Bigger air show in Dubai but will there be orders?
The 2015 Dubai Airshow next month will be the biggest in its history with the expected number of trade visitors and exhibitors to top 2013s record show.
Over 1,100 exhibitors have confirmed they will be at the show with 65,000 trade visitors expected to pass through the doors from Sunday November 8 to Thursday November 12, according to organisers F&E Aersopace. The last show, in 2013, had 1046 exhibitors and 60,692 visitors.
“The Dubai Airshow is a platform for new aerospace technologies, it’s a platform for launches of new equipment, it’s all about the up to date information on the aerospace industry,” Michel van Akelijen, Managing Director of F&E Aersopace said at a pre-air show press conference in Dubai on Wednesday.
The aircraft display area has been expanded to accommodate an expected 160 aircraft, including an Emirates Airbus A380 and a Qatar Executive G650ER. The organisers have also added additional car parking space. Details
