The fourth edition of the successful MRO Middle East is just over a week away and registraion numbers are growing.


The event which takes place at Dubai's Airport Expo, Feburary 1-2 will showcase the latest and most innovative concepts while enforcing the advancement of the airline and aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul in the region. The accompanying conference will bring together leading industry experts to explore and share best practices to develop new fleets, improve ROI and reduce costs.

Produced by F&E Aerospace and Aviation Week, the two-day MRO ME show is running simultaneously with Aircraft Interiors Middle East (AIME) and more than 2,000 trade visitors are expected to attend.

The MRO exhibition will see the return of 200 industry leading companies such as Abu Dhabi Aircraft Technologies (ADAT), Boeing, Lufthansa Technik, Bombardier, Pratt & Whitney and Rockwell Collins.

Keynote speakers include Nasser AlSalmi, COO of Gulf Air, Abdul Wahab Teffaha, Secretary General of AACO, and Simon Tate, CEO of JorAMCo.

Michele Van Akelijen, Event Director at F&E Aerospace, said: “The maintenance, repair and overhaul industry continues to thrive, as evidenced at the recent Dubai Airshow, when Mubadala Aerospace’s Advanced Military Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul Centre (AMMROC) announced a $315 million agreement with Boeing Defense, Space and Security to provide support to military aviation platforms in the UAE. As anticipated the world’s leading MRO experts and companies are setting their sights on the Middle East.”

The previous event in 2011 attracted more than 1,800 visitors to the exhibition which had over 100 MRO service providers and aircraft component suppliers from nearly 25 countries, showcasing their products and services.
