The strong presence of the space industry is a significant feature of this year's ILA. The Space World exhibition serves as an international forum for dialogue with politicians, agencies, science and research professionals, the media and the general public. According to the ILA, "The international character of the Space World will be underlined by the presence of the Space Foundation." ILA is organized jointly by the association representing the German aerospace industry, Bundesverband der Deutschen Luft- und Raumfahrtindustrie (BDLI) e.V., Berlin, and by Messe Berlin GmbH.
