Exhibition Team Visits MEBAA

Simon Ford our Head of Sales and Sponsorship for the Farnborough International Airshow and Bahrain International Airshow visited MEBAA earlier this month. 

Celebrating its 10th Anniversary, the show has grown from strength to strength and now plays a significant role as a platform for the business aviation community across the MENA (Middle East & North Africa) region to come and discuss the issues affecting the sector and do business.

Of the many exhibitors in the halls, leading names including Honeywell, Rockwell Collins, Lufthansa Technik, TAG Aviation, Pratt & Whitney, Sky Prime Aviation were all present. The static park was also full with presence from Bombardier, Boeing Business Jets, Airbus, Dassault, Embraer, Textron.

HondaJet which debuted at FIA16 earlier this year made its Middle East debut and attracted a lot of attention. As did Piaggio with its Avanti EVO aircraft. The fastest twin turboprop in production, the aircraft’s distinctive design and advanced technological features make it a remarkable aircraft. Debuting in May this year, Piaggio received its first major order for the EVO at the Farnborough Airshow this summer.

Whilst at the show we attended a number of meetings with potential exhibitors for Farnborough International Airshow which will take place from 17 – 21 July 2018. If the Farnborough Airshow is something of interest please contact a member of the exhibition team to discuss.
