Following Dubai 2005, the most successful Dubai air show to date in terms of exhibitor, visitor and aircraft numbers, size and declared on-site deals, Fairs & Exhibitions (F&E), which organises the biennial series, has announced plans to further develop the event with a specialised aircraft interiors pavilion.

The pavilion will debut at Dubai 2007, the 10th international aerospace exhibition, which will be held at Airport Expo from November 11-15, 2007.
“We have researched this thoroughly with industry segment members who believe their own pavilion will reflect the growing market demand throughout the Middle East and India for both commercial and private aircraft – this is another example of the Dubai air show evolving to better serve the industry it partners,” said Virginia Kern, chairman, F&E.
And the initiative was immediately welcomed by the interiors sector. “We are very open to the idea which could work well for the industry by focusing genuine interest on the pavilion,” said Marco Tonucci, area sales manager, Aviointeriors. “The Middle East market for my product category – aircraft seating – is now worth around $500 million.”
