One of the world’s leading airport industry B2B events, Airport Show’s 20th Edition is now scheduled to begin on May 24, 2021, in Dubai. 

The 3-day event, organized by Reed Exhibitions Middle East will host the top decision-makers of key airports from across the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia (MENASA) region, making their way to Dubai, in search of new products and services for their facilities.

The 20th edition of the show which will take place in Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) will spread across 11000 square meters of exhibition space with exhibitors and participants arriving from over 50 countries to sell, procure or make long-term trade commitments during the event.

The Airport Show will also see the 6th edition of the Global Airport Leaders Forum (GALF) and the 3rd edition of ATC Forum being organized in tandem with the marquee event. This year, the GALF event will see two new conferences, Airport Passengers’ Experience and Airport Digital Transformation being added to its lineup of conferences.

Mr. Daniyal Qureshi, Group Exhibition Director at Reed Exhibitions Middle East, said significant investments and upgrades will be taking place at airports globally to implement the new health, safety and technology adoption initiatives by IATA and Airports Council International (ACI) with Airport Show a central meeting place to showcase new innovations to industry players.

“Key changes expected to be implemented at airports over the next five years will focus on new IT-driven technology and solutions and adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain, Cloud, Remote Control and Drone Technology; new green targets and initiatives, and passenger-centric touch-less solutions, self-check-in/bag drop and mobile-enabled services. Airports have always been exploring new ways to simplify the overall travel experience by adopting smart technologies and solutions which one can find in plenty at Airport Show,” Mr. Qureshi added.
