Airport Show Hybrid+ rescheduled to 2021 and a new Digital Event introduced in 2020

Reed Exhibitions, organisers of Airport Show, would like to express their condolences to everyone affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The team have been closely monitoring the global health crisis and our top priority remains the health and safety of everyone involved in our event.

Following conversations with our global customers and based on the most recent market analyses from our regional partners and stakeholders, along with the ongoing travel restrictions around the world, we have decided to cancel this year’s Airport Show, initially planned for October 2020.

“Unfortunately we have had to cancel our event in line with the feedback we have received from the various stakeholders. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause and are grateful to our customers for all their support and constructive input during this challenging time.” Commented Vasyl Zhygalo, Managing Director – Reed Exhibitions Middle East.

The next edition of Airport Show will now take place on 24-26 May 2021. It remains the regional event of reference and market leader for airport development, offering a global platform for industry stakeholders to inspire innovation, facilitate connections, accelerate partnerships and ultimately enable regional authorities to create the most advanced aviation facilities in the world.

As we look forward with optimism to a post-pandemic world, the Airport Show team is pleased to announce a new Digital Event set to take place on 7-9 December 2020. This digital-only event will keep our community connected, explore new market needs and support the industry towards forming a ‘new normal’ with official support of UAE government authorities ahead of the Live Event in May.

We remain in close contact with all our global stakeholders - partners, clients and contractors - please do not hesitate to contact us if you require further clarification or information at info@theairportshow.com and we will get back to you as quickly as possible.
