Industry Relevance 

The Airport Show is an annual event based in Dubai, UAE, and functions as a leading B2B business platform aimed at innovation and knowledge sharing. The Dubai World Trade Center hosts the editions every May, and the very first edition took place in 2001. Buyers attend the Airport Show, because it’s the one-stop marketplace for innovative technologies. You have an overview of the entire market and access to the latest in air traffic management, airfield construction and installations, beacon technology, architecture, airport security, automatic vending machines, flight information systems, duty free, driverless terminal vehicles and ICT technologies. 

Aside from business, there are also influential support events like the Global Airport Leaders' Forum (GALF) and the Women In Aviation general assembly. Of course, that doesn’t account for other aviation professionals.

Who Are You Going to Meet? 

The companies that exhibit include suppliers and manufacturers of all airport-related equipment and technologies. You will recognize names like Assaia International AG, Bayanat Engineering UAE, British Aviation Group, CU Phosco Lighting, DTP and EGIS. Aside from countries in the Middle East, North Africa and Southeast Asia, there are also a lot of visitors coming from Europe including the UK, Greece, Italy, Spain, France, and Switzerland among many others. 

The type of visitors to attend represent airlines, airports, air navigation service providers, civil aviation authority, border security, cargo and freight companies, civil defence and ground handling just to name a few. Of course, that doesn’t account for other aviation professionals.

Additional Value of Attending 

The 2023 Women in Aviation Middle East Anniversary event takes place on May 9th – May 10th at the Sheikh Saeed Hall 1 of Dubai World Trade Centre. The 2023 edition marks the event’s 10th anniversary, and it promises to deliver an exciting program and even more attention to participants. After all, this is the premier meeting place for international aviation leaders, female industry role models, and hundreds of college and university students looking to join the aviation industry.

Organised by the Women in Aviation Middle East Chapter and the Emirates Aviation Association, the event stimulates the process of increasing gender parity across the region's aviation industry, which has been historically conservative in this regard. Women in Aviation provides a platform for attendees to engage with like-minded individuals, share knowledge, and explore opportunities across multiple fields.

One of the key highlights of the event are the six coveted awards being handed out. These awards recognize excellence and achievement in various categories related to aviation. The awards are as follows: Best Education Institution, Best Crew Training Programme, Most Supportive Company for WAI ME in the last 10 years, Most Sustainable Company in Aviation, Best Influencer in Aviation Field, and the Achiever Award for Women in Aviation.

The Achiever Award is particularly significant, as it recognizes women who have made significant contributions to the aviation industry and have been instrumental in increasing gender diversity in the industry. The award winners will be chosen by a panel of experts and will be announced at the event.
