1,200 exhibitors for Dubai Airshow

As many as 1,200 exhibitors and 72,500 trade visitors are expected at the 2017 edition of the Dubai Airshow, which runs from November 12 to 16 at the DWC, Dubai Airshow Site. 

The air show continues to earn its reputation as the centre of the aerospace industry with exhibitors for the 2017 edition travelling from as far afield as Asia and Latin America in addition to large representations from both Europe and the Middle East. 

With an almost equal percentage of exhibitors from Europe to those from the Middle East, plus many from further afield, the air show will host representatives from the global aerospace industry.

In addition, almost one-fifth of the exhibitors at the five-day event will be travelling from the Americas with the majority of these hailing from the US and Canada. Among these are several first-time exhibitors including PBS Aerospace from the US and Vector Aerospace from Canada.

In fact, many of the shows new exhibitors this year come from around the globe including Lubair Aviation from Hong Kong, Taurus Systems from South Korea, Bertin Technologies from France and TBS from Bulgaria, plus plenty of new representatives from across the Middle East.

Dubai benefits from a geographical advantage, being situated within eight hours flight of two thirds of the world and has established itself as an aviation hub between east and west as a result of this. The Dubai Airshow has grown exponentially since its inception 30 years ago as the industry recognises the importance of the region. 

“The Dubai Airshow has always represented the centre of the aerospace industry,” says Michele van Akelijen, Managing Director of the show’s organiser Tarsus F&E Middle East. “Seeing the geographical representations of this years exhibitors, both new and returning, travelling to Dubai to be part of the show demonstrates that the Dubai Airshow really is the place for the industry to do business. We are looking forward to welcoming them all and of course to a successful show.”

Tarsus F&E Middle East is one of the most influential names in the aerospace industry's events sector, and which launched the very first Dubai Airshow in 1989, in conjunction with Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, Dubai Airports and the UAE Armed Forces. 

Covering all aerospace-related events in the Tarsus portfolio, Tarsus F&E Middle East has a long-standing relationship with the global aerospace industry, an in-depth knowledge of the market and a hard-earned reputation for delivering event excellence.
