Accelerating Business and Innovation For Future Airports

Through the solid support from both government and private sectors, the 19th edition of Airport Show will continue to offer our airport development teams and colleagues around the region an invaluable opportunity to view the latest global technologies, meet aviation experts from around the world and share ideas, best practices and create new opportunities for our industry to collaborate.

The 2019 Airport Show features two co-located events; the second edition of both Airport Security Middle East and ATC Forum . These three events combine to create the ideal platform for the Middle East, Africa and South Asia’s aviation authorities, companies and individuals to come together and collaborate to improve global aviation.
