Show Director’s safety statement

"The global exhibitions industry continues to be shaped by the COVID-19 disease, however here in Dubai, we are ready to reopen. In January 2021, Reed Exhibitions released the 2nd edition of its Global Health and Safety Strategy with the health and safety of our exhibitors, visitors, staff and partners as our top priority.

The world’s economy depends on aviation for global business recovery, tourism, freight and the millions of jobs it creates. Airport Show 2021 takes place with the worst year in aviation history behind us and innovation and collaboration more critical than ever before. At Airport Show 2021 we will help you restart those important conversations you missed over the last eighteen months and build new opportunities to support your own recovery efforts.

We are pleased to invite you to return with us to fruitful and prosperous trade exhibitions, bringing our customers together again to get business growing. We wish you a safe and rewarding Airport Show 2021."
