Why Bahrain International Airshow?

From force modernization to expanding airport infrastructure, the Bahrain International Airshow (BIAS) attracts motivated buyers from across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region searching for high-quality equipment, innovative technology and design, and extraordinary service presented in a highly personalized trade show environment. Established in 2010, the 5th edition of the show, being held in November 2020, will mark 10 years since the first planes took the sky for the Kingdom’s visitors. Held under the patronage of His Majesty King Hamed bin Isa Al Khalifa, King of the Kingdom of Bahrain, the biennial event is renowned for its world-class facilities and intimate setting for delegates and exhibitors alike. Conveniently scheduled opposite the odd-year biennial Dubai Airshow, the 2020 edition will present an impressively diverse and dynamic aviation and aerospace marketplace, reflecting the Kingdom’s continued need to upgrade and modernize its air defenses and further improve its airport infrastructure. Unique to this edition of the Bahrain International Airshow will be the awarding of the Astronaut Al Worden Endeavour Scholarship to four Bahraini students. These students, who are involved in or demonstrate a desire to further their studies in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, are chosen by the educational authority of Bahrain, to travel to, and participate in Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama.
