The Middle East & North Africa Business Aviation Association (MEBAA) Show has been postponed to 22-24 February 2021. It will be held at DWC Airshow Site in Dubai, UAE. The event was originally scheduled for 8-10 December 2020, but was postponed over concerns around the COVID-19 outbreak.
“We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 spread over the past few weeks as well as developments on travel restrictions from governments around the world,” said Ali Alnaqbi, founding and executive chairman of MEBAA. “After very careful consideration of the situation and taking into account invaluable feedback from our exhibitors and stakeholders, we believe the decision to postpone the event is in the best interests of the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors, contractors and staff. We understand this news will be disappointing to the business aviation industry; however, we believe that in postponing the show to February 2021 we will be better positioned to deliver a quality event for everyone.”
The show is a platform for business aircraft manufacturers, avionics firms, completion centres, charter companies and aircraft resellers to display their latest products and services. The upcoming edition will host several new features, including access to hours of content through thought-leadership seminars and workshops along with a pre-arranged meetings programme to facilitate connection and networking between visitors and exhibitors. In addition, the new Luxury Travel Operators Segment will allow attendees to meet and network with regional and global high-end travel operators.
