“MEBAA Conferences are a pivotal feature of MEBAA’s mission to provide enriching experiences to our members,” said Ali Alnaqbi, Founding & Executive Chairman of the Middle East and North Africa Business Aviation Association (MEBAA). He continued, “The conferences across the Middle East and North Africa have always been the place for the industry to share knowledge and take part in useful discussions. The MEBAA Conference Dubai 2018 will certainly provide that, and we are proud to be bringing so many key industry leaders together for the event.” 

As the MEBAA Conference Dubai will this year be located within the MEBAA Show 2018, attendees will benefit from the opportunity to interact with the exhibitors and visitors at the show too. 

“In previous years we noticed increasing interest from conference speakers and delegates to attend the MEBAA Show, and vice versa,” Alnaqbi continued. “It makes sense for the conference to take place on the show floor to bring these two events together.”
