The Airport Show has concluded after a three-day run at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC). The organisers, Reed Exhibitions Middle East, said the event broke all records in its 19-year history in terms of occupied exhibition space, number of country pavilions, exhibitors, hosted buyers and visitors.

The event had participation from 375 exhibitors from 60 countries who showcased more than 50 new technologies and products to a record 7,500 participants and visitors. It also had record participation in the form of 211 Hosted Buyers from 30 countries, up from last year’s 180. Reed Exhibitions said that next year’s edition will have an extra 1,000 square metres of exhibition space making 16,000 overall.

Three new co-located events have also been added for the next year edition: Ground Handling, GSE and Air Cargo. The existing Global Airport Leaders Forum (GALF), Aviation Security and Air Traffic Control (ATC) Forum will be retained for 2020.
