Not only will this year give attendees the chance to connect with world-class aviation companies, we also have an expansive range of product launches and technology showcasing moments to present. These include new biometric-based airport solutions from global leader emaratech, as well as advanced security & inspection solutions from Nuctech, to name a few. Here’s the full list  of our Exhibitor Showcase Channel participants.

We’ve launched the Remote Connect Hub for Airport Show 2021, allowing those exhibitors who can’t join us in person to set up their own dedicated exhibition pods at the event, where they will showcase their products and services remotely. This means that, no matter the ongoing difficulties posed by COVID, attendees won’t have to miss out on the best the industry has to offer.

See What the Participants had to say

I was excited to be participating in the Airport Show which reflects the resilience of the important players in the Middle East aviation sector. There is a positive vibe in the atmosphere. I appreciate organisers of this show for their immense efforts behind bringing industry leaders to Dubai. The UAE has always been supportive to business activities. The Airport Show further proves it.

Iqbal Durrani
Managing Director of Advance Development Agency (ADA) Group

Hosting this show was quite important. The Airport Show’s success gives hope of recovery. It is a well-organised B2B event. The number of participating companies is less than its previous editions which might be due to the current global scenario. But, the show’s success reflects the signs of revival.

Mohamed Salah
Trade Analyst, Italian Trade Agency in Dubai:

There are opportunities in the UAE, as well as the Middle East region, to grow further. As a market leader, Schindler is ready to support projects in the region. People will keep travelling – whether for business or pleasure. But they will be much more aware of clean mobility. The aviation players must be ready to adapt to the changing travel pattern and adopt new technologies to come up to the passengers’ expectations. Schindler Clean Mobility Solutions can play an important role in ensuring hygiene and safety in elevators, escalators and moving walks.

Massimo Minatta
Head of Infrastructures Business, Schindler:

Dubai has been a hub of tourism and retail and it has continued to maintain that status, while Saudi Arabia has vast potential of expansion. The region gives confidence of playing a major role in the revival of the global aviation industry.

Philippe Dumont
Chief Operating Officer, Rubix S&I

Projects are coming up in the region and expressed confidence that there will be more opportunities in the next six months. He said that the year 2022 will mark the recovery, although one may notice some signs of recovery even now. We appreciate the decision to host the Airport Show. The goal here is to connect with people in the region. It is the first step to get back and reconnect with people in the UAE as well as other neighbouring countries to find new partners.
