Airport expo on track for record showing


The Middle East Airport Build & Supply Exhibition to be held in Dubai next month, is on course for its largest showing yet with three new country pavilions and to date, exhibitors from 14 countries.

Last year's Airport Build & Supply Exhibition was attended by over 100 exhibitors from 13 countries with a direct focus on Dubai's $1.4 billion airport expansion project.

This year, with plans revealed for a Terminal 3 and a budget of $2.5 billion, the event from June 3-5 at the Airport Expo, will once again look at Dubai International Airport and its phenomenal growth plans, but encourage more regional airport authorities with similar expansion programmes to participate.

"During the exhibition, meetings will be organised between exhibitors and airport project consultants, enabling exhibitors to discuss specific tender packages and present their products, services and technologies directly to project decision makers," explained Joanne Evans, director, Streamline Marketing - organisers of the event.

"Included in this will be pre-arranged, private meetings between every exhibitor and the relevant project manager, engineer or architect in the Dubai Department of Civil Aviation," she added.
