MRO Middle East & AIME event

MRO Middle East and Aircraft Interiors Middle East (AIME) is set to return to Dubai in 2024 for its biggest edition yet, gathering the entire airline supply chain over two days.

The event saw record-breaking attendance in 2023, welcoming almost 6,400 visitors, an increase of 46 percent compared to the previous year, and almost 200 exhibitors from 97 countries. Catering to the higher demand, the event will have an extra hall for 2024, providing even more exhibition and networking opportunities.

Taking place from 5th to 6th March 2024 at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), this will be the first edition where both shows are organized under the same parent company, following Informa’s acquisition of Tarsus Group earlier this year, streamlining and strengthening the show for attendees.

The additional event hall adds 2,000 square meters of exhibition space, adding over 50 exhibitor booths, a dedicated Meeting Zone for enhanced networking and an extended Airline Lounge, an exclusive space for VIP airlines and lessors. It will also allow for a larger area dedicated to startups and SMEs, providing a platform to highlight their breakthrough technologies, innovations and new ideas.
