The joint organisers of MRO Middle East & Aircraft Interiors Middle East (AIME) have today announced new dates for the events. The exhibitions, organised by Aviation Week Network/Informa and Tarsus Group, will now take place from 15th – 16th June 2021 at DWTC, Dubai.
The exhibition, initially planned for March this year, was postponed as the organisers took into consideration the health and safety of exhibitors and visitors, as well as travel restrictions related to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We have been continually monitoring the developments on travel restrictions from governments around the world in recent weeks. After very careful consideration of the situation and taking into account invaluable feedback from our exhibitors and stakeholders, we believe the decision to move the exhibition is in the best interests of the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors, contractors and staff,” said Tim Hawes, managing director of Tarsus Aerospace. “With the increased vaccination schedules implemented in key markets and the strength of Dubai’s recovery, we believe that moving the exhibition to June 2021 will allow us to deliver a quality event for everyone.”
Lydia Janow, managing director of events at Aviation Week Network added, “After a recent hiatus in industry events and the significant impact on the commercial aviation industry from the Covid-19 pandemic, the exhibition will provide an important platform for recovery, allowing for the community to discuss solutions to the new challenges we face, share new industry trends and showcase the latest technologies.”
The delay will give the exhibitors at the events a better opportunity to display their latest products and services to airlines, MROs, OEMs, lessors, suppliers and aircraft interior specialists.
The upcoming shows will also include seminars, workshops and product demonstrations, along with a pre-arranged meetings programme to facilitate connections and networking between visitors and exhibitors. In addition, the Airline Buyers Programme will allow attendees to meet and network with regional and global airlines.
