in February 2022 as a by-invite tradeshow for high-level government and military delegations, as well as global industry players. Reputed as one of Asia’s most influential aerospace and defence exhibitions, the four-day tradeshow took place amidst the ongoing COVID-19 situation as a platform for global key players to navigate through the pandemic and forge ahead for a robust recovery of the aviation sector.

Pico was appointed by Experia (organizer) once again as the official technical partner for in-hall and chalet requirements for the 2022 edition.



As the event would be subjected to pandemic control measures amidst an ever-changing climate, the Pico team was always prepared to adjust and make necessary changes, such as last-minute requests on raw space take-up and updates on participation of exhibitors.

As additional consideration, the team was also to include the implementation for on-site safe distancing measures for all staff, visitors and exhibitors.


Pico was responsible for the build of overall infrastructure of all chalets, totalling more than 40 units with an area of more than 3,000 sq. m. Commencing from November 2021, the scope of work included core steel structures as well as carpentry, electrical work and plumbing. Pico oversaw the chalets’ handover at the end of January to their respective owners/exhibitors for their engaged interior contractors to furnish.

In-hall, Pico carried out work for organizer requirements such as the construction of a lounge, business forum, meeting rooms, etc, for the four-day agenda. Taking crowd control and safe distancing measures into consideration, the team implemented staggered timing for move-ins and logistics movements. Planning of the floor layout also included safe distancing signage. Also factored in was extra manpower such as security to check the Pre-Event Testing status and belongings of Pico staff entering the site.


“Singapore Airshow 2022 placed highest priority on safety and health, and Pico was able to meet the demand with its competencies in robust planning and implementation. Pico understood the requirements for implementing on-site measures, and adhering to mandatory safe distancing at all times in large-scale events during the pandemic. They were able to adapt with watertight solutions at various operational touchpoints that were implemented very smoothly.“

“What we most appreciate was Pico’s client-centric approach to the entire event. From the build-up through to the tear-down journey, Pico listened, asked questions, and proposed solutions with an open mind for candid feedback. This is the most important ingredient in a successful partnership which resulted in a well-organized and safe Singapore Airshow 2022”
