The ATC Network and The Airport Show, Dubai organised by Reed Exhibitions have agreed on a partnership to help promote the event and further promote the ATC Network in the Middle East.
Now in its 10th year, the Airport Show is firmly established as one of the worlds leading events devoted exclusively to airport construction, operations, technology and services. Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Chairman of Dubai Airports, the Airport Show is supported by leading international industry associations and local government authorities. The Airport Show offers an unrivalled combination of high-quality networking and business development opportunities through a series of Roundtable Discussions, Innovation and Project Seminars and the Hosted Buyer programme. The organizers of the The Airport Show in Dubai have announced that they expect to see the number of project buyers attending the event double over the previous year. The announcement comes as the organizers have increased the focus on further improving the return on investment (ROI) that exhibitors and visitors can generate from their participation. More than 80 purchasing decision makers and project leaders from live and current airport construction projects across the region are expected to attend. A significant number have already confirmed their participation, including representatives from Doha International Airport in Qatar, Khartoum New International Airport in Sudan, Maharashtra Airport Development Co. Ltd. in Mumbai, Cairo Airport Company in Egypt, as well as some from further afield, including Oslo Airport in Norway, Tan son Nhat International airport in Vietnam and Cape Town International Airport in South Africa. Regional demand has been increasing significantly with more than AED 220 billion worth of airport-related projects estimated to be under way. At least 39 airports across the region are either under construction or undergoing modernization, said Mohamad Bader-Eddin, Show Director, Reed Exhibitions. The Airport Show will open its doors for the tenth time from 25-27 April 2010 in Airport Expo Dubai.
