The biennial Dubai Airshow, to be held from November 13 to 17 at the Dubai Airport Expo, is expected to draw as many as 1,000 exhibitors from more than 50 countries and attract more than 55,000 trade visitors.
At the 2009 event, business aircraft accounted for roughly a quarter of all the aircraft on display, and the organizers expect similar numbers this year, with business aircraft accounting for 40 of the expected 140 on static display. Alison Weller, managing director of show organizer F&E Aerospace (Stand 1751), acknowledged the importance of business aviation at the event.
The Middle East Business Aviation show, which runs alternate years from the Dubai Airshow, is planned for December 11 to 13, 2012.
Representatives from F&E Aerospace are here at EBACE taking bookings for the various events.
