Business aviation is set to have a high profile at the next Dubai Airshow later this year (November 15-19). The Middle East has not been immune from the global economic crisis but remains a major prospective growth market for an industry that has seen a significant slowdown in both North America and Europe.
Business aviation will be an important facet of the new Bahrain Airshow to be staged in the Arabian Gulf state from January 21 to 23, 2010. The show will feature purpose-built chalets in front of which exhibitors will be able to park their display aircraft.

The prolific growth of the Middle East market for business aviation should be clearly apparent at the second Middle East Business Aviation (MEBA) show this month. The three-day event will be staged at Dubai’s Airport Expo Center from November 16 to 18 and is projected to be more than twice the size of the first full MEBA show, held in January last year.
The strong growth of the Middle East market for business aviation will be evident at the second Middle East Business Aviation (MEBA) expo next month. The three-day event, to be staged at Dubai’s Airport Expo Center from November 16 to 18, is projected to grow to twice the size of the first stand-alone MEBA show held over two days in January 2007.
Fairs & Exhibitions is describing the biennial Dubai Air show, which celebrated its tenth anniversary in 2007, as “The world’s third largest aerospace exhibition.”
The 2009 show will have a new venue– “Aviation City” at Dubai World Central, the UAE’s new six-runway mega-airport in Jebel Ali.
Fairs & Exhibitions Aerospace, which runs the Dubai Airshow and other events in the Middle East, has named Heather Rezek as general manager. She is tasked with building the company’s portfolio of shows, which–in addition to the Dubai Airshow–includes Middle East Business Aviation, Aircraft Interiors Middle East Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul Middle East, and Aerospace & Defence Training Show.
The relaunched Singapore Airshow will stage its first event at a brand-new venue from February 19 to 24.
Two years after 9/11, Dubai’s biennial air show will declare itself to be firmly back to business as usual when it opens next month (December 7 to 11) in the United Arab Emirates. Last time, the event convincingly put on a brave face in the wake of 9/11 and the U.S.-led war against Al Qaeda and its Taliban allies in Afghanistan (just 500 miles north).
The UAE’s requirement for an airborne early warning (AEW) aircraft was another topic bubbling just under the surface at Dubai, [UAE SET TO MAKE AEW&C CHOICE FROM NORTHROP, BOEING OR SAAB] as reported in AIN’s Dubai Air Show Tuesday edition.
