Southeast Asia –
An Expanding Frontier for Airport Projects
More airports are learning about long lasting solutions
At inter airport South East Asia 2019, more than 4,000 airport industry professionals spent three days learning, discovering, networking and experiencing the latest products and innovations available specifically for the Southeast Asian region.

Interest in this region has greatly expanded, which is evident by the 22% increase in the size of the exhibition since 2017. What does this mean for U.S. companies? It’s a terrific introduction to airports that could benefit from new products.

For D.S. Brown, this show was a great success. There was interaction and conversations with airport representatives from the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia. In particular, there was high interest in long lasting joint sealants and spall repair projects.
“Even though D.S. Brown has a strong presence in the U.S. and internationally, there were many airports at inter airport South East Asia that are just learning about D.S. Brown products for the first time,” said Ryan Sypherd, National Sales Manager, D.S. Brown Company.

“This show provided a really nice opportunity to gain exposure internationally and explain how our products can reduce downtime at airports, which is crucial.”
