Dubai Airport Show rescheduled to October

WAM

Dubai Airport Show has been rescheduled to October 26 to 28, 2020.

The world’s largest annual airport industry event was supposed to take place in June but has to be postponed due to COVID-19.

Set to be held at the Dubai World Trade Centre, the 20th edition is expected to attract 375 exhibiting companies and 8,500 visitors from nearly 20 countries. 

"Global air transport supports almost $3 trillion in global economic activity, with the world’s airlines carrying more than four billion passengers and 60 million tonnes of freight every year," said Daniyal Qureshi, Group Exhibitions Director, Reed Exhibitions Middle East.

"Aviation's contribution during periods of global emergencies such as we are facing today is critical, delivering thousands of tonnes of food, medicine and essential supplies to the worst affected and enabling world leaders and experts to efficiently collaborate and support rehabilitation efforts. 

"There is no doubt that COVID-19 has and will severely affect our industry. However, we are confident that once we are through these challenging times, aviation will once again play its important role in supporting economic recovery efforts around the world."
