The Airport Show Dubai kicked off at the Dubai World Trade Center on Monday under the patronage of Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the Chairman of Dubai Airports, President of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Chairman and CEO of Emirates Group.
Over the past 17 years, the Airport Show Dubai has proven to be the best platform for the global airport industry. It is by far the world’s largest exhibition for airports, their ancillary services and several other aviation related products.
The three-day event is expected to bring together governments, aviation authorities and key heads of major airlines from the Middle East, Africa and South Asia assemble to survey the landscape of new trends and technologies and the best suppliers and manufacturers – all under one roof.
Last year, the 10,860 sq m exhibition hosted more than 300 exhibitors from over 50 countries, featured eight country pavilions, was visited by more than 7,000 aviation professionals and facilitated nearly 3,700 business meetings, making it an airport business hub unlike any other.
The conferences, which saw global airport heavyweights take center stage, welcomed 168 delegates from across the globe.
Supported by the Dubai Government and private sectors, the 18th edition of the Airport Show will bring even more innovations and features in 2018. Most important among them being the ATC Forum – to connect the ATC community; Security Day – for the aviation security community and Women in Aviation – which, aims to promote the higher participation of women in the Middle East’s robust aviation sector.
