Dubai airport show set to attract record exhibitors


A record number of the world’s leading airports and aviation suppliers will be descending on Dubai in June.

They will be entering with the view to capitalising on billions of dollars worth of airport development programmes in the Middle East.
Decision-makers for airport projects worth an estimated $5.72 billion across the Middle East and North Africa alone have already confirmed their presence at the Airport Build & Supply Exhibition, taking place from June 7 to 9 at Airport Expo Dubai.
Event organisers, Streamline Marketing, will announce shortly the attendance of more consultants and civil aviation officials behind other Middle East airport developments.
The Dubai event is now well established as a forum for the selection and pre-qualification of suppliers and contractors for the region’s airport industry.
Among the invited targeted audience of regional departments of civil aviation, government departments, VIPs and UAE-based consultants and contractors is leading airport consultant Dar al Handasah, which will be seeking subcontractors for Dubai International Airport’s $4.2 billion expansion project.
Dar al Handasah is also involved in a  $540 million renovation project for airports in Cairo and Sharm El Sheikh.
These are part of the Egyptian Airports Company’s overall development plan for all 21 airports in the country.
