CAPA is the largest multimedia information and services provider for the global aviation, aerospace, and defense industries, serving 1.7 million professionals around the world.

The Summit will examine the commercial and operational issues affecting airlines and airports in both developed and emerging markets.

CAPA Chairman Emeritus Peter Harbison: “It is important and timely that CAPA bring the brand of informative and educational summits to the Middle East and Africa. Both regions are going through important change and development, and like all our events, we will seek to tap into these changes and address the key issues impacting the regions.”

The Summit will begin with regional spotlights determining the issues impacting each location and opportunities to improve growth. Complementing this will be a mix of aviation, macroeconomic, travel and geopolitical topics across a range of keynotes and interactive panel discussions.
