The Airship Association will hold the 9th Biennial International Airship Convention & Exhibition from 20th to 23rd June 2012 at the Ashford International Hotel, Ashford, Kent in South East England.

Booking at the Ashford International with the conference discount rates has now expired, but there may be other promotions over that period. If you wish to arrange other accommodation, the Ashford Tourist Information Centre also has full details of other accommodation options available in the East Kent area.

As on previous occasions the Convention's main feature is to be a conference where all aspects of airships can be discussed. Anyone who wishes to submit a paper for presentation at the Conference should follow the appropriate instructions given in the Call for Papers. (Papers have now been selected for 2012).

A welcome reception will be held on the evening of Wednesday 20th June 2012. The cost of the welcoming reception is included in delegate registration, other guests will be required to purchase a ticket. The welcome reception tickets will be available for sale on our website or upon registration by mail. There will also be a banquet on the evening of Thursday 21st June 2012 which all delegates are invited to attend. Spouses, partners and other guests will also be very welcome. The cost of the banquet is priced separately and tickets should be purchased for all participating in the banquet. The banquet tickets will be available for sale on our website or upon registration by mail.

We are also planning to hold a model airship regatta , similar to that staged at our 2010 Convention in Bedford, but incorporating a load carrying element to the competition. Dr Giles Camplin and Mr Martin Hill of the Airship Association Council have volunteered to organise the regatta. There will also be a Partner Programme.
