Dubai Airshow to have new features

Posted 22 June 2017 · Add Comment

The new features taking place at the Dubai Airshow 2017 including new sector specific pavilions, Space Pavilion, UAV Summit, Cargo Zone and the return of Airport Solutions, are set to bring focus to new market sectors when the show opens in November.

The Space Pavilion and conference in particular is shaping up to be a key feature of the event, produced in partnership with the UAE Space Agency. Space exploration is a national priority for the UAE and this new feature has been developed to support the government’s strategic objectives of building the region’s space sector. Exhibitors from around the globe are keen to be part of this growing market with Spanish Aistech and Russian Reshtenev among those already committed to exhibiting.

With the Middle East UAV market growing rapidly - both in terms of the number of UAVs operating in the region and also the increasing investment in manufacturing, it is fitting that the Dubai Airshow will feature a UAV pavilion and conference in 2017. The UAV Summit will include conference sessions with industry leading experts, flying display and the UAV exhibition zone. 

The introduction of the Cargo Zone at the Dubai Airshow comes at a time when Al Maktoum International Airport now hosts the world’s largest cargo operations, boosting Dubai’s claim to transform into a key regional hub with a capacity to handle more than 12 million tonnes of cargo annually.

Airport Solutions Dubai, part of the Airport Solutions Global Series, will also feature in the Dubai Airshow 2017, bringing together the entire airports and aviation buying chain from manufacturers, airport operators, developers, regulators and investors, through to end users. Featuring a two-day programme, the conference will offer leading airport developers and suppliers the exclusive opportunity to interface with airports and aviation leaders on the demand side of the growth equation. 

“The Dubai Airshow has always been at the forefront of the aerospace industry,” said Michele van Akelijen, managing director of show organisers F&E Aerospace. “It represents all sectors of the industry and with recent advances in technology and capabilities in many sectors, it was the right time to make these focus points at the show. The response we have received has demonstrated that the market clearly has a need for these, and we are expecting all of our new features to be extremely busy at the Dubai Airshow 2017.”
